The Good: Dialed bend and sweep. Good weight. Good strength
The Bad: Finish scratches easily
This bar is tits! I put one on my TR Bandit 29 this spring as I wanted a Deity bar but also wanted a super low-rise to keep the front end of the wagon wheeler low. Debated for a while about going with a lesser bar for my trail bike but in the end, the weight is very respectable and this bar gives me the confidence to charge into the unknown without fear of breaking a bar and ending up in a broken heap of hurt. After a season of trying to find mine and the Bandit's limits, this bar has never once left me wanting for anything else.
Support for the most rider focused and customer serviced focused brand in the business! This is huge to me. There are not many companies anymore where you can call the same employee, day in and day out, place an order and then get a personalized note written on your packing list thanking you for your business and asking you for feedback on their products. I have yet to have a warranty issue with Deity but if I ever do, I know that my request will be met with respect and open communication.
Oh ya, the bars!- Super sexy black ano/black polished finish and graphics. Super comfy and secure feel. Just enough give to dampen the buzz from high speed chatter. Strong. Light. Awesome width for aggressive riding. All positive.
The finish scratches pretty easily out here in the rocky desert where I ride. Not many finishes don't though.
Buy this bar (if you want a low, wide, light, and strong bar for just about any mtb application) and every other Deity product you can justify to put on your bike and ride away happy knowing you have top-notch components from a company that values their customers and is driven to constantly improve their products through rider feedback. Can't go wrong!
