WHY MAKE THIS PART?
One day I was thinking how most riders have adult sized bodies and we are riding a BMX bike designed for children. I designed some 8.5”, 9”, and 9.5” tall prototype bars. I’m 6’1” tall, I tested the 9.5” bars and the instant I rode them it felt so good. I had so much control over the bike I could make it do whatever I want. So we decided to produce these!
HOW IS THIS PART DESIGNED SO THAT IT SOLVES THOSE ISSUES?
AND WHAT OTHER IMPOVEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE?
As bikes get lighter and lighter bigger bars have becoming more popular. Taller and wider bars slow down the movements made by the rider which makes the bike feel more stable and in control, while at the same time giving the rider more leverage to throw the bike around.
Moto bars have a large 2.5”/70mm radius at the grip bend and at the stem making these the strongest bars compared to other major brands in our laboratory tests.
The handlebars are internally threaded on the ends for use with Tree barends that thread directly into the bars and stay put. But can be used with all other barends too.
The bars have cut marks every 5mm as guide for cutting the bars down in width.
