Heavier high rise DH bar but relatively comfy and well priced.

Powerplay are a new brand to us but they seem solid enough so far.

This DH bar is certainly not light for a 6061 T6 pipe which suggests its super strong, and it’s shot peened to relieve construction stresses too. The fact it slims before the bend means it’s not as wrist breakingly stiff as you might expect either.

Lots of rise in the bend and the outer sweep also means it’s a good shape if you want your position lifting up, without having to get a riser stem too. Unsurprisingly it didn’t suit everyone who tried it though.
