I remember Howard buying the Marzochi Z one when it came out and to the shock of everyone mounted that 4 inch travel beast on his GT annodized blue Zaskar. He had these super wide( at the time) handlebars with I think a one inch rise.  He wanted an even wider bar and more rise.   Decades later I'm using those now narrow riser bars on my commute bikes.  They look cool! And I think they are more comfortable on long rides.  I remember seeing 800 mm bars with shortest stack hight possible. You don't know what works till you try it.    My Answer pro taper bars in loud orange weighs about 320 grams so these new bars are not significantly heavier. They sure look comfy!
