Old thread I know, but why start another one.

I am looking for more info. regarding New Ultimate Evo riser and flat bar.

I know the riser had 9* bend, but how about the rise? Their website does not list this bar.

Has anyone have any experience with riser of flatbar?

Hi Chris,

My 700mm wide NU bar is 115g. Pretty good weight, great looks, don't notice anything about it in use... can't fault it really. Mads Koch on here seemed happy with his too and may chime in later. The only other light bar I could afford to look at is Mt Zoom and although the NU is a touch pricier it is also 10-15g lighter and better looking. Of course, MTB is all about looking good :oops: Both NU and Mt Zoom offer crash replacement discounts too which is also important IMO as you shouldn't race what you can't replace :D Since it is a flat bar, mounting the bar flat will be a 9 degree backsweep, but rotating it will use some of the sweep as upsweep and some as backsweep if that makes sense??? Separating upsweep and backsweep doesn't make much sense with a flat bar (with no offset clamp area)

I'm also looking at New Ultimate due to price/weight factor. I have a 9* Syntace in 580mm lenght at ~125g.

I was looking at the actual riser that r2-bike has listed in 1-14mm category, but how much is it really?

I have the flat bar, so am not sure on the riser of the riser bar:
http://r2-bike.com/New-Ultimate-Lenker- ... end-110g_1

R2 list the flat bar as 8 degrees but I believe it is 9 degrees having checked with NU (not that you'd notice 1 degree!)

A 12cm longer bar with the same sweep you already have will be a bit of a revelation I think :D Save 15g too! Why go for the riser rather than flat out of interest?

I would probably cut it to 640-660mm.

As much as I liked the 9* bend once I tried it years ago, I would like to try a riser on my xc bike for a change. I want 5-10mm rise only.

Chris.

If you did decide to stick with a flat 9 degree bar then I recently noticed the 640mm MCFK on Dulight for EUR 139 which might be a tempting bargain possibly...

Have you mentioned looking good on a MTB?

It's a 3k finish, I am looking for UD gloss. It is seriously temping anyhow.

The New Ultimate Evo UD 700mm riser had 9* backsweep with a 3* upsweep. That's 13mm of rise.

Info only had once the R-2 bike website is translated in German.


Chris.
