The AX Lightness Riser Bar is the culmination of what the German company learned after cranking out very successful versions of its Hera and Poseidon handlebars. With progressive ergonomics and its precision pedigree from the factory in Bavaria, the Riser Bar is gladly up to all of your XC, trail, and all mountain challenges. The Riser is made of premium quality unidirectional carbon fiber. The bar is internally butted to whittle out all unnecessary grams, resulting in the bar's incredibly low weight. Stiffness is high, vibration transmission is low, and its strength is uncompromised, evidenced by its industry beating durability test results and multiple World Cup victories on punishing circuits. Keep in mind, the bar's rider weight limit is 220lb.
