Handlebar width affects how your bike handles and feels out on the trail. If you’re a downhiller, you might want to consider going wide; possibly up to 800mm. Even XC riders are going wide now – some up to 700mm.

In this video, Marc and Neil run through how to work out your ideal bar width and how your riding style might affect the bars that you run.
