Truvativ BooBar riser bar £67.99

Wideboy downhill bars

BikeRadar score 2.5/5

Named after SRAM’s product manager Jeremiah Boobar, these ultra wide 780mm downhill handlebars are made from butted 7050 aluminium, and they feature a seven-degree backsweep and a five-degree upsweep.

Available in 20mm and 30mm rises, the bar weighs in at 290g and uses a 31.8mm clamping area, which forms into a huge bulge at the bend before tapering to a regular 25.4mm.

The area for your controls is impressively large, offering scope for even the fussiest brake setups, or trimming the bars. The curve is reasonably comfortable and the bar is super-stiff, allowing good leverage.
