Next Riser 35mm Handlebar

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

    Bar upgrade

    I've put it through the wringer
    True to size

    First, my bike is portly, so I wanted to swap a few parts to lighten up the front end. These bars fit the bill perfectly. I immediately noticed how they were stiff in technical sections that required a large amount of handlebar input, yet had a nice give on big drops. Good fit and finish as well. (I received the bars and did not have time to put them on. In the meantime, I did a face-plant and dinged my old bars. Glad I was too busy to install!)

    Great bar

    I've put it through the wringer

    The Bar with stood a crash for me that bent the uppers on a Fox 36. I was impressed. 35mm diameter and 760mm width is all I will ever want! it is also super light, I love it.

    Broke on the First Day of Riding

    I've put it through the wringer

    One of the worst things that could happen to you while riding is breaking a handlebar when you're 20 miles into the forest. The handlebars are just not as durable as the other brands, it just seems brittle. Could be the inferior quality of carbon that they use. I tried to get a replacement from raceface but they flat out denied my claim so i needed to shell out more $$$ just to get another handlebar.

    Whoa. Did you put the bar into the ground? A tree? What was the scenario?

    I did crash, but i didnt think it was a hard one where it should break the handlebar.

    Where did your bar break? Possible you overtightened anything when installing it? Seems odd, I have the 31.8 next carbons on my hardtail and the 35 Next's on my trail bike and both have taken a major beating.

    Once you go 35mm...

    I've put it through the wringer

    We switched from 31.8 to the 35mm clamp size and nothing has tightened up the front of the bike like this. I never realized there was an innate amount of flex in the old set up (particularly in the stem) until making this switch. Now my XC bike feels like a road bike with an integrated bar/stem combo. Its most apparent when you go back to your old bike. If you use a bike computer mount that clamps the bar near the stem, be warned - it won't work on this setup.

    The Bar Fly mount will fit a 35mm near stem. Check it out

    Great for the Roubion

    I've put it through the wringer

    I put these on my Juliana Roubion about 3 months ago which is generally getting ridden 2 to 4 times a week. No major crashes in their history to review, but so far they are working out great.

    How much abuse can these bars sustain? Are they fit for all mountain, or are they only recommended for more XC / trail riding? Thanks,

    Pedro, These are pretty stout bars and they can handle the abuse of Enduro riding for sure, I know a couple that I ride with that use them for other things besides XC and they hold up very well. This is an Awesome bar for everything you are going to be getting into. If you need any additional help or have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact me duirectly at ececala@backcountry.com. Thanks, Enrico
