Favorite All-Mountain bar

The Good:

-Slightly off of the popular geometry -The 38mm rise version comes stock at 760mm... spot on. -Combo of upsweep/backsweep creates a magic sweetspot -Most natural balance with my 160mm fork up front.

The Bad:

- logo cracked and peeled off. Can't have everything. - never knew they were custom butted.

Overall Review:

Oh My Gold. These bars are slightly off of the popular geometry, and somehow that makes them feel great. While I've bought newer bars from other brands in the past few years, I keep coming back to these. The 38mm rise version comes stock at 760mm... perfect and pretty standard. But the combo of upsweep/backsweep is just in the sweetspot for my kind of riding; big jumps drops and corners (Pacifica, CA). I can pull up off the lip nicely, as well as dump into deep berms and it just feels the most natural balance with my 150/160mm bike.

The gold is still shiny and new! But their logo cracked and peeled off. Can't have everything.

I actually never knew they were custom butted. Not knocking the product obviously! Just knocking their branding/communication.

Good bars!

The Good:

They have the perfect rise you need to keep the bike in control, while the length keeps stability on shore!

The Bad:

They are a bit heavy.

Overall Review:

These are good handlebars for the price, the rise and length provide comfort and control on many situations, if they would be a bit lighter, they would be great!

Great Bar for all occasions

The Good:

The great part for me is the rise and the color....I ride these bars on a dirt jump bike, my steel 29er AND my fixed gear road bike...they are really a jack of all trades.

The Bad:

No bad for me.

Overall Review:

Great bar, nice and light, great value!
