    Is the Mt. Zoom Ultralight carbon riser still the standard?

    Or is there a carbon bar at least 750mm or wider that weight weenies are going to when factoring in weight vs price (and of course strength/reliability).

    Although not directly answering your question, I'm riding/racing one of their 9-degree bars based on recommendations/reviews from others in this forum. IMO, their riser bar checks the boxes you're interested in.

    Still the standard? Strong statement.

    I've seen a few recent references to their products, and the price:weight seems good, but I haven't seen anything re reliability.

    One thing that concerns me is that I can't find a physical address for them anywhere - not on their site. Can anyone speak to reliability (long term) and/or warranty experience?

    I ran the 740mm version for maybe 3 years before I sold the bike they were on. I was running them on a 140mm travel stump jumper doing everything up-to and including uplift DH days with no issues.

    Anthony is very responsive on facebook if you have any questions.

    I've been running the 720mm riser bar for the last 2 years and it is still in perfect condition. Got a 760mm to try this year with a shorter stem and I'm pretty sure it will be as good as my 720mm.

    I've had 2 of their handlebars and they worked great for the 3 years I used them, they're still being used by their new owners.
