Over 10 years ago, S&M started making their own bars by hand in their Santa Ana, CA shop because they weren't pleased with the other offerings out there. Their Slam XLT bars are nice and wide at 28 inches, with a 3/4-inch crossbar and an 8-inch rise. And at 1.7 pounds, they're nice and light, too. This width helps you get more leverage coming out of the gate, while jumpers and street riders like the extra stability it brings in the air. They're made from butted 100% heat-treated chromoly for serious durability and the clamping area is deeply knurled. Set 'em and forget 'em.
I got these bars and bent them to a -10' downsweep.
they were great bars though after a few months of hitting the local trails. these bars weigh approx. 27oz. if your a weight weenie dont get them. if you want a bar that rides nice. go for these or any other S&M bars.
p.s. i cracked a rim when i had these bars if that changed anything
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
