On-One calls the Mary handlebar an "extreme sweep riser bar". The long grip area has room for whatever controls you need and with grip sections angled at around 40 degrees, the grip centre span is similar to 'normal' bars. We know riders who love this radical back-sweep, and there's enough forward offset for you to use the same stem if you just fancy trying a Mary for a change. However, there are also times when you'll just long for the simplicity of a normal riser bar. Like On-One's Fleegle, the Mary is a tough bar offering a surprising amount of control on different types of terrain, but it takes a bit longer than the Fleegle to get the best out of it.
