Designed in-house at Bassi Bikes/C&L Cycles in Quebec, Canada, the new Bassi Bobby Bar is a relaxed alt-bar that’s equal parts sweeepy, cruisy, and shreddy. According to Bassi, it offers great all-day comfort without sacrificing off-road control, and the long grip areas provide options to move your hands around on long rides.
The Bobby Bar was designed by Bassi’s own Roberto, and the production version will feature graphics from Julia Vallera, an artist/designer based in Vermont. The bar is made from 7075-T6 aluminum and is 780mm wide with 25mm rise, 30° backsweep, and a 31.8mm stem clamp. They designed the centre width to the bends to be the same as a large handlebar bag such as the Atwater Atelier Marauder, but it should work well with pretty much any type of handlebar bag setup.
The Bassi Bobby bar comes in black or polished silver and costs $75 CAD ($55 USD). As a heads up, it’s not officially MTB rated, so don’t get too wild. Head over to ClCycle.ca to grab one for yourself.
