After bending multiple pairs of Pro Taper Contour bars (FMX application) I was told to try Tag T2 bars. They are the first bars I have owned that have stayed straight long enough to let me change them over on bikes (Sold my old bike and took these bars with me for my new one). I have had quite a few hard crashes on these and they haven't shown any signs of fatigue or stress. I have the nitride colour and it hasn't rubbed off and shown silver anywhere. The Tag logo has scratched off a little bit but that's to be expected on any bar. I will always buy Tag bars from now on!
