Chromag have been a top cult brand in Canada for years, but getting them elsewhere has been hard. Not anymore.

The chrome (or black chrome) finish adds £15 over the basic black bar but it looks fantastic on any bike – as long as you use lock-on grips to stop your hands slipping on the polished surface.

The OSX is the extra-wide downhill version and gives you all the leverage you’ll probably ever need, but there are 53mm of trim marks if you need them, just in case.

Low rise and medium layback give a naturally aggressive on-bike position with outstanding stiffness and accuracy. You’ll certainly feel every detail of the trail if you plug these in, but you’re going to have some numb hands and fingers by the end of the day.
