The rather bright, affordable Superstar Highline 780-40 bar comes in just about every colour known to man, so if hue-matching is your thing you’ll be in your element here.
Unsurprisingly, the 780-40 has a 40mm rise and is 780mm wide. If you want to trim it down there are cut marks, but they don’t denote widths. Setup is a doddle thanks to the centre lines, which help with getting the bar centred and rolled to the desired angle.
The 6-degree upsweep and 8-degree backsweep create a comfortable feel, and the 40mm rise is ideal if you’re looking to raise your front end for riding steep stuff.
