If you don't want to spend hours poking around for the perfect bar, and simply want a solid, light do-it-all bar at a reasonable price, save yourself the hassle and just pick up Race Face's 3/4in Turbine Riser Bar.
The Turbine's ergonomics have been well thought-out. The bar places you roughly 19mm higher for a commanding position on technical terrain. The nine-degree rearward and six-degree upward sweep ratings are in the sweet spot for the vast majority of riders, as is the 725mm width. The Turbine's cold-drawn, seamless 7050 aluminum construction shaves weight into the 290-gram realm. This is around two ounces more than carbon alternatives, or a shot of your favorite brown water, and when you consider the top-shelf bottle that the difference in price will buy, Race Face's Turbine becomes a stellar value. To make sure you get back to the trailhead first, butting and a shot-peened finish ensure strength by reducing stress risers, without adding unnecessary heft.
