X-Lite Pro carbon bar ends review£39.99

Position perfectors

BikeRadar score4/5

These tiny position perfectors from X-Lite let you add a touch of cross-country racer to your mountain bike.

The forged alloy clamp is only 15mm wide, so it nibbles minimal space from your cockpit, and it’s bonded to the carbon extension using a method developed in the aerospace industry for a strong, long-lasting union. Titanium bolts top off the 84g upgrade.

They’re a bit on the stubby side though, and the 72mm extension feels minimal in larger hands. The neon pink decals won’t be to everyone’s taste and the gloss finish is slippery when wet.
