Our review

Heavy but a workable relaxed sweep shape at a great price

BBB stands for Bikeparts for Bikers by Bikers, and the Skybar proves that basic upgrading needn’t even cost £20.

While weight is an issue compared with more expensive pipes, the Skybar is still double-butted and heat-treated. This makes it both tougher and a whole lot less jarring to use than a lot of cheap bars we’ve suffered with.

While the high centre and fat bends feel slightly old skool compared with newer, more subtly shaped bars, most riders can twist it to a workable position.

The big 10-degree backsweep suits those who like a laid-back cruiser feel. Certainly one of the better sub-£25 bars we’ve used.
