An idea, a technical innovation and a lot of passion. Those are the ingredients of Renthal's success story, which has its origin in Manchester. There, over 40 years ago, both founders Henry Rosenthal and Andrew Renshaw had the goal to develop their own handlebars for trial bikes. As the founders did not just push their project with a lot of passion, but used aluminium as the first producers in the manufacture of handlebars, they could soon enter new territories with this technical innovation. This is how Renthal entered the Motocross market with the quality and the durability of their handlebars in 1975.
With the goal of technical innovation and permanent advancement in sight, which resulted in constantly lighter Motocross handlebars with extremely low vibrations, Renthal could grow continuously throughout the 1970's and 80's and grew into one of the leading manufacturers of handlebars for Motocross and Mountain bikes. The success of drivers and bikes which competed with Renthal handlebars show that Renthal met their high requirements on the race track. 181 world champion titles and 184 US titles were collected by them in the past years.
The quality also doesn't go unnoticed with reputable producers of Motocross bikes either. Since 2004 Renthal receives the highest praise one can get in Motocross for their high-quality handlebars. Over 10 years now, the top performance bikes of Suzuki, KTM, Honda and Kawasaki are equipped with Renthal handlebars Twinwall, Fatbar or 7/8 Handlebar as original equipment. The Brits offer the same quality for Mountain bikes, as they could profit from their experiences and implement them in the production of their Mountain bike and Downhill handlebars. Renthal also pushed the advancement for its handlebars here and put the focus especially on carbon as material.
