In A Glance

The SIXC series of carbon components has been very popular, always offering a combination of lightweight and strength. New for this year the 35mm diameter option allows them to shave material off the bar due to the added stiffness of the new size. This has resulted in a considerable reduction in the weight of the bar. It’s the lightest 800mm bar in the test which is some accolade considering the company it is keeping. Again the styling is such that the fat middle section is kept to a minimum so the bar looks fairly “normal” on your bike. On the trail the optimized flex in the bar removes small trail chatter while the torsional stiffness ensures a precise and reactive steering response. Made from unidirectional carbon a matt clear-coat has been applied on top to ensure a stealthy look. It can be shortened to 750mm if you desire and there are lines to help you trim it to your desired length. Available in black the bar is rated for all-mountain, downhill and enduro duties.

Race Face Atlas 35 Stem 50mm

In A Glance The Atlas range from Race Face has been synonymous with stiffness and strength for some time. The all-new Atlas 35 is designed to be used with the new 35mm diameter bars in their range. Whilst the stem is noticeably bigger than the standard 31.8 version it isn’t very much heavier as they have strived to remove the…

The Rally FR Elbow Pads from Race Face for 2012 have been trimmed down a little at the top of the guard over last years model. Like the matching knee and shin guards the workmanship is sublime and the pads ooze quality. There is plenty of padding behind the plastic armour and this ensures a very comfortable pad.

Race Face Rally FR Knee and Shin

The Rally FR Knee and Shin Guards from Race Face certainly look the part. Don’t worry you can get a much more mellow colour-way should you desire, but lets face it, they’ll all be brown soon enough! The pads are beautifully made with plenty of attention to detail, the padding behind the plastic armour is quite thick compared to some…
