SixPack Racing Millenium XXL Bars

Wayne Tabernor sent me these bars to run and run I did, straight to my mate Ryan Corbyn. Ever tried to take a picture of a pair of handlebars? It's hard as Ken propping them in the bath for a point and shoot session.

Good job Ryan is better than me with the snapper as you can see here.. SixPack Millenium XXL Handlebars.Photos by Ryan Corbyn

Bars are bars I hear you say! Well we can't really argue with that can we. As long as they are made of 7075-T6 double butted alloy that is. Then the trend these days is wide on your pride and 760mm should keep all you broad shouldered riders out there happy.

There is also now two new inventions on the market called a hacksaw and a pipe cutter for those of you that moan about wide bars. Better to make them wide and then cut them down isn't it?

Remember kids, measure twice, cut once!

SixPack Millenium XXL handlebars.

Rise on these puppies is 25mm which will suit many though the hardcore racers amongst you are looking at sub 20mm I hear. The 9 degree backsweep is absolutely spot on along with the 5 degree upsweep.

For all you beer drinkers out there

 Bigburd Wide bars are more stable and accurate. To illustrate the point, try riding a rowdy trail with your hands next to the stem. As you're picking yourself up from the yardsale you just had, admit it, wider is better. It is true that some people may have bikes that don't fit them, causing the wide bars to be awkward. Even so the wide bars will still allow better line accuracy etc.

 I think he's talking more along the lines of small people (12-14 year olds) running wide bars because they see other people running them and think it will make them better riders. Its ridiculous when you see someone running bars 2 inches wider than their shoulders.

 hacksaw and pipe cutter bit was so on point! i never understood why it took so long for super wide bars to catch on! after all cut em if there too long!

 what is it with peoples obsession with bars that are so wide ? i see so many kids with huge bars that are far to wide for them as they cant keep their chins from thier stems.

 leverage is key but I agree some guys look like they're getting crucified on the way down..that or they look like they're turning a bus
  • + 2
 lol 800mm bars, even pros dont run that wide
  • + 4
 i just find wide bars keep you more stable and easier to rail berms and what not
  • + 1
 for sure, but theres a limit
  • + 1
 yes stryke, they do!! bigger bars are A LOT more stable aty hight speeds, with way more accurate steering.
  • + 1
 im saying you cant need that much stability.. 800mm is like turning a truck especially considering peoples average size, why not just tighten your headset up too much or something?

for instance, most of the top wc guys run under 745mm, and most of them are 6'3+
  • + 1
 guys are running it moto-style. I've been on a CR with 800 Renthals but it's got a motor and much bigger ergos to deal with..gotta agree w/stryke
  • + 0
 i ride 800s on motos too, but they weigh alot more and have a motor like you said i think 750mm is about as wide as anyone needs, and i dont see why companies need to release 800s for push bikes
  • + 2
 great suspension is lost when your arms and shoulders are locked-out! haha! Oh well..to each his own.

 hey if you ever ridin a dirtbike, it'll change your perspective, anyways like the man said hacksaw or pipe cutter.

 iv got 800's on my bike.

 i think really wide bars are overrated. i've ridden wide and i've ridden short. my bars are about 27" at the moment and i'd probably enjoy a 30" again (although on tighter courses, i'm much faster with shorter bars) but that's the limit. unless you're 7' tall you don't need wider than 30" bars. if you honestly need wider than a 30" bar in order to maneuver your bike, cut your bars and pick up some weights.
  • + 1
 i dunno dude i used to run narrower bars on my slayer than on my rmx and i can shred them pretty much equally well but the rmx is just a bit better for cornering i find its super driftable with the wider bars plus your racing in ontario and our runs arent very tight
  • + 2
 personal preference i guess. you're tall and skinny and wide bars make sense on your huge bike. unless you are really tall though, you don't need really wide bars.
  • + 1
 yeah i guess so
  • + 1
 people focus too much on the whole shoulder to bar width thing. Think about the proportions of the actual bike, wider bars allow you to weight your bike more effectively in corners, along with opening up your shoulders helping with impact. Watch sam hill ride and his body positioning and technique, wouldn't work with skinny bars.

 if companys produce 800mm bars it makes them more suited to a wider range of riders. thus increasing there sales! , think about it , it takes what? 5 minutes to cut 25mm from each end of the bar. wont kill you!

 SixPack Millenium XXL Handlebar looks very nice, but the thing that they have only 31,8mm diameter on DH bar`s is very stupid
  • + 1
 Er, what? Only 31.8? 31.8 is the oversize standard already lol
  • + 1

  • + 4

  • + 1
