Manufactured from high grade 7075 aluminium and featuring a shot-peened finish to maximise fatigue resistance, Nukeproof Warhead Riser bars deliver buzz-taming comfort through the roughest of terrain while still maintaining the strength to absorb the toughest of spills and impacts.
Built for the rigours of DH competition but light enough for AM and technical trail use – just 298g for 760mm X 31.8mm model - the iconic Warhead Riser range is available in multiple sizes and configurations to suit individual rider preferences, physiologies and riding styles.
NEW for 2013 is the option of a super-oversize 35mm diameter clamp area for improved stiffness-to-weight ratio (31.8mm OS standard also available); while a 38mm high-rise option is aimed at taller riders or those who prefer a more upright position in combination with a low-stack headset setup (20mm/medium-rise standard also available).
A 9° back-sweep and 6° up-sweep ensures optimum ergonomics for long-term comfort, while for confident handling and precision steering through steep technical switchbacks we’ve made 760mm our ‘standard’ width (800mm option available for larger riders/ those who prefer the extra leverage provided by an ultra-wide bar). Still not satisfied? No problem – all Warhead Risers feature incremental markings to enable cutting down to your own preference.
Featuring all-new graphics for 2013 and available in black, silver or Nukeproof yellow finishes.
Nukeproof Warhead 760 Flat Bars Features:
Decals: Full colour heat transfer decals, new graphics for 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 Stable control!
I switched from a Token carbon riser with a KCNC 90mm stem to a Warhead bar and Warhead 60 mm stem - what a difference in stiffness and predictability! My bike tracks better and the whole combination feels great.
The yellow is slightly darker than what the picture shows but it is still a nice shade. Brilliant quality paintwork and graphics! The bar certainly catches the attention of other riders.
The rise and sweep angles are great and exactly what I needed to change my posture to a more upright position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wango nice stiff wide bars at a good weight
really nice wide bars. I'd happily use these for fr, at the moment I'm using them for xc as I like a wide setup and they have a real nice natural fit. I'm 6.2.

Quality bars, nice width for control but not too bring that your clipping trail-side trees and obstacles. A nice sweet spot in width and practicality

Rated 3 out of 5 by wasabijim Silver Bar
the silver finish on the bar I received is disappointing. Its like they got the paint and coating process wrong. There's clear discolourations and textual differentiations in the paint's finish, especially at bends in the bar. Also it doesn't take much to mark the paint. This was very apparent early so despite taking extra care, by the time I got it into the stem and the controls on, it was covered in a mess of dark marks.
Performance, price, palm placement and feel are all spot on and its appearance from a distance OK. But I have to take points off for the poor finish of the the paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fox666 Nukeproof рулит!
После установки этого руля байк преобразился, руль широкий и стильный. По весу конечно не карбон, но вполне приемлемо. Байк стал управляться более уверенно, всё же широкий руль реально лучше в экстремальных дисциплинах. Покрытие качественное, думаю не обдерётся. По прочности - дерево покажет)))

Rated 5 out of 5 by joey67 better confidence
bought these bars 6 months ago 38 mm rise 460 width run with a race face respond stem. it has completely changed my riding. i got more confidence on the trails i'm more smoother and a lot faster and my riding is a lot more controlled in the ruff stuff and in the smooth sections and hitting the corners with better speed and control.

I'm very happy with these bars, you feel the difference straight away.
They improve the overall feel of the bike immensely, giving you more control and comfort.
Super light weight, looks awesome with the fresh new nukeproof graphics and feels great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Megadaz Excellent bars for the money
These bars are well worth the money. 760mm seems to be just right. Bars have a good finish and look good on the bike

Handlebar rise is very rider specific and largely down to personal preference.
A higher rise bar will move rider weight further back over the back and will potentially increase control while in the air.
The main benefit to a higher rise is when descending steep declines; control will have a lower sensitivity, decreasing the chance of over steering or going 'over the bars'.
However control is relative to many other factors as well as the bars; running high travel will generally perform better with a lower rise and keep the rider in a more neutral position; especially whilst climbing.
