ENVE Riser Handlebar $160.00
Finally, the dirtbags and weight weenies can agree on something.
These days, most serious XC riders and racers are using carbon fiber handlebars. Carbon bars are lightweight and extremely tough. The quality that really sets them apart, however, is their ability to absorb vibration. Constant vibration, either from the road or the trail, causes numbness and fatigue. Enve is setting a new standard for carbon fiber design. The Enve Riser Handlebar is a perfect example of how this relatively new company has changed the way that people think about carbon fiber. Strong enough for huge hits and giant drops, but still light enough for XC racers, the Riser Handlebar is a whole new level of handlebar performance.
The Riser Bar was developed by riders for riders. Utilizing extensive feedback from the trail, the Riser Bar design represents a perfect equilibrium between weight and strength. A mere 180 grams of impeccable carbon, the Riser Bar is light enough for big climbs, yet durable enough for catching big air. At the same time, the wide 27.5-inch-bar stance provides flexible comfort in the dirt, and the nine degree rearward sweep keeps your wrists in a relaxed, neutral position.
The Enve Riser Handlebar is available in a 700mm width. The Riser Bar features a nine-degree sweep and a 23mm rise. This bar is available in the color Black, and is only compatible with 31.8mm clamp diameter stems.

- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
Super bar, very light weight, the added width can really be felt when leaning into curves and wanting to maintain sure handed control, watch out in tight trees! Ergonomics feel comfortable, a great upgrade.
Strong, Light, Great Looking bar

I've had these on my s-works enduro for two weeks and roughly 100 miles now. They're excellent. They're wide, but not DH wide, making them perfect for tight trails (although I have caught a bar end once on a tight rock section). They're damp, light and so far bulletproof. They look great too.
the Enve website shows these bars to have...
the Enve website shows these bars to have 9' sweep back and 5' up with a 23mm rise. It also shows a 740mm (29" width).Are these bars different then the ones Enve normally sells?
Just got a pair so you may have moved on. ? Can confirm these come a full 740mm. Great addition to the sled.
Your data on the angles looks right too, so not sure what differs on the Enve site. Competitive is showing 700 in body copy but 740 in the spec sidebar. Cheers.
