There are loads of reasons to swap out your bars, so with this in mind here’s our pick of the current best mountain bike handlebars deals.
Why get some new handlebars? There are plenty of reasons.
One unfortunate reasons for shopping for some new bars is that you’ve had a crash and suspect that your current bars are damaged and thus unsafe. Similarly, if your a regular mountain biker and your bars are a few years old, you may be pushing your luck. It’s a good idea not to run bars until they finally give out after a few years of hard riding.
The other reasons for buying some new bars are more to do with bike handling. Maybe you’re switching to a different stem clamp diameter ie. going from 31.8mm to 35mm, or vice versa. And then there’s opportunities for tweaking your cockpit ‘stance’; wider bars, higher rise bars, bars with more back sweep or up sweep.
Or maybe you just want some new cool handlebars, just because. That’s fine. Regardless of your rational, here’s our pick of the best mountain bike handlebars deals right now.
