The Union- Insight: Nowear Candybars

candybars1

I’m sure Pepi Winder (R.I.P) would have had a go on a set of these; The Union just posted an Insight feature on these wild looking bars from Karl Hinkley’s brand ‘Nowear‘ dubbed the Candybars.  You’d be forgiven for thinking these were flatland specific, infact they’re suitable for ramp and street use and are handmade in the U.S. by Standard Byke Co…. ’nuff said really. They come in 8.5″ or 9″ rise, both of which come with a modest width of 28″, 10-degrees of backsweep and 2-degrees of upsweep. Head over to The Union for the full scoop and how to get a set if you’re into them.
