Climb like the wind.
With a relatively small amount of rise, Race Face's SIXC 10mm Rise Handlebar is made to help you conquer hills in less time than it takes you to descend them. At 35mm, it's also fully embracing the wider-is-stronger trend, so you can ride it as hard as you can without worrying about stress, bending, or breaking. By making it wider, Race Face was actually able to decrease the thickness of the carbon fiber used, so the bar is proportionally stronger and lighter than narrower bars made of the same material. The 10mm rise is all about XC riding, but it's plenty capable of handling descents and all-mountain rides, so go ahead and set it up on any non-DH bike in your quiver.

All the things that are good
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Wide, stiff, light, stylish. 35mm is a "standard" I can get behind. To be fair, there's not a "standard" I haven't fully embraced. Sure, you'll need a a new stem to accommodate the wider clamping area, but the added benefits are certainly worth it. Add to that Race Face's quality and durability and you can't lose.
