Flat Bar or XC Deuss Riser bar

Its kinda personal preference.

I like the shape (rise & sweep) of risers more than flat bars.

But then I had to invert my stem & remove spacers below the stem to drop the bars down.

My mate on the same bike is sticking to his flats.


Risers lift you up a bit and are supposed to offer a bit more control because of their width

Flats drop you down for a more aggressive position (XC racer)


Theoretically, you could achieve the same postion with spacers and stem orientation.

the rise is not that important cause you can get the same rise using a spacer and a flat bar.

what will change is going from a 66cm riser bar to a 58cm flat bar.

the flat bar will quicken your steering, sometimes make the bike a bit twitchy.

the wider bar is a bit forgiving..

change it and try it..
