Deity Black Label Bar

Nine degrees back and five degrees up is just fine

You know that feeling you get when something just feels right? Well that’s exactly what we thought on our first ride out with these Deity Black Label Bars a few years back. When a bar feels this good from the off you just know it’s a keeper. And the brand is the choice of so many great riders….and Brendan Fairclough. Haha.

“When a bar feels this good from the off, you know it’s a keeper”

Dimensions are personal issues and as bars have crept up to 780mm and beyond it’s easy to trim them to a width that suits. Sweep up and back is fixed, but feel and control can only be tweaked with bar rotation or maybe a stem swap. None of this is needed with the Deity Blacklabel… just fit and forget.

It’s a well-finished aluminium bar, especially as it comes in just shy of £60. At 787mm it will suit most riders for technical trail through to harder downhill use, possibly a touch wide for some and a light trim may be in order. They follow the popular nine degree back and five degree up sweep measurements and that’s just fine with us. Rise options are now 15, 25 or 38mm, better than before

.

Ride quality is reassuringly solid yet never too jarring, (something we are experiencing with 35mm bar and stem combos) possibly helped by Deity’s new ‘Gradient butting’ 7075 T6 aluminium which they say increases both strength and stiffness, with no sacrifices.

Deity offers plenty of colours too… the two-tone bead blast and anodized finish is durable and available in four bold colours as well as a stealthy black. We love these bars.
