So Jerry, what set up are we going with? UMI or did you see something else, I want it for CC racing and offshore for the RXT.

My UMI steering shipped today. Thanks Richard!!!
I'll take plenty of pics and let you guy's know how i like it. Im hoping for a weight savings too.
Time to put the RXP on a diet

What is the whole deal with the UMI steering? It is strictly weight savings? Please excuss my ignorance on this subject.

It's also a more vertical angle, way more efficient, natural and comfortable.
Jerry you're getting a fat head for tappered bars or the regular model?

11 insults so many people...now he is calling Jerry a "fat head"

I feel left out. No one insults me and i have the slowest ski on this board. Anyway i like the look and fee of the UMI bars. The angle is definetly more natural. The stock bars are meant for sitting down. I'm just not sure how safe i would feel big wave jumping out in the ocean with all that shiny aluminum right there in my face.

I kinda worded it to sound stupid, guess it works.
I love UMI fat heads because they allow tappered bars that lower the impact point between the steering assy and my face of about 2 or 3 inches since they have no crossbar.
Also tapered bars allow simpler, more effective padding that bolts right on the head and are just made out of tube, no aggressive angles like crossbars brackets have.
And Renthal red anodized bars matching boweyes and pissers look sleek and cool too...
