Rapide Flat vs Rizer handlebar

I am really interested in this flat bar from Rapide: https://www.rapide.co.za/product/rapide-controlstick-760-9-flat-bars/

 

But, they have been out of stock for a while now and I suppose when they're in stock again the price fill go up.

 

Now the question is, what difference will this rizer bar make for XC/marathon riding?

I have a Cannondale Scalpel  (Size XL) with a 1.5" steerer / stem.

My choices for stems are thus limited to Cannondale stems which are pricey 

Wanted to lift my cockpit a bit.

Got a 38mm  Rapidé SkyRize-R 780 Bar

It was really a cheap solution for me and feels really nice :thumbup:

My drop from saddle to bar is now about 4cm less

The bar is 120g heavier that the carbon bar I took off, but so nice looking and  stiff  - so no big issue with the few extra grams

Highly recommended

I have been looking at the Lyne bars, but there is a couple of other items I also want to order from Rapide. I would like to place one order and wait for one courier.

After some calculation and thought, I think the Rizer bar would actually suite me better than the flat bar.
