Skywire 35 15mm Carbon Riser Handlebar
When it came to 35mm bore handlebars, Deity was a little bit slower on the uptake than some of the other brands on the market. We suspect it has something to do with its designers drive to dial in perfection, and skip using us as their guinea pigs on the trail. None the less, we're more than pleased that the beefy 35's have made their way into Deity's offerings, like the Skywire 35 15mm Carbon Riser Handlebar. This light and stiff bars find the balance between the jarring super-stiff feel of 35mm bars, tapering things just right to improve performance and reduce arm pump and blown out hands that the harsher stiffer bars cause. This particular model features 9-degrees of backsweep, and 15-millimeters of rise that finds a balance in your position in the cockpit, somewhere right between the forward feel of flat bars, and upright of higher-rise bars. This enables you to easily move fore and aft on the bike for getting over the bars when you need to attack, or back behind the saddle on the steeps.

Diety Skywire Handlebars
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Size Bought:
- 800mm wide
- 5' 4"
Handlebars are 800mm wide and have 15mm rise with a 9 degree back sweep. So according to my calculations, the 1degree backsweep increase should compensate for the 10mm decrease in rise compared to the old bars and still maintain a sufficient attack position if needed. Makes for a cozy cockpit, competent climber and pedaller, but not so much for descending, but that’s okay, my Santa Cruz 5010 isn’t a downhill bike and I’ll save the riser bars for the downhill or enduro bikes for now.
