Our review

Proven rock solid bar with nicely detailed pipe. Stem is the new lighter face of a super-strength legend. Impressive so far

The much loved Diabolus bar gets a facelift to match the new stem. Average backsweep keeps hands neutral but the tall centre has more upwards outer sweep than usual. It tapers before the bend to take a bit of sting out, but there’s nothing distracting going on. The shot-peened centre fades out into flames towards the control zone section, to justify the cost (at least cosmetically).

The original Diabolus stem is something of a strength legend and the new D2 looks set to inherit the legacy. An interlocking back-sloped top plate extends down into the lower U for a totally closed low-stress bar connection and solid steering. The low stack height (35mm) back end gets big squared ridges and twin opposing bolts for total lock down, but it’s much lighter than the original. It comes in various lengths, including OnePointFive versions.
