Rox 2 Pivot Risers for 1 1/8 Handlebars
Worthy upgrade for my Triumph Tiger
The stock handlebar positioning on my 2015 Triumph Tiger 800 XCX had me leaning over just a little too far while standing and reaching ever so slightly from a seated position.
While standing it placed too much weight on the front wheel while navigating through loose material (sand and gravel). When seated, I became fatigued in the seat far sooner than I should have. (Rhomboid pain)
The ROX risers proved to be just the fix I needed. The simple, effective design made for an easy install. Final adjustments were a breeze and soon I was riding safer and more comfortably. More weight is to the rear, or neutral while standing and now the bars are comfortably within reach from a seated position with elbows slightly bent.
I highly recommend these risers.

ROX for a Griso
I bought these for my 2014 Griso, they brought the bars up and slightly back. This is quality product and American made. No disappointments. As usual Revzilla delivers on all expectations.

Overall a great product, exactly what my Super Tenere needed. Handle bars are in a much more comfortable position. It did introduce a bit more vibration. I would also consider the higher priced anti vibration risers.

Being 6'3", I needed to raise the bars on my 2014 Triumph Tiger 800XC. I was getting pains between the shoulder blades and standing up for off-road riding was a challenge. These risers installed easily and put the bars right where I needed them. The stock cables worked fine.

These take the pressure off my wrist that would sideline me after 30 minutes of riding. The only reason I gave a 3 in the installation category is because you need to install longer clutch and brake lines (its own level of pain on the clutch side). I also love the threaded ends on the lower mounts that can hold ram ball mounts.

Improved long distance comfort.
They were very easy to fit, even for someone with little knowledge in adding accessories to their bike (i.e. me). I had to take off the right hand panels on my Tiger 800 XC in order to slightly re-route the clutch cable, to free up a bit of slack, but that wasn't a problem. For a video tutorial on how to fit them to a Tiger, search for Muddy Sump on youtube. He has lots of great tips.

Best Bar Risers!
I installed the 2" Rox Risers on my 2015 Triumph Tiger XCx. The quality black finish looks great with the black handlebars (its nice that there is a choice of finishes with the Rox Risers). They look to be super sturdy.
I like that the angle is adjustable. However, be aware that if the bolts on your handlebar clamps are hex head bolts, you can only access either the front or the rear bolts at the same time, since the risers will cover whichever set you are not tightening. This limits the range of angles, but I had no problem adjusting the angle so that it worked for me.
These make a huge difference when you are standing up on the foot pegs for off road riding.

2014 Triumph Explorer 1200 install tips
So, my Rox risers came in the mail today. I installed them following the Altrider U tube video. The install was not too difficult. Im meticulous so it took me an hour to get the comfortable setup. My clutch cable was tight even after moving the hydraulic clutch master cylinder toward the middle of the bars. So, I read that some folks routed their clutch line behind the ignition barrel to get more slack. Problem solved. My riding position is much more comfortable sitting (my shoulders are not rolled forward near as much) and standing (easy reach to the bars. Not leaning over anymore). Btw I'm 5'10", 160lbs, 31" inseam with longer arms. if that helps. Definitely recommend these risers.
