Nukeproof Warhead bar review£44.99

Big bars at the right price

BikeRadar score3.5/5

Nukeproof are building themselves an excellent reputation for reliable performance at a fair price and these bars have had a lot to do with that.

The 760mm width means there’s more span than most riders will need, but with a low rise and average backsweep that sits nicely in your gloves from the first ride. Positioning and trim marks are included in the laser etched logo package to make any tweaking easy.

Thin wall tips and extended ‘lazy’ bends leave 25cm of control space and reduce sting without compromising fine tyre feel at the front end. At less than 300g the Warhead isn't too heavy and we’ve been running a long-term sample for over a year and not experienced any trouble.

Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
