I’ve always used aluminum based handguards but after purchasing a nice new lightweight 350 SXF for aggressive trail riding I didn’t want the added weight. Honestly, if I hit something hard enough to bend these I will not be anywhere near the bike afterward anyway. These are well build and strong. Plus lighter weight and easier to install by more easily confirming to the bar. ...and less expensive to boot—- win, win, win.

cycra handguards - mounts, make for a easy installation and provides plenty of protection for your hands!
Very straightforward design...all plastic (composite) construction. I needed larger diameter washers for the bar end mount than what came with the kit. The guards I used were mounted on my Renthal bars and my triple clamp. I've only had a minor washout accident since these have been installed...they held up to that impact just perfectly. I'm not sure they would protect quite as well as Cyra's aluminum guards but I like that these will not bend and need to be "straightened" out after minor to medium wrecks. I think these are ideal for fast trial riders...maybe not outright racing pace.
These hand guards look great on the bike and do a decent job for bush wacking. However, installing these guards on the bike took hours because of the poor fit. I had to heat up and bend the right guard so it wouldn't cause my throttle to stick. If I could do it over I would buy the aluminum guards for more strength and durability. So beware buyer.
Perfect product for gncc or xc racer, considering these don't only act as handguards, also bark busters.
I have had these hand guards on my YZ250R for 2+ years and they've out-lived 3 sets of bars. They have always taken the abuse of hare scrambles, enduro and woods riding here in Northern California. Light weight and they don't bend, I am very satisfied overall with this product from Cycra!
Used this product in JNCC Race. 1st crash was on gravel road and the right side of the hand guard held up and got scratched.
2nd crash was in rocks on the left side and the guard actually cracked where the bolt goes into the handlebar.
Also cracked where the bolt goes in to secure the guard closer to the cross-pad.
I have been using the acerbies rally guards for years and I now prefer the Cycra composite guards over any aluminum guard, The composite guards are very durable and when the aluminum guards tend to get bent after a few years use or less depending on how much they are actually needed, the composite gaurds retain the shape regadless of how they are abused, I used to have to reshape my alluminum guards from time to time, The Cycra composite never needs reshaping. The mounting is simple and the triple clamp mounting is the best. They are designed to move up or down when fully tight, this is actually a plus as this avoids further damage, just a firm tap up or down to put them back in desired position is all that is needed, I used to not like this feature but it is quick and simple and as handy as levers that fold back to avoid breaking, and much better than having to remove alluminum guards to bend back in place. Excellent product and have installed on all my bikes, Thanxs Cycra for a great product.
