Go lighter, faster, and stronger.
Pick up the Renthal Fatbar Lite for the sturdy feel and extra leverage afforded by 740-millimeter wide bars, all without adding extra weight to your favorite trail or Enduro-race bike. In fact, the Renthal Fatbar Lite only weighs 270-grams, making it one of the lightest aluminum riser bars on the market. And because it's constructed of 7000-series aluminum, the Fatbar Lite provides high levels of stiffness and strength at a much more palatable price than carbon.

I did not buy these on C. Cyclist but I still want to review them.
Great bars. I've had 2 heavy crashes: one on my maiden ride and 2nd ride. I did not crash because of the bars though. Point is: they are tough and are crash proven.
Regarding the rise, I bought the 30mm ones. I used to have 760mm with 13mm rise and I like the feeling on these better. More precise on technical terrain and overall makes the bike a bit more playful. I ride AM mainly.
Color wise, when I was looking for bars, I did not want to get the renthal's because they had no color option. I was convinced on getting them and it turns out the color is great. A very neutral goldish tone that will pair well with most bikes. If you are unsure of the color don't worry about it, unless your bike is all bling bling.
