“Great Bar for a Really Good Price (If you can find them)”

The Good: 28" width, good weight at 323g, clean logos, low and high rise .

The Bad: 9 degree back sweep, paint/finish scratches easy

Overall Review:

Picked these up last year to get something a little wider than what I had, but wasn't sure if I wanted to go all the way to 29"+. Got this bar real cheap on clearance, since Sunline stopped their MTB division, but I am still glad I got them and impressed overall. At 28" the bars are wide, without being too wide. The weight is all not bad at all and strength is really good. I have felt very little flex in the bars when going over or off stuff. This definitely are not a DH bar, but work for light All-Mountain or more aggressive XC. I was also happy with the choice on rise height, 1" or 2", I have the 1" rise. Sunline also did a great job with the clean silver/white graphics over the black finish. The graphics are clean and bring attention to the brand with out being over the job. A couple of complaints I do have is the back sweep at 9 degrees. I know 9 is kinda the standard, but I think 8 degrees would feel a tab better. Also the finish tends to scratch easily. Found the scratch issue when fitting my shifters, brakes and grips. While slide things on and off make sure all is really loose or you will find minor, but many scuffs and scratches down the bar.

After a year I am still happy with these bars and would recommend them as a good back up bar if you can still find them cheap.
