Default Arm Pump Eliminator

     

I was looking through products that are available to my store and came across an arm pump eliminator. I suffer from arm pump quite a bit (I know it has a little to do with my suspension as well), but was wondering if anyone has used this arm pump eliminator by Nuetech. It changes the ergos of the end of the bar (you have to cut an inch off). Anybody have any experience with this product? Any input is greatly appreciated.

Although I have not heard of these bars, it sounds Hokey. Manufacturers will sometimes come out with crap that has no advantages what so ever,just to make $ and I have never seen any type of awesome results with these types of products in my 16 years of riding. I think the best way to get rid of arm pump is to workout those forearms with push-ups or rolling a 5lbs dumbbell back and forth on the floor or in your hands. I was just reading the Transworld, and they had some arm pump gloves they did a review on. They really did not benefit any of the riders, except they had curved fingers instead of typical straight ones.

I also found alot of ride time during a day of riding gets rid of my arm pump as well. I will get it at the beginning of the riding session, then it gradually decreases and fades with breaks in between rides/moto's. Potassium also keeps the blood flowing through your muscles, eat bananas or take supplements. I don't like banana's anymore so I take the vitamins.

But as far as you having a store to sell items, you would be surprised at what people will buy!

They are not bars, it is actually a throttle tube and it requires you to cut off a little of the end of your bar, so that it can curve. I don't know if it really works or not either?? I think you may be correct, but I've been tempted to try one for $100.

The premise doesnt seem right. How can rocking your hands out at the pinky eliminate the restriction in your forearms caused by grasping hard for long periods of time.

I sure wish there was a product that actually worked. Have not rode since last week of Oct and went out yesterday and could not hang on, tried relaxing but it just kept getting worse, took me all of putting in slow laps to losen up and be able to hang on. I also started lifting weights last week, that may have had something to do with it, but either way, a pill or a spray would just be awesome
