Santa Cruz is probably best known for its top-tier, trail shredding, full carbon mountain sleds that enjoy dream-bike status in many a rider's heart. What you may not know is that the company is now exporting its expertise in carbon layup to the component side of the spectrum, including the Santa Cruz Carbon 800 Riser Bar.
Built to withstand the abuse of gravity but with the lighter weight of an all-mountain bar, the 800 is a stellar addition to any hard riding whip. It provides excellent stiffness for snappy control while soaking up vibrations to reduce fatigue so you can confidently navigate the most technical runs. As an added touch, stealthy logos make for clean lines and classy look while offering a hint of Santa Cruz status to fellow trail goers.
Please note that the Santa Cruz Carbon 800 Riser Bar has a maximum clamp width of 60mm, which is not compatible with most direct-mount stems.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This handlebar came stock on my Bronson. Typically I replace whatever handlebar comes stock on a new bike with something I know I love. Wanting to get a feel for how this handlebar fared in comparison to some of my favorites I figured I'd try it for a few rides. It's still on my bike and isn't going anywhere. The damping is excellent helping to reduce fatigue from tail feedback. It is also light weight and stiff without being too stiff. Honestly this handlebar was a pleasant surprise. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great carbon handlebar to complement their Santa Cruz.
