This Holzfeller handlebar from SRAM’s Truvativ stable is a comfy 730mm (28.7in) wide and is available in 20mm, 30mm (tested), 40mm and 50mm rises. It has a nine-degree backsweep and five-degree upsweep, and is made from butted AL-7050 alloy.
Although the width felt good on our trail bikes, we’d have liked it to be a bit wider for downhill use. You can always cut it down – it's marked to cut, which is handy, and has alignment markings at the stem clamp area. The Holzfeller is stiff and those comfy angles help get you into a decent attacking position on the bike
