RANT NSIXTY 4PC BARS REVIEW

3.0 rating

Rant makes lower quality parts at a really affordable price. The NSixty Bars are just that. While they don’t have all of the bells and whistles of other bars, they come in at a really good price. With 3 color options, these are a nice upgrade for any mid-level rider.

G: Rise: 9″, 9.5″

Riding a tall rise, will give you more leverage on the bike. Making it easier to pull back and lift the front wheel up.

You don’t want to have a rise that is too tall though. A rise that is too tall will make tricks harder to do.

H: Width: 28.75″

This is a medium width.

Narrow bars make barspins easier.

Wide bars give you more control and stability when steering.

I: Backsweep: 12º

What does backsweep do?

As far as I know, there is a sweet spot for backsweep. Too much will make the bike feel weird, and too little will make the bike unstable. It seems like the sweet spot is around 11º to 12º. If you need something a little more aggressive and straight feeling, go for 10º, but only do this if 11º is uncomfortable.

J: Upsweep: 1º

What does upsweep do?

There is a lot of discussion about 1º upsweep vs. 4º upsweep. Some people are running experiments and testing if the greater upsweep will make drops feel better. It seems like a lot of street riders run 4º to 5º upsweep. This helps for wrist pain and lessens the impact of big drops.

Conclusion

If you are a street rider and you love 4pc. bars, but you can’t really afford the 60-70 bars… These are a good choice. The 28.75 width will make barspins feel comfortable. However, the Rant bars are made from standard chromoly tubing, meaning the chromoly is a little weaker than the Sanko heat-treated chromoly.
