Amoeba concentrate on providing quality finishing kit at a bargain price. We’ve been impressed by the durability and finish of their parts, and their new Borla cockpit in a box didn’t disappoint either.
You get a flat 6061 T6 alloy handlebar that’s 230g and 580mm wide. It’s 25.4mm at the clamp (the old ‘standard’ before the 31.8mm one was brought in) but fear not, as you get a 100mm-long 25.4mm-clamp stem too. It weighs 170g which isn’t light but it isn’t likely to break either.
Add a pair of straight stubby alloy bar ends (132g for the pair), a pair of anatomical rubber grips (66g for the pair) and 4g of bar plugs and you’ve got an entire cockpit ready for XC action.
