Australian Mountain Bike - - Between The Tape -

Other than a 25mm rise, met­rics-wise you are look­ing at the same back and up­sweep as the car­bon bar from Truvativ. You are also still get­ting the choice of a Troy Lee De­signs CoLab if jet black isn’t your thing. One big sur­prise was how com­pli­ant these bars were when com­par­ing them to their car­bon big­ger brother. Even with its over­sized 35mm clamp and us­ing the same stem we found the Truvativ Descendant Al­loy bar of­fers less hand fa­tigue on long, rough de­scents when com­pared to the car­bon ver­sion. While you do not get to feel the same di­rect con­trol when muscling the bike that the car­bon bar gives you, the trade-off is a smoother ride at per­haps half the cost and less stress and con­cern if you dig your bars into the dirt dur­ing a crash.
