To enter a new realm of weight reduction, Race Face pushed the Next
Riser Handlebar's diameter to 35mm. The added 3mm allowed Race Face to
reduce unnecessary material, which not only means less weight, but
better dampening too.
Constructed from a unidirectional carbon fiber, which incorporates a
composite leading edge for increased strength, the Next Riser weighs a
feathery 180 grams at its full 760mm width. Those specs place the Next
at the top of the carbon-bar food chain, but that's not the only reason:
Ergonomics plays a big part too.
Rightfully, Race Face specs an eight-degree rearward and five-degree
upward sweep to place your hands where they need to be for maximum
comfort and control. The Race Face Next Riser Handlebar comes in two
rises, either 10mm or 20mm, and in the color Black.
- Unidirectional carbon fiber construction
- 10 or 20mm rise
- 8 degree rearward and five-degree upward sweep
