Why Go Wide?
The 760mm width gives extra control on downhills and rough sections, enhances cornering performance by allowing you to tip further into corners in while remaining centered over the bike plus give fantastic leverage for climbing and sprinting.
Wide bars are an essential upgrade that you will wonder how you ever did without!
What Width Bar / Length Stem To Use?
The general rule of thumb is to maintain a 2:1 ratio of handlebar width to stem length. For every 20mm increase in handlebar width you should reduce your stem length by 10mm. So if you’re running 660mm bars with a 100mm stem and want to try a handlebar that is 720mm wide you will need to pair that 720mm handlebar with an 70mm stem to maintain a relatively consistent position on the bike.
Like most rules of thumb, this 2:1 ratio is by no means absolute and it is only useful if you’re starting from a comfortable fit position.
