Strengths:    Awesome value, strong and durable, and looks cool!

Weaknesses:    None!

Bottom Line:   
This is simple: the Sun/Ringlé Inferno XC riser bar is a tremendous value. It's extremely lightweight (for this price range), it's strong and stiff, and is dirt cheap! Plus it looks cool (love the flames)! Looking for a decent riser bar that doesn't weigh 2 lbs.? Get this handlebar and be happy. I love mine.

Bottom Line:   
Light weight bar that feels pretty good and only has a 1" rise which kick the monkey's butt for the riding I do, I like to XC race, but I also tear up singletrack on the same bike so i like the extra width and little bit of a rise...oh did i mention it only weighs 190 grams! thats less then some flat bars ive ridden

Giant 890 ATX riser/bar mods.

This is an odd question, here it is. Back in 1996, I built a shiny new custom Tomac 890, but shortly after, I was no longer able to race, so it sat, shiny and new, in my garage, for 17 years. It is still like new with less than 50, gentle poser kms on it. My back has never fully recovered, but havin ... Read More »

Flat bar or riser?

I notice a growing trend of flat bars coming stock on bikes. I typically choose a low riser bar. Is there an advantage to going flat that I'm not aware of? Weigh in please, flat vs riser.Read More »

However I'm doing a 24hr in May and worrying about neck/shoulder pain in the second half of the race. I'm thinking that if I put a riser bar with a riser stem on then it'd giv ... Read More »
