"Going from strength to strength, the last few years has seen rider-run, independent component manufacturer DEITY cement its place in the market as a producer of high-quality goods that both talk the talk and walk the walk. Deity prides itself in making stuff that not only looks good (and it generally does), but that also works well on the bike. The 35mm cockpit standard is not without its challenges when it comes to getting the feel and stiffness right, which is why Deity took their sweet time before introducing a 35mm line. When they finally did, earlier this year, they came to the table with a full range of alloy and carbon bars as well as a 35mm version of their classic Copperhead stem. We’ve spent 3 months putting a couple of samples through the wringer, read on to find out how we’ve been getting along." (VITAL MTB)

We never rest! When we challenged ourselves to design our take on a refined headset cap, we went all out and dove into every detail. From countersunk hardware that is CNC machined from 7075 aluminum, spacer kits that are the same OD as the headset cap for a clean and polished fit and finish, and an array of color options for those looking to really polish up their front ends...the CROSSHAIR is the perfect options for any 1 1/8" headset on the market! Get one TODAY!
"Chapter I takes place at a spot deep in the woods that I had been digging at by myself for years. The goal was always to finish building it so that one day I would have more stuff to ride in an area that riding spots are becoming few and far between, but also so that I could film and shoot photos on it. Year after year it never materialized and became a huge monkey on my back to finish it, until my impending move to Utah last month forced me to buckle down on the shovel all winter and get it done. This video is a look at my first and last hits at the spot I had dug so hard on for years before I packed up and left California for the Utah desert." - TYLER MCCAUL
Our goal at DEITY is to design, develop, and manufacture industry leading contact points and at the top of that list are handlebars. We are proud to debut a comprehensive series of 35mm oversized Carbon and Aluminum Handlebars that have been a labor of love for us and are the perfect match to our established and renowned 31.8mm models.
Featuring a range of flex and deflection matching the 31.8mm counterparts, creating a line of 35mm models that have that “DEITY feel” was not an easy task. In fact, it took years.
Notoriously known for being overly stiff and unforgiving, the 35mm "standard" has taken over the handlebar industry over the past years and many may wonder why we were so late to the party in offering a deep range of 35mm options.
We believe in making every product we offer count and to do it right can take time, many revisions that never see the light of day, and testing protocols that we believe are the benchmark.
To us, it is all about the feel of a handlebar. Having stiffness in the correct points to aid in front wheel tracking, but allowing the bar to have enough flex and range of deflection to keep you on the bike for the entire day. Our goal with the new 35mm Carbon and Aluminum Handlebars was to achieve that proper balance of realistic weight, compliance, strength, fit and finish, and a feel indicative to the DEITY brand.
