    DH Bars

    No... not drinking bars or pubs, SMT.

    I'm starting to (slowly) build a DH Race Rig.

    I was curious on which bars were strong yet light enough for DH Race... I do not plan on buying new bars every year because of bar material fatigue. I want something Light, Strong and durable. Btw, Low Rise

    I was looking at the Sunline V-One. What do you think of it?

    Also willing to check out some for the same price range..

    Did you mean to write "light yet strong enough"?
    The Sunline's are very nice; comfortable sweep and rise. I'm also running Easton Monkey DH Carbons which are cool but a bit more pricey.

    I've soiled the pair of CNT's we have at our shop with drool... Very nice bars and a pretty good bend on them. (Used to hate Easton's bends.) I put them on the scale; 230 grams! I want!

    $139? Damn...

    310grams... I want lighter, so the V-One suits me good..

    50 grams difference... not much, but I'm trying to save up as much as I can.

    And sorry I didn't mean a DH Pub where you watch DH movies and drink Pabst.

    Deity Dirty Thirty

    /end thread


    Having tried both the V-one and dirty thirty. The Thirty is my personal choice, at 298 grams (my scale came in at 290) its super sick, super wide, and super sexy.
