With the trend toward zero stack headsets and flat bars its refreshing to see a gravity oriented bar with a higher rise introduced. Renthal, famous for their sturdy moto bars, is releasing this 30 mm rise bar due to what they view as a “a swing back towards higher rise bars on the Downhill World Cup circuit.” This trend they claim is a result of steeper courses, frames with shorter head tubes, and lower stack headsets.
The new bar adds a 30mm rise to their existing 10, 20, and 38 mm line up. All bars are 780mm wide, have a 5 degrees upsweep, and a 7 degrees backsweep. Weights from 345. MSRP is $85 USD.
Unfortunately, the bars are only available in the “AluGold” pictured.
