BikeRadar score 4/5

This BMX-inspired welded chromoly dirt jumping/street handlebar is built to take daily beatings without bothering you with issues like, er, breaking.

It has a 50mm rise (there's enough space between the clamp and the underside of the brace to get most stems on), a 5-degree sweep (minimal by 'riding' riser standards, but about right for jumping) and a 680mm width. This is on the long side - to the point that most riders will be lopping off enough to make two small steel toilet roll holders - but it's better to have too much than too little. The 570g weight would bother XC/day riders, but jumpers will love the feeling of safety it gives, especially when it's combined with Gusset's killer two-year no-quibble warranty.
