Funn know all about serious strength, but the Fatboy is surprisingly trail-friendly. Its 710mm (28in) width gives ample control for the most ambitious moves and an even wider 750mm Full On version is available too.
With only a 5.5-degree upsweep it doesn’t raise you up like a shopper bike, and the eight-degree backsweep is a degree more aggressive than most bars.
The long, shallow rise section and triple butting just about keep your hands alive on long lift-assisted days too, making it our default loaner bar for anyone heading for the Alps. Respectable weight and price give it the edge on most of its opposition too.
