Superstar Flatland 780-12 handlebar - in brief £35

Wide bar at a bargain price

BikeRadar score 4/5

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.
