Used these for a few rides now and have bounced the bars off a couple trees and branches and They have protected my hands every time so far. Very rigid for not being full wrap around bark busters. Easy to install. I installed under mount style and it works great. Great flex back design to avoid snapping them off. Very pleased.

I bought these from a local mx shop about 2 weeks ago for my 2015 KTM 125sx (Tapered handlebar-7/8in-1 1/8in). I have taken these on the track twice since then. They have held up well and were extremely easy to install. all you need is a set of Allen keys. I have always had full wrap around bark busters prior to these, my reason for switching over is that one of my buddies I ride with compound fractured both of his wrist in a accident with bark busters where his hands slid under the bark busters.
These guards did well on the track and decent on the trail. I have raced hare scrambles with these, and as long as your not wide open flying into a tree these will give you enough coverage from brush and large branches.
If you are installing these onto a KTM the only thing you should know is that you might need to rotate the clutch and break perch up a tad. I installed these under the clutch/break perch assembly.
They look great and work great! The decals didn't stay on very long so I just took them off and it looks really good!
Got these for xc racing. Thought being metal that theyou might last....
I was wrong! Broke the cheap little plastic bar off that holds the gaudience on. Also bent broke the cheap bolts off of the other side.
Great fit, light weight, easy to adjust, just wish they were built a little bit more enforcement up front, but altimitly they do what there sopose to do
Only got to ride with the handguards one time. Feel over in a corner (very low speed easy fall) boom they are bent. May have just landed on them just right, but either way they are bent after just one ride.
We were a bit disappointed with the distance that the guards sit off the bars. This may be due to the fact that they are on a crf70f and not a bigger machine, ultimately not a big deal. They have protected his hands so far and that is truly what matters. The only other disappointment is that both stickers are coming off in the exact same fashion. I will have to try to get some adhesive on them so that they don't continue to come off.
Was very Happy with the quality of the product, easy to install and looks like it will take some hard knocks and still hold up. Would highly recommend this for anyone looking to protect your hands from roost or the occasional tree branch that comes out to say hello!
