The Rip bars from UK company Ultimate Sports Engineering are a high end carbon flat bar option offering 720mm of width (a wider 740mm version is available too), 8° of sweep and 5mm of rise. Designed to be both comfortable and aggressive, they are ideal for XC racers and long distance trail riders. The flat top position provides an enhanced climbing position, and would also suit riders with modern geometry 27.5 and 29” wheeled bikes, where bar rise is not necessary (plus anyone else who likes the flat bar position!).
The bars offer a great balance of strength and weight, weighing in at a very race friendly 158g. They provide a ride position which is both speedy and comfortable, and look pretty sweet too, with a matt black finish and subtle gloss black logo details.
