Chapter2 have long been proponents of the one-piece drop-bar design, quoting the improved aerodynamic properties of a seamless integrated bar and stem combo. They offer various one-piece carbon options for road, but this is their first offering to the gravel contingent. 

The tops have a 31.8mm diameter allowing for the attachment of clip-on TT Bars and other accessories

The MANA-GRVL was designed with the AO in mind; Chapter2’s Gravel/Adventure frameset. It isn’t specific to Chapter2 frames, though; it can work with any frame with a 1-1/8” fork steerer such as the RERE, TERE, and HURU where the cables and hoses enter from the underside of the bar.
