Rated 4 out of 5 by Great XC bars I bought these for my 29er build in the sale. Great looking and well finished bars. Nice fit although on reflection a 710mm width would have been better. 27 February 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fairly lightweight, inexpensive flat bar I replaced my original Kona bar with this. It's everything the description says - very light weight for its price and build, not too wide for commuter use and the overall build quality is good. The colour selection is good also. 20 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tres bon Super matériaux a la fois léger et résistant, bon choix de couleur. 28 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by One of the very handle bars with 3 degrees backsweep I was searching for a while for an XC flat handlerbar with minimum backsweep. Once you go south of 5 degrees backsweep the choices are almost zero. Purchased this at a great price in black and 3 degrees backsweep combined with the Asnwer ROVE AM stem 100m and is a great looking and also cheap combo for my XC bike. 04 January 2014

Answer: 
8 degrees is the backsweep. That means the amount of "bend" towards the rider. As the item is FLAT is still the top one, just if you look from above you see a difference between 3 and 8 degrees backsweep

Answer: 
Este artículo es únicamente Flat Bar (Manillar Plano) y solo tiene la opción de 8 grados y 3 grados en curvatura interna. La otra opción con diferente altura la puedes encontrar en el siguiente link:

http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/...

De igual manera en la fotografía, el segundo y el tercer manillar corresponden a los manillares con altura y son de 13mm(1/2”) y 25mm(1”) correspondientemente mostradas en esta página.
Espero esto sea de ayuda.

Answers

Answer: 
Higher rise bars will provide a more upright position which will apply less pressure to the upper back and also offer a higher leverage rate whilst cornering/maneuvering.

The higher rise may aid your situation; however we cannot offer definitive potential medical advice as there could be any number of issues causing this pain aside from the handlebars.

Answers

Answer: 
I manubri sono tutti flat e sono come quelli nella foto allegata. Le opzioni 3° e 8° si riferiscono al backsweep ossia all'arretramento delle parti terminali del manubrio rispetto alla parte centrale del manubrio che si fissa all'attacco manubrio stesso.
