MTB handlebars: the peripheral intended for piloting
The MTB handlebar is the peripheral that differentiates a bike between the different types of disciplines. The road bike handlebar is curved and allows several control options, in BMX the handlebar is high to favour extensions, while in MTB the handlebar is wide and rather flat.
The MTB handlebar is a peripheral like the seatpost: it supports the arms of the rider, especially to control a mountain bike. You'll direct your bike with your MTB handlebar, to the right or to the left. The handlebar is fixed on the stem that links it to the fork.
There are usually two materials for MTB handlebars, either aluminium or carbon. The latter is increasingly present on the market as it brings rigidity and lightness.
MTB handlebars, finding your right position
The key is to find handlebars that will put you into a natural position and allow you to drive your MTB to the best of your capacity.
There is therefore a wide choice of mountain bike handlebars to meet all the expectations of mountain bikers.
Here are some criteria to consider:
- the diameter
- the width
- the Rise (handlebar lift)
- the upsweep (a linear enhancement)
- the backsweep (the ends come back inwards).
