Description

Leverage.

While carbon has become the choice for top-end component manufacturers across the enduro scene, we often still find ourselves gravitating toward alloy bars for gravity riding. TruVativ's Descendant DH Handlebar illustrates the reasons why: since we prefer wide bars for the short stems and slack head tubes of gravity rigs, leverage becomes a serious issue.

Wide bars make for more responsive steering and more confidence in corners and across huge terrain; however, when they stretch out to the Descendant DH's massive 800mm, flex can undo those gains. Since it's made from 7050-series aluminum alloy, the Descendant DH stays stiff even when you're torquing hard on the bars, maintaining the wide-bar gains by avoiding the mushiness of other 760mm+ 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 DH is even wider than the Boobar, better suiting it to today's more aggressive courses, bikes, and riding styles.

  • A handlebar suited for today's aggressive DH courses
  • Stiff, reliable aluminum construction keeps handling sharp
  • Extra-wide body lets you cut it to taste or ride as-is

800mm of Alloy Goodness

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This bar is a solid contender and my bar of choice when running a Truvativ stem ( you gotta be all matchy matchy ). Super stiff, offering loads of control with minimal flex, but not too stiff like some of the 35mm diameter offerings.

Great Bar

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

If you are looking for an inexpensive DH bar, this is the one. It is really strong and relatively light. It looks great too. It would be a great bar if building up a trail bike or dh bike.
