35mm isn't as pervasive because it is an inferior product.  It is stiffer, which for 99.9999% of riders is worse not better.  For bars with little to no rise or sweep they are brutal on your hands.  I rode the OEM Race Face bar on my Hightower for a year and my wrists couldn't do it a second year.  Switched to a Renthal and it is miles better, but still not as comfortable as a smaller diameter bar.  If I wasn't so cheap I would swap the bar and stem to 31.8, but for now I just ride the 35.
