Takes some adjusting to with that extra width, but inspire confidence after that

With the increased popularity of 29ers, riders keen to keep their lofty front ends low should consider Loaded’s AMX flat bar.


Measuring a whopping 810mm wide, the AMX bar comes with cut marks to cater for everyone’s width tastes, as well as a detail in the centre of the bar for stem alignment.

It took a fair amount of time experimenting with bar position to get things feeling somewhere near comfortable, as the zero upsweep, combined with the eight-degree backsweep, takes a bit of getting used to.

Once you get that position sorted though, the AMX has a solid, stiff feel, giving positive point and shoot confidence.
