    Heavier than the non-expert version

      Comments about Answer Protaper Expert 685 XC Riser Bar:

      These bars are made with 6000 series aluminum while the non-expert (and more expensive) version is made with 7000 series aluminum. I personally weighed the Flat, 1/2-inch, and 1-inch models of both series as follows:
      "Expert" 6000 series 286g, 365g, and 377g respectively.
      Non-"Expert" 7000 series 231g, 264g, and 263g respectively.
      Both should be quite durable, but you have to pay for less weight. They are nice, attractive, easy-to-use bars.

          I upgraded my stock bars with this wide handlebar and the control feels stable now during descent. Highly recommended for a cheap upgrade.
