In this 11th installment of Rick's Reviews, WingStuff.com's President and Founder Rick Arnoldo shares his insights on the LST Horizon Adjustable Handlebars by HeliBars.
About the product:
HeliBars® Horizon™ LST (Luxury Sport Touring) multi adjustable handlebars are made for Honda F6B & GL1800 Goldwing (all years 2001-onwards)
The most comfortable handlebar design in the world is also the best performance upgrade for all GL1800 / F6B front forks.
This is because the stock handlebars suffer from a high degree of flexing and to make matters worse, the left and right bars flex independently of each other. What is felt as a flexing fork is actually the handlebars flexing between the rider's hands and their mounts on the top triple clamp.
HeliBars' customers have verified these findings and HeliBars has now compiled a huge amount of feedback and keep hearing the same comments over and over:
"My bike handles so much better now."
"Handling at low and high speeds is vastly improved."
"I ride with a higher degree of confidence now."
"My trike feels like I have power steering."
"My bike feels 300 pounds lighter now."
The Horizon LST eliminates that "rubbery" handlebar feeling due to it's rigid, investment cast A-356-T6 aluminum alloy risers and robust interconnected cross bar design. The left and right side grip tubes are now rigidly connected to each other and the forks, providing dramatically improved handling with reduced effort. The Horizon also provides many safety features should you forget to fully tighten any of the pivots after making an adjustment.
Luxury sport touring has never been this good, and because they're completely adjustable you can find your own personal sweet spot. So whether you've spent a fortune on your front forks or they're completely stock, cure the real handling problem at the source.
Prove to yourself that they're not exaggerating, and enjoy the best ride of your life!
