A riser bar is to an enduro sled like peanut butter is to chocolate: it's not for everybody, but if it's your thing, then it fulfills a craving that no other combination can. For that particular group, TruVativ's Descendant TLD Carbon Riser Handlebar stands up tall with 20mm of rise across its 750mm expanse in order to give you the all-mountain equivalent of a peanut butter cup's mix of salty sweetness and pleasantly soft, savory bitterness, and a fresh paint job to stand out against the rest. Truvativ teamed up with Troy Lee Designs for this colab-edition Descendant, rocking a teched-out camo print that is flashy and bold without going overboard. The bar's rise adds more stability by shifting your center of gravity back slightly, but the length makes cornering easier and steering more responsive by accounting for the slack head tubes that typically define enduro sleds. The combination nets a cockpit that's comfortable rolling roughshod over terrain instead of dicing through it. It retains the big-hit hunger of your 66-degree monster, but it also tidies up the occasionally sloppy steering that we associate with those brutish bikes.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
