When you're reaching for rise that will take you down chunky DH lines with total power and confidence, look no further than the Truvativ Descendant Carbon 35mm Handlebar. With a girthy 35mm stem, this bar takes stiffness to the next level that pairs perfectly with carbon fiber that has a knack for keeping things rigid while still managing to dampen harsh vibrations from the trail. Those of us who covet wide bars and short stems won't be disappointed by the whopping 800mm width of the Descendant, making for more responsive steering, and elevated confidence through corners.
Since stretching out a bar can have an adverse effect in losing the responsive gains, Truvativ opts to craft this bar from carbon fiber that elevates stiffness to keep you in control even when you're torquing hard on the bars. The bar's dimensions are the result of feedback from professionals and TruVativ's history of producing gravity kit like the Boobar—though we should note that the Descendant Carbon 35 is even wider than the Boobar, better suiting it to today's more aggressive courses, bikes, and riding styles.
