Australian Mountain Bike - - Between The Tape -

The Ride Wide En­duro bar from Burgtec is de­vel­oped off the back of its strong and well proven (think Santa Cruz Syn­di­cate) Ride Wide Down­hill bar. The Ride Wide En­duro bar is also be­ing used by Josh Bryce­land on the En­duro World Series Cir­cuit where his skills are putting it though con­di­tions no me­chan­i­cal test jig could ever hope to do. The Ride Wide En­duro has a 35mm bar clamp and when mated to the Burgtec MK2 stem of­fers an ex­tremally stiff and di­rect setup. Our set came in at 760mm wide with a 20mm rise, 9-de­gree back sweep and 5-de­gree up­sweep. Com­ing off a bar with less of an up­sweep it took a about half an hour to get used to the Burgtec’s. Once used to the up­sweep it was ob­vi­ous that this setup is de­signed to go fast and it de­liv­ers an in­cred­i­bly stiff com­bi­na­tion of bar and stem. Us­ing the stiff 35mm clamp al­lows a rider to re­po­si­tion the bike on tech­ni­cal trails with ease and pre­cise con­trol.
