I'm using the OneUp carbon in 35 mm rise, but it totally depends on your bike, the geometry you wants etc.
Awesome bars btw

Yeah I'm running a Firebird 29 so I think the 35mm would be a better fit for how aggressive the bike is.

770mm Spank Spike 35 Vibrocores on my Voltage. I'll probably end up going to 760 (5'9 fpr reference)

it's official.

5' 9.5/10" average shoulders, fills some M shirts and not others.
normal arm span (= height)

740mm on mtb mtb
540mm on commuter mtb bike (cut the bars down so that cars are less likely to kill me)

I’m 6’4” with a 6’9” wingspan.

The best width I’ve had was a 840mm Whisky No 9 bar, but it was flexy as hell and not rated for more than light trail duty.

The 820mm RF SixC bars were OK, but as a tall guy 35mm of rise isn’t really enough given how all the XL frames have only 10mm more stack than the M frames.

I’ve got a set of ENVE M9 50mm bars which are 810mm and I’m hoping the extra rise makes up for the lack of width. But it’s been snowing since I put them on so who knows.

800mm on the large 2020 giant reign 29er and 780mm on the dirtjumper, I'm 6'2" been running full 800mm wide bars since I started racing DH in 2008
