Nukeproof have been making great bars and stems for a while now and we are big fans of the alloy Warhead bar. Naturally we were eager to see what it was like in carbon! Sticking with the older standard of 31.8mm diameter the bars have been built with World Cup DH racing in mind. The bars are constructed using a 3k-carbon weave and then a unidirectional carbon is added on top. The decals are then put into place and a final topcoat is applied. A neat feature, unique to Nukeproof, is the inclusion of some 3m protective tape to keep your bars looking fresh! Keeping the classic geometry of the Warhead alloy bar meant we instantly felt at home with this set up and the 760mm width was perfect for the medium to smaller members of the test team. Comfortable to ride with a quick response to rider input left us feeling in control at all times.Buy Handlebars on

As is the way for gravity style pedals, these aim to give your foot a better platform while clipped in, combining the security of a clip, with the 'feel' of a…

His first mountain bike was a Trek 820, which he bought in 1990. It didn’t take him long to earn himself a trip to the hospital on it, and he’s never looked back since. These days he’s keeping it rubber side down, riding locally and overseas as much as possible.
