Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous - General Positive Overview -
I figured there weren't any real "up-to-date" reviews about these Handlebars, so, I thought I would do my own review and extensive heavy testing. Here are the results and what you can expect if you purchase these Bars:
Me: 6"2, 195 lbs // Bike: SC Heckler // Style: DH, AM, FR.
(Hanging up my PRO Series Signed Handlebar by the Atherton family. Wanted to test out 800mm Width, highest gone before was 750mm)
Test: Jumps, Abusing, Stiffness Test, more Abuse.
KORE Torsion -
+ Extremely Low/More than reasonable Priced Handlebars
+ Wide Range of Colors
+ Standard Ergonomics (Sweep, etc)
+ 800mm?! For this price?!
+ Extremely Solid/Stiff. Very Low Flex.
+ Properties of "2x Butted & Heat Treated '2014-T6' Aluminum": STRONGER than 6016-T6 Alu. Strength is PRETTY close to the highest strength and "expensive" Aluminum Series, 7075.
- Paint is close to mediocre. Expect clamp area to scratch and any other "pressure" contact points. Other than that, paint will generally stay on. It's not like you can scratch off the paint with your nails, but chips more easily. Expected with price.
- Weight is expected in the price-range/material.
- Nothing else major or big disadvantage.
Bottom Line: Great handlebars at a very low price. Quite surprising to say the least. I bought mine for only $30 + $10 Shipping. The handlebar is very stiff and WILL be able to take on a great deal of abuse. If you like just general strength and reliability, this bar is for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Great bar, shit paint
Great feeling bar, 800mm is mental but gives you plenty of room to customise. the only bad thing is the paint is terrible, just scratched off most of the centre logo (and therefore the centering marks) by gently nipping the stem and rotating them to get the sweep right, you can peel it off with a finger nail. very disappointing because they look really good but i cant see the paint lasting very long. maybe get the shot peened ones instead.
