Thanks for the A.H.I.S. System....It works!
Just a quick thank you for your product, the AHIS Handlebar mount system.

As a 55 year old "A" rider I've been having trouble with my hands going numb and just a general feeling of my hands, arms and shoulders getting beat up in chopping conditions. I ride a 2016 Beta 390RR and have been generally happy with the bike except in choppy riding conditions. I've had been looking into Flex Bars and Twisted Engineering carbon fibre bars. After researching AHIS I decided to give it a try based on the weight and cost savings over the other options.

I mounted the bumpers in the rear position (soft) and have one ride on them. I was amazed at how it works. A planned 40km ride in choppy conditions turned into a 55km ride and my hands, arms and shoulders felt great. I also found that the system made my front suspension feel a little better and gave me the confidence to push a little harder.

Finally a better solution exists!
I have been using Fasstco Flexx Bars for over 5 years and have always found them to have good dampening.  There have been some trade-offs however as they are significantly heavier than stock bars, they limit your hand guard options and the two-way dampening has always felt a little unnatural.  I have also researched and read reviews about other bar mounts and bars with built-in suspension but they all seem to be compromised in some way.  I don’t want my bars to move in every direction!

I am happy to report the AHIS system addresses all of these issues and now I can run any bars and handguards.  I had almost forgotten how much lighter my stock bars were.  As a pro racer nearing 40 I try to find every advantage I can.  Small things can make a huge difference over the course of a 3 hour race. Having a little extra flex helps keep arm pump in check and less swing weight up top is noticeable in tight single track.  The AHIS design is really clever and the clamps seem to be very durable.  They have taken some big hits and a few hard crashes without a hitch.  I am still on the fence on which dampening profile I prefer (forward or rear mount).  Nice to have options and they are easy to switch around.  
Thank you AHIS for some creative engineering!

Moab Test
I got the AHIS installed on my Beta 300 and then spent a  week in Moab.  I think it made a big difference for my hands/forearms.  On past trips, the so called "slickrock" and constant rock hits really took a toll on me, especially on spring trips when I haven't ridden much over the winter.  I didn't even notice the AHIS was there,  but didn't wake up with locked up fingers/forearms.  They also survived a couple of hard drops no problem.  Lightweight and fully functional design!

A manager responded to this review
Thanks for the review! One of things about AHIS is that you don't usually notice it working, but it is. Occasionally, you might feel it bottom out on a large hit or jump, then you really know it saved you since it absorbed the impact and not your hands and arms. As you have mentioned, you really know its doing its stuff when you don't feel as fatigued or sore a the end of a ride or you manage to ride faster with more confidence.

Sure Smoothes Things Out
Thought I would share this with you. Haven't ridden my KTM since last year's Anthill (last August) due to injury. First ride this year would be the Beagle Bash (April). Was prepared for a very sore Monday after the race as usually my hands and arms would take a beating. In preparation for the race I had a set of AHIS installed on the bike. In short , the race came and went without a hitch. Felt really good about the ride and my bike. Bryan came up to me after the race and asked how things had gone? It was then I realized how well things really had gone. No arm pump, only one small blister, and no two stroke bar buzz. Hard root hits and braking bumps didn't seem to bother me as before. Must have been the AHIS. Have since ridden and for sure it smoothes things out.

AHIS Definitely Reduces Arm and Wrist Fatigue
They definitely reduce arm and wrist fatigue.
I have broken Scaphoid (Navicular) bone in my right wrist, that is now arthritic, so I am very sensitive to sharp impacts while riding.  
The AHIS mounts work well at not transferring sharp impacts to my wrists.

11 Day Hardcore Adventure
I just spend eleven days down in Utah riding the toughest trails we could find with Everstoked Adventures, it was an epic trip. AHIS totally save me, I suffer from arm pump and pains in my wrist and shoulders, the AHIS saved me from the hard hits and even cut down on my overall fatigue.

I like it!
I was suffering from numb hands around 10 mins into fast rides. AHIS has much improved the comfort level without sacrificing any feel. They help absorb unexpected hits and allow me to go faster for longer. Great support from Bryan. I highly recommend giving them a try.

AHIS on My Beta 350rr
Well I have to say that after the first ride with the AHIS on my bike I'm very impressed.
Worked great ,my wrists and hands were way better than they have been in years. Couldn't even tell they were there, just worked without any other side effects.
Well worth the investment in my opinion.

Great job!

Long Term Test
I installed the AHIS isolators in February of 2018 on a Beta XTrainer. I was having problems with my left wrist which had been injured years ago. Riding multiple days was becoming a problem even if I taped the wrist. I now have 6269km and 154 hours on the units. They have performed well and with no problems. The good news is I can now do multiple days and no wrist taping. In April of 2018 I rode 5 out of 6 days in Moab. Then InAugust of 2018 I rode 9 out of 13 days in the Calabogie area on Ontario. And then 6 out of 7 days in Presidio Texas and Mexico  the last week of December. Topped that off with another 6 out of 7 the last week of January this year. They work for me I hope everyone has as good of luck as I have. It hasn't cured the wrist but it lets me ride.

Skipped the Chiropractor
I have been out 4 or 5 times since I installed the AHIS ( Advanced Handlebar Isolation System) on my Yamaha YZ.

We ride a lot of nasty rock, roots and log infested single track in Simcoe County. Before your system I needed to go to the chiropractor after almost every ride and I have noticed a huge difference (lack of soreness) in my neck, shoulders and arms after a ride, it really is amazing. I drove past my chiropractor and thought I haven’t been there in more than a month! Your system really does make a huge improvement.

I have attached some photos of my install, followed the directions and it was easy.

Thank You!

Pins and Needles Gone
Hey Bryan

Got my AHIS, man they look amazing top job on design and after my first ride my pins and needles had 90 percent gone. I road for 1 hour without any trouble when before I would get P/N within 15 minutes and had to ride one handed giving one hand a rest dangerous and a quit literally a pain.

I have been playing with the  adjustments screws to get it just right, but without really knowing what I was doing regarding settings mate I love them already,

So with a bit more riding and seeing where the best setting is for me, it can only get better. Mate I would just like to say thanks so much for giving an old rider more time to play in the sun doing what he loves without anymore pain.

The boys are really impressed with how they work so expect more orders from over here in Australia .

With many thanks Paul.
