Achieving a neutral saddle-to-handlebar relationship can be difficult, regardless of whether it’s a fat bike, touring bike, or 29er. In one application, Niner's Low Top RDO Handlebar perfectly positions riders with a sub-27-inch standover on its X-Small frames. But, that doesn’t mean it's limited to one role.
Another would be professional XC racers looking to achieve the desired race-oriented fit — as this isn't a flipped riser bar, but a true RDO (Race Day Optimized) design. This means it's armed with variable wall thicknesses and a carbon weave designed for drop, not rise, that's intended to perfectly balance strength, dampening, and low weight. And, if a 17-degree sweep and 25mm drop with a 720mm width matches your cockpit goals, then Niner's Low Top RDO belongs at the front of your ride.
At its full width, the Low Top RDO weighs under 260 grams, and it can be cut down for narrower shoulders. The Low Top RDO has a 31.8mm clamp diameter with tasteful logos in all five of Niner's distinguished colors.

Can these bars be "flipped" and to a positive rise Vs a negative drop?
