Submitted by Nitro a Cross Country Rider from Northern Cal

Date Reviewed: February 25, 2007

Strengths:    Bulletproof for cross country use. This bar has seen several crashes, including a particarly nasty one in the demo forest, and has come away unscathed every time.

Weaknesses:    None noted.

Bottom Line:   
Stealth bulletproof bar. This review is for a 10 year old bar that has proven itself through many tumbles with a 175lb rider. Not sure about the newer bars but this one is a bit narrow.
