Bars are starting to crack.. Need some help on which bars I should get to replace them.. I get that everyone has their preference, but up until now I've just gotten whatever bars I had available to me haha. I know the wider, the more leverage, and the higher, the easier it is on your back..

but as for backsweep/upsweep, not real sure in that department. Help me figure these things out! right now I'm riding Skavenger Swift bars with a ride of 8", width of 26.75", backsweep of 12° & upsweep of 2°


I'd prefer no smaller than them, but no taller than 9", width isn't an issue since I can always cut them down but I'd prefer no wider than 28"


I like 360ing off of high stuff, wallrides/wallride 180s, manuals/manual 180s, footjam whips, umm idk stuff like that. There's a set of Odyssey GY3 bars in at the shop I work for that are 8.66″ rise, 28″ wide, 12° backsweep & 4° upsweep

Do you guys think those would be okay for me? or is that too much upsweep? I'm not exactly sure about the sweeps, but can too much upsweep be a bad thing? I know more is easier on your wrists but yeah. Sorry for the long post haha

Tempting. I'll let you know, I can get the GY3s for about the same price since I get it cheaper. I'll see what everyone else says though first. Did you like the upsweep? I'm afraid it'll feel too awkward for some reason but I know my wrists will thank me

I haven't rode them. Lol. But lately I guess everyone loves 4 upsweep saying its better for their wrist.. I ride cult deathriws. I like them. The macs looks dialed af but too lazy to toss them on.

Fit Macs have a very nice geo.
I'm planning on switching my Fly Montana bars for some chrome vultus bars.
Tried both, they feel good.

Buy my Kink badgers : )

But I prefer bigger bars, the Sunday ones sound cool. I want to try something with more upsweep myself. I ride some Cult bars, I have no idea what ones or the size lol. I'm pretty sure they're leaders and like 8.5 by 29 and they're not bad or anything.

Never mind, even the headset is on sale now. You better get it before they're gone. They'll never be back again.

Vital really needs a multi-quote thing so I can quote everyone & not clutter the page haha.

But thanks for the input everyone, I think I'll get the GY3s. No one really had any complaints about the upsweep other than not being used to it, but that's expected since they're a different geo than what I have now. If I end up hating them I'll just sell them or post em up on here for sale. I'll see if I can ride them out front the shop though before I officially purchase them though.

I'll keep everyones suggestions in mind if I don't like them though. I can probably get Animal Presidentials from warranty, I'm just sketched out cause this is the second pair of Animal(Skavenger) Bars I cracked, Federals were mentioned too. I'll look into them, Standard as well. Might even see if I can get a custom pair made

The GY3's seem perfect for you to be honest.

Well, they are 28" so not too wide, under 9" so not too tall, and you seem to go big so the 4 Up will be good for your wrists. OK maybe not perfect but they seem to be what you're looking for.

Hmm good point. My wrists don't really hurt when I land, but in the back of my mind right before I land, I'm like fuuuuck this might hurt. Maybe it'll give me peace of mind.

I'll try and see if I like them. If not, I can always sell them I suppose.
