The matching bar to the stem, the M600 is a distinctive piece of pipe that split our test team.
Weight suggests it's a fairly tough bar but it's not overly brutal in feel. It's shaped for lots of lift in the centre but a much flatter outer profile than a lot of bars. This makes it really good for those who like their hands flat, although the 9 degree backsweep means a lot of wrist warping and rearward weight shift. Unsurprisingly for a noticeably different shaped bar there was some to-ing and fro-ing before everyone was comfortable with it though.
Decent bar for at hand fans but expensive for its weight.
