Race Face Next R Handlebars Review


I've had the Race Face Next R 35 handlebars for about a month on my new YT Capra 29 and have zero complaints. As a bigger guy at 6'4" I run them uncut at 800mm in the 35mm rise and they fit great. Switching to carbon bars was an upgrade that I immediately noticed on the first few rides. It has made a huge difference in improving comfort, reducing chatter and decreasing arm pump/fatigue compared to aluminum ones. My arms don't feel as tired after a few shuttle runs or a longer DH trail.

First Impressions

These handlebars are also super lightweight. They almost feel like nothing at all when you are holding them by themselves. I'm a big fan of the styling and graphics as well. Simple and clean without going overboard on graphics and colors they should look good on any bike. They definitely have a premium feel to them. I haven't had them long enough up comment on durability but don't expect any issues based on my previous experience with Race Face products. They have held up very well.

Final Thoughts

Overall I have been super happy with my purchase. I wouldn't hesitate to buy these handlebars again and would recommend them to anyone looking to upgrade for improved comfort and performance. Check them out if you're in the market for a new set of handlebars.
