Maximum Safety & Comfort Handlebar Risers
Handlebar risers are an essential component of your bike setup for optimal safety, comfort and ergonomics while riding. To get the most of your time on your motorcycle, it’s crucial that you are as comfortable as possible when you’re in the driving seat. As we are all built differently, there is no one size fits all solution to ensure perfect positioning and alignment for all riders. Fitting the correct risers, however, allows you to modify your setup to ensure you are correctly positioned on your motorbike, giving you maximum comfort and control. Every riser made by moto-cnc uses top grade billet aluminium which is our core metal for the design and manufacture of our UK made handlebar risers.
There are a number of benefits riders can expect from fitting new risers, regardless of the make, model, style, or size. Risers are mostly about functionality and safety but the right choice can also improve the aesthetic of your motorcycle and bring some style to your ride. Depending on the type of risers you select, fitting them can completely change the way you ride, for the better!
Altering Your Handlebar Height
When you are sitting in an awkward position, putting stress on your joints, muscles and tendons, it takes its toll on your body over time. When you fit the right riser you will be able to reach your handlebars in a more natural position and enjoy a more comfortable ride as a result, you will notice the benefits. This simple customisation gives you the ability to ride for longer without having to stop to stretch out. You will also encounter fewer injuries over time as a result of poor posture.
Another huge factor riders must consider is safety, as we all need to do our part to keep the roads safe. When you are comfortable and have good posture, your eyes will automatically be in a more advantageous position. You will be less distracted by discomfort so you can pay attention to the road ahead, allowing for a safer and more enjoyable ride.
Types of Riser
Risers are available in primary categories; clip-on risers and street fighter straight conversions. Both options help to improve rider posture and comfort, creating an improved rider experience but there are some differences between the two variations.
Clip-On Handlebar Risers
The first variation of handlebar risers come in the form of a clip-on. These are extremely versatile and work to raise handlebars to the desired position. With a lot of sport and motocross bikes, clip-on's are used to give handlebars much more comfort and control while on the dirt. By elevating your handlebar to the perfect height, you will be able to push your skills to the limit and improve your performance significantly.
Street Fighter Straight Bar Conversion
This popular style of sports bike is known for its overly aggressive look. The Street Fighter style of handlebars is a very low-profile straight bar across the front of the bike. These allow the rider to get lower and to maintain excellent control over the motorcycle at all times. Conversion kits are available from 41 to 50-millimetres and can improve the feel, handling and performance of your motorbike considerably.
