Today's hardtails and short travel full suspension bikes are generally 29er's, so the cockpit set-up can feel a little high to some competitive riders and serious enthusiasts who prefer to be a little lower for speed and control, along with climbing weight balance over both wheels. Subtle differences matter, and efficient riders love consistency. The Ritchey Comp Trail Flat +/- 5 Handlebar is two bars in one: select 5mm of rise or drop while maintaining a 9° backsweep. That gives you some subtle flexibility, along with possible stem angle set-up options, for an optimized forward cockpit height in relation to saddle position.

Like many of Ritchey's best blend of performance and expense, the Comp Trail Flat +/- 5 is made with double-butted 6061 aluminum alloy. This blend provides excellent strength and resiliency over time, with optimal stiffness for sure cockpit and front wheel control. The bar itself is pretty strong overall, so unless you have visible real damage after a crash, you can be confident of safe, controlled riding capability until you or a mechanic can truly examine it. This a bar you can ride day in and day out, with surety and confidence.
