Our review

Great wreckers bar, but not for those after comfort or subtlety.

With a cromoly TAF (Tough As F**k) steel construction it’s perfect for big riders, regular wreckers and any other hardened cockpit criminals.

Thanks to lots of butting it’s only around 50g heavier than big alloy bars. Undeniable ‘bend not snap’ advantages are traded against seriously jarring feel on the bike.

In terms of fit it’s a relatively high rise bar (though a 3in rise version is available) with not much backsweep, so it’ll suit riders who really like to get forward over the front of the bike. At 22.2mm diameter it’ll fit BMX stems (like Gusset’s Li’l GIT) direct while shims are supplied to ?t standard 25.4mm MTB stems.
