Powerlites are the best bar ever made.

I recall there being some British park shredder who was riding them in the early 00's. Anyone remember who that was?  He was in Props videos, contests, etc.

Could have been Jerry Galley, Scott Malyon, Stuart King or one of those boys, everyone seemed to have them for a while.

Might be thinking of Marv too, those lot I listed above are maybe late 90's.

Upped cause he was probably the last person to ride those gash bars.



Kind of close but I imagine it'd be impossible to get the look of the powerlite bars with while retaining today's sizes.

You guys remember the Powerlite bars that hand the bend in the grip? They felt great.

From memory those seem like much more backsweep than the current outlier.

You can't deny that the only reason anyone rocks 4-piece bars today is directly because of Bob.

I'd be tempted to run a set for a little bit of extra clearance in certain places for flat, if I could get sub-8" ones that were the right shape

Some thoughts on 4 piece bars.

I find it very strange that even flatlanders don't ride sub 8 bars anymore and they like it wide! So bizarre.

Looks like Bob is getting his own bars made?
