As another reviewer wrote, I too love Race Face but this handlebar has such poor uniformity in carbon thickness, especially at the bar ends. Looking into the bar from the end, the inner diameter looks almost like an oval instead of a circle. The carbon goes from paper thin at one point to much thicker as you go around the inner diameter. This would result in unequal distribution of forces, possibly leading to failure. This does not inspire much confidence that the bar can safely handle downhill riding as it suggests. I have not even considered installing the bar on my all-mountain bike (which sees a lot of aggressive DH riding). If you're lucky enough to get a bar with some uniformity of the carbon, great. If not, I'd avoid this product.

      Comments about Race Face Sixc DH Handlebar:

      I originally wrote a negative review of these bars because I was hesitant about the uneven layering of carbon at the ends of the bars. After talking with Jenson's warranty department regarding their safety for downhill use, it was explained to me that some manufacturers do this intentionally when designing their carbon components. Since the bars have the same asymmetrical carbon layering at both ends of the bars, it appears this is intended for strength and weight savings.

      I have since installed and ridden these bars and I honestly love them. The vibration dampening is great, the 785 width is perfect for my AM ride, and they look amazing on the bike.

        This is a great handlebar with the perfect mix of bar length, weight, stiffness, dampening and style. I like the fact that you can color match with the choices race face offers in color accents. The bar is pricey but in line with most other manufacturers carbon offerings.

              Comments about Race Face Sixc DH Handlebar:

              Love Race Face but this handlebar has such bad uniformity in carbon thickness that even with the prescribe torque wrench settings for the grips the ends of the handlebar are delaminating from the inside out. The only reason I know this is because I had to transport my bike for an international race and had to take everything off the handlebars. So come to find out Jenson only offers a 60 warranty. So check the end of the handlebar for thickness uniformity before installing it on your bike.

                Comments about Race Face Sixc DH Handlebar:

                A great bar that is slightly wider and significantly lighter than what it replaced, shaving over 150g of the bike. The handlebar weighed 221g, which is just a gram off the published weight.

                I had some initial fit issues was with the rise. I went from a 1/2" rise and I honestly didn't think the 7mm change would matter. It did. My left hand started going numb on my first long ride and I felt like I had too much weight on my hands. It wasn't a huge difference, but it was noticeable.

                I changed spacers to lower the stem another 5mm, and that felt much better. My first chance to test it was a 10.5 mile race, and the bar was fantastic. Very happy with the look, feel and size of the bar. It's almost too long and I'm tempted to take it in just a bit on both ends, but I'm keeping it at it's stock width for the time being.

                  I'm a heavy guy who finds alot of the lighter bars and stems flexy like noodles when climbing.
                  These bars on a Easton havoc stem is a super stiff and light weight combo definitely worth the cash.
