TAG XT-1 OVERSIZED BRACED HANDLEBARS
-Use 1-1/8″ handlebar clamps
-Patented anti-vibration elastomer absorbs up to 40% more vibration than any other handlebar.
-Aerospace grade aluminum.
-Shot peened finish adds a compressive outer layer for maximum durability.
-Laser etched positioning grid.
WHAT WE LIKE
-Very strong and held up to a lot of abuse.
-Well made and comes with a bar pad.
-Variety of bends will please most riders.
-While more rigid feeling than non-crossbar oversized bars, some riders preferred the added track feedback through the bars.
-Elastomer does reduce vibration, while still allowing the bar to feel rigid.
-Black color is clean and factory-looking.
WHAT WE DIDN’T LIKE
-Some testers complained that in spite of the elastomer inside the bars, they were still just as stiff as Renthal Twinwall bars—some of the most rigid bars on the market.
-If your bike doesn’t already come with oversized bars stock, you’ll need to purchase new bar clamps.
WHAT WE REALLY THINK
These bars might not be for everyone, but they get the job done and will stand up to anything. While they might still be a little rigid and stiff for some riders, other riders who like the added feedback and rigid feel with love these bars.
