Smile Snapped bars

8klm into a ride today and I hit a rock that threw the front wheel out from under me. End result bars snapped and a sore body. They are standard from new, anyone seen this before? Any suggestions for direct replacement would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance


Edit: rider error caused breakage

That is rather impressive. Your group sounds a lot like mine,gona be a lot of ribbing about that

I think I would get some pro tapers

Man those bars look very thin walled. My stock Hebo bars have very thick walls and even had to drill them to put hand guards on.

If I need to replace them I think I'll be looking in to Pro Tapers.
