Spank's Spoon bar feels pretty comfy, with a five-degree upsweep and an 8.5-degree backsweep, although it did take a bit of fiddling to get the position of this high-rise (40mm) version right.
We left the bar at its full 740mm width – wide enough for throwing the bike around on jumps. The Spoon benefits from Spank’s Extreme Gradual Tapering, which makes it stiff yet forgiving, and keeps weight down. It comes in five colours.
