Great Bar, Great Price from Iconic Brand

Rating: Featured Member Review
The Good:

Wide, lite, strong, very little flex (if any), clean graphics, rise options

The Bad:

more color options would be great

Overall Review:

Love this bar! Was looking for something with a low rise and a bigger width, but didn't have the money to drop on the more expensive Atlas or Turbine models. When I got the bar I was a tad skeptical if it would live up the Race Face name for the low price; I am not skeptical anymore. The width is great; not crazy wide, but not XC skinny and the low rise is a perfect feel and position. The width opens up the cockpit a bit and feels great for turns. The added width gives some good added leverage to get up and over things. The bars are strong and lite and I have never felt any flex in them whatsoever. I wouldn't definitely recommend these to riders on a budget or anyone not worried about color options. I would say though that I would definitely throw down a few dollars more on this bar if
