What is the general consensus on their products? I see quite a bit of reviews on their rims, but no reviews on their bars.
I'm interested in putting a set of their 9.25 bars on my Stolen Saint, but haven't been able to find any reviews on them.

Thanks for the reply. I've have looked at others, The only reason I was considering the Alienation bars is the because they're the only ones that have a 9.25 bar available in blue.

They’re made in the same factory as most other Taiwanese made bars. They’ll be fine & certainly an upgrade from the stock handlebars on that bike.

If you’re riding excessively hard or have an issue with breaking bars, then maybe look into something stronger. Otherwise I say go for it!

Alienation used to be everywhere on mid-range complete bikes. The only thing I really like them for is decent quality rims at super cheap prices, but they're still best for budget builds.

I like their rims, that’s the only experience I’ve had with their products. Blacksheep in the rear and the Skylark up front.

But as said above, a lot come from the same factory. I’d say it’ll be fine.

They got a tubeless system that looks interesting

Tubeless Bmx seems like a no win. You’d have to carry an entire spare tube when out street riding verses a tiny patch kit.

I had a pair of the 9.25s. Loved them until I found they were bent about 8mos later. Maybe the bike landed on them on a big bail that would bend any bars, maybe they're just weak and bent from regular use.
Pros: light, pretty, good geo, feel good on the bike
Cons: found out they were bent 8mos later while changing my stem.
Long story short, I won't buy them again. If you're not riding that heavy, they may hold or if you just need some nice bars to get you through for a bit they may be practical.

So much less likely to get a flat though.

Thanks for all the input guys. I really wanted to do a little retro look to my bike, so I thought blue bars and 24"blue tuff wheels. Unfortunately you cant get 24" tuff wheels with a 9 tooth cassette, so I nixed the whole idea.
I was down at sc action sports last week and picked up a pair of snafu Jackson bars along with a new seat post and front sprocket. all in the jet fuel flavor.
