I haven't been able to find much information on how mich rise your handlebars should have. What does having more or less rise actually do?
Has anyone tried bars with 35mm of rise?

It's a feel thing for most people. I don't think there is a definitive answer to how much rise you 'should' have, just ride what feels good. I've almost always ran a 30mm rise handlebar, with the exception of using 20mm a couple of times. I'm using a Truvativ Stevie Smith Blackbox handlebar now and love it.

I ride a 760 raceface atlas stealth with 13mm rise.
Would preferred a 780 or 800 wide one, but have a lot of tight trails with trees that makes it easier with 760
