FIEND TEAM BARS – REVIEW

Fiend Team Bars = legit legit legit. The Fiend team depend on these bad boys for all the super gnarly, super progressive riding they do. As I said, legit.

Garrett Reynolds started Fiend in 2011. Garrett Reynolds. X-Games gold medalist every year, Simple Session winner every time, absolute legend boss of street riding every day. His video parts have probably melted more minds than any other, he’s just unstoppable.

“Nice feel, simple looks, solid enough for Fiend’s team of savages.”

Fiend forms the outlet of that kind of riding – the perfect blend of super technical skill and brutal gnarly massive big-balls riding. As Brian Tunney once said, the Fiend crew may very well nibble a one-foot-high ledge but they’ll also truck off the roof next to it. Fiend’s success as a BMX brand has been carried purely by amazing bike riding – exactly as it should be. Zero gimmicks, pretty much no marketing, just a solid crew of riders who absolutely slay the world of BMX riding on a regular basis.

Let’s have a look at these bars, then. Nice geometry here – 12º backsweep and 1º upsweep. As Fiend say, tried and true sweeps. We agree. The Team Bars feel spot on, with a nice shape and a comfortable arm position.

The manufacturing of the Fiend Team Bars is as you’d expect: full 4130 chromoly, heat treated and butted to save a bit of weight. They are solid, too. Designed with the Fiend team in mind, they have to be! Fiend say they can withstand most anything that can be thrown at them – these are trustworthy handlebars…

They come in a range of sizes, so most riders should be suited. From 8.5” to 9” rises, all sizes share the 12º and 2º sweeps, but the higher bars have a little extra width. They’re balanced.

The Team Bars are a nicely made set of bars. Nice feel, simple looks, solid enough for Fiend’s team of savages. Done.


RRP: £69.99
