    Innolite Bars. Does anyone have any experience with them?

    I found this website: Handlebar MR11

    115g claimed for a 740mm wide bar with a 20mm rise. This is not a super narrow flat bar but the weight is close. For example the easton ec90 is only 5g lighter and 590mm flat. I'm looking at this to replace my easton haven carbon. I only weigh 54kg and they say its good for 120kg so it doesn't sound like I'll be pushing it even on my 150mm AM bike.

    Anyway, I'd love to see some comments on this thing and a suggestion of where I might buy it. Their website only lists 3 shops that have working webpages and only one that seems to actually carry it (Innolite Styre, Rize MR11, 740/20) but it doesn't appear that they ship to the US.

    Thanks!

    I just heard from Innolite that they are going to check how I can order these.

    I'll keep you guys updated.

    That weight is amazing - I have off brand Hylix 660mm and those are 135g. It looks like one will be paying to get the low weight with that width.
    Looking forward to what you find out.

    Yeah I'm looking forward to it. Innolite has been pretty responsive but it will probably be a few weeks before I get them.

    Their warranty is garbage:
    http://innolite.blockweb.se/wp-conte...teWarranty.pdf

    Extended terms regarding handlebars
     Failure due to use of handlebars (or other mounted devices) are not covered by warranty.

    Warranty also says its intended use is xc or marathon.

    That's a hilarious warranty. That's like having a lifetime warranty that actually refers to the life of the handlebar.

    My Schmolke 640 mm, 15 mm riser, not sure about the warranty, but certainly sounds better than Innolite's

    "WARRANTY LOWRISER
    You have purchased a product Made in Germany, each and every handlebar is manufactured by hand and has passed
    a thorough
    final inspection. Ever since our first carbon fibre road bar came out in 1992 our products have been the benchmark for both weight
    and reliability.
    Our products have been tested and have received praise time and again. On top of that athletes have trusted us for their most
    important races. The Topeak-Ergon-Team with Wolfram Kurschat and Irina Kalentieva, and the
    Central Ghost Team with Sabine Spitz
    and Lisi Osl, as well as the M.I.G. Team
    ride our bars and seatposts. Sabine Spitz and Jan Frodeno won the Gold medal in the MTB
    and Triathlon races in Beijing 2008 using Schmolke products.
    Our bars are computer-designed composed of a custom-built fibre layering to meet your individual demands. We therefore
    consider our products strong and reliable enough to offer a free replacement warranty if our bars should fail due to a fault in
    material or manufacture within three years after the date of purchase."

    Yeah their warranty is a joke. He said they are basically race only but as I only weigh 125lbs it would be fine for me for daily use. lol

    I was looking at the MTB Lowriser TLO on the Schmolke site and it says up to 800mm which is nice. I only want like 710mm. How much do they cost? How long does it take to get them? Which Schmokle do you have? How long have you had them? Would you recommend them? Would you buy them again?

    Thanks!

    I got my TLO riser from Fairwheelbikes about a year ago, they had in stock, so it didn't take much time to get here.
    And yes, I would buy it again.
    It's paired with an Extralite stem and I use it only for XC on a Turner Flux.

    When you ride XC do you hit any small jumps? Like 3-4 feet in the air?

    3-4 feet, small? too much for my age and style, 1 ft at the most for me.
