FLi XXL Ltd edition 760mm wide Bar made by Reverse.

Since Sam Hill started doing wide spaced press ups everyone is jumping on the wide bar boat and these are no exception. What I will say is even those these said 760mm wide on them, when I measured them they came up 765mm, an extra bonus!FLi XXL Ltd edition 760mm wide Bar made by Reverse.

You are going to have to be quick to grab hold of these beauties as there will be an initial limited run of 50 bars only.

Of course there are the obligatory measuring markers at each end to ensure that you cut them down equally. Nicely finished off in either black or white you really can’t go wrong with these. Especially as they are in a super low 20mm rise which keeps the pilot controls low.

Remember riser bars came in to raise the front end in the days when we were riding the Manitou Mach series with 2/3” of travel. Now we are running 6-8” forks and were running the same bars? Crazy!

Vital stats are:

760mm wide.
31.8mm clamp.
20mm with a9 degree sweep.
Available in white or black

RRP is £49.99 U.K Sterling.

 And for those who like the comfort of carbon (lol !) ONZA is producing a super stiff 710 mm. wide raw carbon in a 20 super low rise, 31.8 mm. .... bullet proof and super good looking.

 2 inch rise would be nice though...i wont buy a low bar like that. what if you were putting it on your street bike...you still want a super slammed front? sounds stupid to me.

 Loved the Manitou Mach. Riding styles have developed into a more upright position over the years. Maybe there are a few gorillas out there looking for a more upright posture.

 I don't know how tall you are dude, but I'm 6'1", with an extra long reach, so I'd love a pair of these. Also, Gravity is making a bar for '08 that is 800mm wide, or 31.5". I got to hold it at Expocycle in Montreal this year. It was awesome.
