Hixon IC SL Bar/Stem 40mm Actual Weight
April 22, 2019
Light & Unique Integrated Bar/.Stem
- I've used it several times
Being that I was among three employees to buy the exact same SB150 (color, build, & size), I figured I'd give my new bike a bit of unique bling and drop some weight in the process. These were the solution and they really are pretty neat. I've only got about 7 rides in on them, but have survived a week of desert riding and here are my initial thoughts. - They are pretty dang light. With a claimed weight of 290g (for the 50mm version), the 40mm clocked in at 271 grams. What I figured is the best comparison is to look at this vs an Enve M6 Bar /Stem combo as they offer it in a 40mm stem length and 780mm width bars also. They clock in at 85g and 190g respectively, for a total of 275g. For a 271g actual vs 275 claimed weight, the difference of 4g is nothing to me. - If they weigh roughly the same, it brings about the question of price - the Hixon costs $329 vs the Enve bar/stem combo being a stout $450, Though the Hixon bar is not a cheap options, it is a clear winner in terms of price when looking at a comparable alternative. - There is a downside of not being able to adjust the roll to your liking. It worked out that they fit me great and are close to what the original bar/stem came with the Yeti. Not a downside for me, but could be for some folks. I'll post a photo of what it looks like with a "normal bar/stem combo" put on top of it for reference. - I feel like I shouldn't have to say this, but use a torque wrench, for your own good. Only two bolts on the entire thing, make sure they're clamped securely and to the proper torque spec. - Stiffness of the bar feels pretty on par with other carbon bars and all mountain stems (ie a bit wider of a face plate). 780mm width is ideal for an all mountain bike and the 40mm is pretty short, but feels great on the longer reach of the SB150. Its not a total game changer and it is expensive, but its also pretty dang cool. Sort of makes it seem like a hammerhead shark is riding around on the front of the bike. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a way to drop a touch of weight and have people ask you why your bars look the way they do while out riding.
