While AltRider lower crash bars guard your engine from trail damage, add additional protection to the front fairings and radiator of your F 850 GS with a set of AltRider upper crash bars. The upper crash bars make a perfect spot to mount auxiliary lights on, keeping them far above the ground and out of harm’s way.
The AltRider single-piece upper crash bars utilize specially designed metal clamps to mount to the lower crash bars – creating one seamless crash bar system that’s built to last. Because the lower bars are now tied together with the upper crash bars, impacts are distributed evenly throughout the entire system.
The upper crash bars are mandrel-bent from 1 inch (25.4 mm) stainless steel tubing and hand-TIG welded in the USA. They are the only bars on the market created with 5-axis CNC laser coping at the joints. The bars are available in shot peen satin silver or rugged powder coat black finish. The stainless steel is extremely resistant to rust and weathering, no matter how rough the conditions.
