This oversized handlebar from Canadian street/ trials company Simtra is built to inspire confidence.

The 700mm (27.5in) width and 40mm (1.6in) rise produce a good, natural feel and there’s room to cut the bar down, but be sure to have your controls in place first because the oversizing might limit adjustability.

The bar is made from strong 6061 T6 aluminium and it boasts a 31.8mm clamp, so it should hold its own when being flipped, whipped or hucked.

There’s a choice of four colour schemes available but the thick paint might mean you’ll have trouble running Lock-On style grips.

The 440g weight is reasonable and the price is competitive.
