The Nukeproof Horizon Carbon Riser Bar was developed to be lightweight and comfortable, while far exceeding the strength and durability of an aluminium bar. In fact, the Horizon carbon bar far exceeds the strength of many leading carbon bar competitors in laboratory testing, withstanding loads of over 700kg.

High Strength and Damping This strength is due to the Nukeproof proprietary carbon layup and the addition of a unique layer of glass fibre for additional damping and reinforcement. Safety was the primary objective, in addition to providing the great ride quality only a high-end carbon bar can. Further safety is provided by the no-slip particle paint applied to the controls and stem mounting areas. Nukeproof are so confident in their Horizon carbon bar that they back it up with a lifetime warranty!

Anyone tested how nuke proof it is? My guess is keep the receipt.
no bike?

Nuke proof are very hard wearing and big in the MTB world, thus the name
Great bars for a stupidly low price delivered - excellent deal
I have straight bars...is this to give height or just a better feel?
Had this bar for around a year now, originally got the 800 but I've cut it down to 765,more manageable with a 35mm nukeproof neutron Am stem which is also a bargain. Think I only paid 40 for these bars as they were reduced to 50 and used the new customer discount code 10 off 50 spend sogot them for 40. Great setup, bars are light but not stupid light and they far stronger than alloy bars in the stress tests.

I'm currently researching what bars to fit on my cross country hardtail and these look just the job.
Awesome bars and awesome price!!!
Sign up for new customer add the bar and some rotor bolts for a pound and get a tenner off with new customer code NCV2019
I dont know if that will git my mtb, and if its even worth the upgrade

as long as your stem clamp diameter is 31.8mm then these will fit.

carbon is worth the upgrade for the weight savings and feel when riding.
Tempting price, but I just have this niggling feeling that I shouldn't trust carbon for a handlebar.
Am I going to be putting it in the microwave for some reason?

I was like you always had alloys bars but these bars are bombproof, twice the strength of the best alloy bars and been about 100 grams lighter, some carbon bars are flexy these are solid.

I have the race face next carbon bars and they took about 190 grams off the alloy bars they replaced. I managed to damage a pair that I decided I had to replace as a result of a direct hit with a wooden post (as I chuntered about fly tippers and wasn’t looking ahead) it had a horizontal crack in the bulkiest area of the bars but didn’t break , but can’t risk a crack like that, alloy would have bent no doubt

These have a lifetime warranty but they are super strong so I’d have no worries about using them.

You’ll not find photos of these broken online unlike Renthals.........
These aren't the newer 35s

Yeah 31.8mm the traditional sized bars, rather than the newer standard 35mm depth
Thanks for posting we have added your thread to the Highlights page
I used to have these on my bike as a kid i think, when i upgraded my Grifter
Any Iranians on here who can loan me a nuke for the weekend????

You think?

How bad was the nuke you witnessed?

Why not just ask a Briton? I assume you're already here, and you certainly speak the language. Or even an American. They've got loads of them over there.

I’ve just ordered a new MTB, would these be a good upgrade to get now? Or would I not notice much of a difference comparing my new bike to my old one?

As others have said they can be a great upgrade, not just for the weight saving but for the damping the vibrations (trail feedback).
I learnt while watching the Vuelta that riders still go for ali bars on account of if they crash and carbon bars snap it's game over..

The decent road bikes I’ve seen recently have got an aero carbon bar and stem combined.

Do carbon bars snap on drophandles?
Mtb carbon isn’t neccesarily built for lightweight , they are more for strength and dampening vibrations..

I recently did one of the climbs north of Madrid 1160metres on 11.5km road at a continuous 8-12%
Absolute grueller will stick to MTBing far more fun

How to suck the fun out of a comment...

The 12/25/38mm rise options are just for a higher riding position. There are other considerations such as backsweep/upsweep which relates to the wrist positioning. Biggest change though is the width. Wider gives more precise control but some will find too wide uncomfortable. Always better to go bigger as you can cut them down if you don’t like.
At least you no the handlebars will be fine if there’s a thermal nuclear explosion.

Probably need a fairly hefty safe to store your receipt in. Not too sure how the rest of the bike will cope with an atomic weapon going off in close proximity.

As nukeproof as anything can possibly get. Carbon doesn't melt, it only vaporises (sublimates) but at the highest temperature of any element - about 3,630 °C.

That said, the temperature at the core of a nuclear blast is a toasty 50 to 150 million degrees, so the general rule of thumb is, if you do see a nuclear blast, try to cycle round rather than go through the middle (even if it puts you off your pace a little)
