Things to consider for mountain bike handlebars

Riders don't necessarily think much about their handlebars, given that they're fixed. However, differences in design can make a big difference in the riding experience. Wider mountain bike handlebars will give you more control over the ride. You'll have more leverage to steer, which gives you a more stable riding experience. Wider bars will also slow down your steering, which may or may not be a good thing depending on the style of rider you are. An easy way to figure out the width of mountain bike handlebars is to get onto the floor in a push-up stance. Measure the width of your hands (from the outside of one to the outside of the other), and that's a great starting point for a comfortable width for you.

Metals used for mountain bike handlebars are typically aluminium, carbon, titanium, steel, or an alloy. Whatever the material, look for one that has been designed to be durable, weatherproof, and strong. Carbon will keep the weight of your bike to a minimum. You'll also want to measure your mountain bike stem to figure out what diameter clamp you need on the replacement handlebars, ranging from 22.2mm to 35.0mm.
