    Hard to notice .25" rise in handlebars?

    Trying to decide between the Raceface Turbine and the Raceface Atlas hb...the Atlas is heavier and wider but has slightly less rise...I am moving into a Soma Juice that is more of my size and I expect I will have more room in the cockpit...assume the wider hb will drop me down even more in the cockpit, right?

    Yes. Handle bar sweep is an important spec. for "feel" as well.

    going to the Turbine would put me higher also because of the shorter width right? I noticed today how wide the Atlas bars really are at 785mm.....i had to slow down between several trees.

    I got the Turbine and it's noticeably shorter..I think I like it better as it seems to push me back slightly and feels like I have a little more control.
