NC-17 Big DH S-Pro downhill bar review

Another wideboy handlebar

BikeRadar score3.5/5

These 785mm wide bars from NC-17 really look the part, with their black anodised finish. There are also laser-etched details for centring the bar in the stem, and a date of purchase area underneath where your right-hand grip sits.

They feel great too, with five degrees of upsweep and nine degrees of backsweep. This sits your hands in a comfortable position, considering how far apart they are on the bars.

They’re internally butted and weigh just 312g, which is competitive when you consider the width of the bar, but becomes even better when you look at the pricetag too.
