About MTB Handlebars
Mountain bike or flat handlebars can be made from carbon or alloy and feature various clamp sizes and bends. Oversized mtb bars have a 31.8mm clamp area, while standard bars have 25.4mm. Cross country bars are usually relatively straight, but can feature different rises which bring the grips and levers higher up, these are known as riser bars and come in low, medium and high riser bar formats. Downhill bars tend to be made of a stiffer more durable material, so are stronger and slightly heavier than a XC bar.

Magazine reviews for FSA K-Force Riser MTB Handlebar
Review from Bikeradar
You can't see the carbon and Kevlar composite that sets FSA's new K-Force bar apart from the rest, as it's buried underneath a cosmetic wrap of carbon weave.
It's purported to improve durability while keeping weight down to a reasonable 174g for the 18mm rise version we tested (a 25mm rise version is also available). At 660mm it's not the widest bar out there but there's just enough width to avoid a cramped cockpit.
We're not convinced reinforcement for bar ends is necessary on a riser bar, but appreciate the extra work that's gone into strengthening the brake/shift lever clamp section and textured 31.8mm stem clamp area, though you'll still have to take the usual care in fitting and upkeep that lightweight carbon parts require.
FSA's red and white graphics are lairy in a clean way and the combination of standard nine-degree backsweep and four-degree upsweep feels reassuringly normal.
A spendy steering upgrade with potential for a longer life than the competition
