Mountain bike handlebar rise. What is it and how does it impact your ride? In this video, Jeff covers everything you could ever want to know about handlebar rise which includes flat, medium-rise, and of course, high rise as well as how to find the right bar height for you. We also cover the relationship between the handlebar and the number of stem spacers which in turn, affect the overall stack height. Because handlebars are one of the main contact points between you and the bike, it’s crucial that you find a handlebar rise that is a good fit for your bike and riding style. If you are a rider more focused on climbing, then you may want a flat or relatively low riser bar. On the opposite end, if downhill is your forte, then a handlebar with a higher rise like 20mm, 30mm, or even 40mm rise would be for you. More importantly, it can help alleviate back pain and keep you on the bike for longer periods of time. And at the end of the day, isn’t that what we all want?
