Why We Build It
Our HLN 835AL bar was born from the effort and process of creating our 835C carbon bars.
Achieving the ride quality, precision, and comfort we wanted in our carbon bars required a great deal of learning on our part; and subsequently, multiple combinations of clamp diameter, tube shape, rise, shape, upsweep, and back sweep. To vary and test those parameters in carbon requires costly (and time consuming) molds to be created. So, we began the testing process with Aluminum to help us zero in on the design attributes we needed.
By the time we were ready to create the carbon bar, we'd already created an aluminum bar that we loved! So, what choice did we have? We decided to launch it as the HLN 835AL so that our friends could ride it too!
Whether it's the 35mm clamp diameter, which allows us greater ability to change wall thickness, or the gradual bend (both of which greatly improve ride quality); or if it is the 9º backsweep and 4º upsweep, which provide comfortable ergonomics while still offering flexibility in terms of bar-roll/cockpit set-up...Every detail of our HLN 835AL handlebar has been thoroughly considered.
All so you don't have to think about anything other than shredding your favorite trails with confidence, comfort, and precision.
All RideFast handlebars are protected by our 2 year warranty as well as our Crash Replacement Plan which provides no-questions-asked, replacement at a 50% discount (from current published retail pricing) for damage not covered by our warranty.
