Bikemonger says: These new bars make you feel like a street walking cheetah with a heart full of napalm... fan-bloody-tastic: wide for proper leverage, but sweeping for comfort. Damned light too.
Prime stats... 800mm wide, 38mm rise, 17 degree sweep.

Here’s a little known fact. Most MTB bars don’t have enough sweep!
The Moto bar is a little different. Inspired by 70’s California and the original klunkers and Motocross bikes, its a wide, wide riser bar with sweep, 17 degrees in this case. The speed and control this bar provides really is outstanding, with a hand position that is so natural and comfortable there’ll be no going back. It also makes a perfect singlespeed grinder bar due to its width, though to pigeonhole it really wouldn’t do it justice, this is a bar that rocks, period, shove it on your trail or enduro bike and the result will be the same – Radness!!! Heat treated 7050 alloy, 800mm wide, 38mm rise, 17 degree sweep, black anodizing with laser etched ‘Stooge’ logo. 31.8 clamp area. Weight – 340 grams.

Krampus even better.
Ace bars! Wide, comfy, great control - makes my Krampus xl even better and an absolute hoot. Got them after reading reviews here. Good for ups, downs, techy stuff, and everything in between.
Ordered Friday evening, arrived the following Wednesday, a day earlier than expected (exceptional for Inverness), on the bike and tested that night.
Great bars. Look crazy on the bike, but make sense when riding, especially single speed as can haul the thing up the hills. Great control, very comfy and turned a fat bike into a monster, inspiring confidence and control on the trails. If you want to feel like Steve McQueen in the Great Escape, get these.
Fantastic bar, makes the Krampus into such a cool ride. The handling is now so RAD that I can tackle almost any terrain. But they are so wide, I can catch my knuckles on EVERY tree in Wareham forest!

A nice wide bar with rise and backsweep to give you a more upright riding position, rather than, head down backside up position. Great if you like admiring the views.
Without doubt the best shaped bar ever. Offers a good rise to counter the recent trend of short head tubes, with a large sweep but still 800mm wide. So comfy but still great for descending gnarr.
