Good Pick for DH or All Mountain

The Good:

Width, topo pattern, and durability.

The Bad:

A little heavy.

Overall Review:

Function

This bar is the perfect choice for you if you want stability and speed and are not too concerned about weight. The low rise will put you in the perfect position to go fast. The aluminum gives great durability and doesn't transfer as much trail chatter to your forearms as other aluminum bars.  Race Face did a great job with the topo print.  It looks great on multiple set ups.  I have considered upgrading to the Next bar, but the looks of this bar keeps me satisfied.

Durability

Installing your grips, brake levers, and stem usually leaves a mark.  The finish has held up well.  The topo print distracts from the small scratches and clamp marks that are typical on bars.  For the money this is a great choice.

Sweet bars

Width, geometry, colors, strength

The Bad:

weight, but not by much

Overall Review:

The atlas are an excellent bar. They come in at the perfect width and they feel great. The low rise is perfect for riders who like a low setup, and it gives that aggressive, racy feel. It comes in a bunch of great colors so you can match it to pretty much any build and they seem to hold up well in crashes. They are definitely heavier than some competition but they look better than most of them.

The Good:

this bar is way light. wide enough to keep everyone happy. anodizing is done very well and is very resistant to scratching. looks great with the 2010 graphics. great color options (im running the tooth blue). also its extremely stiff.

The Bad:

bend is 4x8 not 4x9. half an inch rise is a little too low for me, i would have liked to see a couple options for height.

Overall Review:

if you havent tried wide bars and a low front end, your way behind the curve. it is way better if you ride fast or want more control or stability.

Perfect Bar

The Good:

Strong, I like the width and the sweep although some may feel that they arent swept back aggressively enough.

The Bad:

Dont seem to hold bar ends in paticularly well. Scratch easily

Overall Review:

Would suggest this bar to anyone who wants a higher level of control of their bike. If trail width is not an issue, and you are not pulling tricks, the extra leverage this bar provides due to its stiffness and width is very beneficial.

Great Handlebar

The Good:

Wide length. Good low rise, super flat. Awesome colors. Tough anodized aluminum. Marked for acurate cutting and weight.

The Bad:

The transition might be odd and 785mm is very long so cutting down might be needed to reduce being awkward.

Overall Review:

These bars are great. At first I had a hard time adjusting to them but then it was all cherry from there on. Nice wide and low angle applies much more control over the bike, mainly the rear tire. A good upgrade to enhance the feel of any ride.

Awesome bar!

The Good:

Looks and feels great(2010 bar looks even better than the 2009 bar)

The Bad:

might be a tiny bit heavy if you are a weight winnie.

Overall Review:

Best bar I have ever ridden, plenty of space to get the most comfortable brake placement and it has a very high quality feel.
