Finding the perfect handlebar is like falling in love — you'll probably have to try for a while before you find the right match. If you're lucky, though you'll go head over heels for the Riser 740 Team Handlebar from 3T. It's a versatile, lightweight bar designed to suit XC, all-mountain, and long-distance riders, with a medium-sized 740mm width, relatively large nine-degree backsweep, and 30mm rise that provides nearly perfect weight distribution for aggressive climbing and confident descending.
It can be cut down to 680mm if you prefer narrower bars, but the stock 740mm provides 264mm of width on either side of the bulge, so you'll have plenty of room for mounting brake levers, shifters, grips, dropper remotes, and other gadgetry. The Riser Team checks in at a svelte 185g, thanks to its race-ready carbon construction.
