Superstar Flatland 780-12 handlebar

BikeRadar verdict

80.0 out of 5 stars

"Wide, bright and a bit of a bargain, this is a top new-school wide bar"

Friday, September 20, 2013 9.00am By

If you want a wider cockpit without breaking the bank or a sturdy low-rise bar for hooning about on, try this 780mm pipe. It's made from butted 7075 aluminium and weighs 320g, putting it right on the money for a bar this wide.

We got on well with the low 12mm rise, and the eight-degree backsweep and five-degree upsweep put our hands in an aggressive but comfortable position. There are even some amusing cut-marks if you want to cop out of the full width. The bar is available in 10 anodised colours.
