Ethic Almasty bars were designed for the serious intermediate or pro park rider. These bars are tall and wide. Available in 3 heights ranging from 24.4 inches to 28.4 inches, there is a bar size for every riders but the youngest. We have been surprised by Ethic's reluctance in prior years to move away from the archaic ICS 10 compression and into current times but they finally have! The Almasty bars are finally HIC compatible and SCS compatible if you purchase an oversized SCS bar adapter, moving them back up to the top of our "must have" list.
Almasty bars are 28.4" tall by 23.6" wide. Pro scooter bars that are 28-29.99" Tall were designed for a select few riders who are either very tall or true pro riders. As a general rule, scooter bars should sit around waist height when standing on the deck. Ethic Almasty bars are 22-23.99" Wide. Although bar height and width are highly influenced by personal preference, as a general rule, bar width should be similar to the rider's shoulder width.
Ethic Almasty bars are a Y-Bar that Ethic designed for park and street riding. Your riding style determines the bar material that you should purchase: aluminum, steel, or titanium. Steel scooter bars are the choice of many street riders due to their durablity. The weld on a steel bar is much more durable than the weld of an aluminum bar and, as such, usually carries a 90 day warranty vs the standard 30 day warranty on an aluminum bar. If you just want a bar that is going to last, the Almasty bars is the bar for you. Scooter compression plays a very important role in deciding which pro scooter bar to buy. The Ethic HIC bars come standard with a slit and are compatible with the following types of compression: HIC,TCS, SCS - with purchase of SCS adapter
