“We made these bars for Shaun because he wanted some bars with less backsweep than is currently available.(having run TTL bars for the last 3 or 4 years). Pretty much every bar on the market has 10-12 degree backsweep and 1-4 degree upsweep, which is pretty crazy given the massive variations a few short years ago.
These bars have 9 (IX) degree backsweep. Shaun wanted extra strong bars since he usually rides at a harsh concrete park and throws his bike rather than risking injury if it comes down to a choice. In order to compensate for this we opted for triple butting (Shaun originally wanted straight gauge initially but we thought that was overkill) and a higher (and thicker) than usual cross bar. The bars are ED Black so the knurling is free of excess paint. Look for these in stores early in 2012.”– Proper.
