Titanium is a wonderful material for a handlebar. A bit more weight than carbon but for a little weight you get an unparralled ride, strength and the Roost Ti bars scream baller.
The upshot of a Titanium handle bar is that they ride a little more comfortably than the aluminum or carbon bar’s, especially on bigger hits, where they take the sting off. It’s a great compromise, they’re comfortable, but not so flexible that they give a vague steering feel or unpredictable handling.
There is no denying that these bars are on the upper end of the price range. So why would anyone want titanium? Well, it looks cool for one–there’s just something about that corrosion-resistant grey metal some of us love. Longevity and durability are less vain reasons to choose titanium. Of the three materials, carbon is the most susceptible to damage in a crash, and aluminum has the shortest fatigue life. Titanium has a longer fatigue life than aluminum and is less vulnerable in a crash than carbon. Most manufacturers recommend replacing handlebars every one to three years to prevent fatigue failure. Roost bike recommends every seven years for the titanium bar’s! In other words, in the long run, the titanium bar costs less and is just so much more sexy than the others.
This bar will look good and ride well on your bike for years. Roost bars come in 31.8mm dia with lengths from 580mm up to 780mm. Roost Titanium bar’s are the very best bar you can buy for a MTB.
