Salsa Bend Bar 2
The Salsa Bend Bar 2 is an excellent choice for riders looking for an alternative mountain handlebar with a bit of backsweep. Available with either 17 or 23 degrees of sweep, the Salsa Bend 2 provides a natural hand position that delivers hours of comfortable riding. The nice and wide 710mm width gives you lots of leverage in the handling department and 5 deg of reversible vertical sweep furthers your options for fine tuning your cockpit.
- Graduated ends for easy trimming
- Double butted
- 5 deg +/- upsweep
- 17 or 23 deg backsweep
- 710, 715, 720mm width
- 31.8mm bar clamp diameter
- Aluminum AL7050 construction
When researching these I found that many people feel that a bar with this kind of sweep compromises handling, but I haven't found this to be the case. The Salsa 2 is plenty wide and provides enough leverage that I feel confident when navigating technical terrain. That being said I wouldn't recommend this kind of bar for downhill and other more extreme riding. They seem best suited for fireroads, singletrack, and commuting situations.
