Salsa Salt Flats are my choice for my abused hands and arms. Sweepy and comfy but normal enough for shreddin'.
11 degrees back, 6 degrees up, 800mm wide, no rise, choose your price point.
I had the carbon version of this bar on my Rocky Element and I found them quite stiff and uncomfortable. The bends were nice, I just found it crazy stiff. I think they might have been so stiff due to the extra material they added so you can mount tribars to them. #sillybikepackers. Flat bars will always be stiffer compered to riser bar. The salsa just felt like a brick, no flex I could feel.
I now have the Carbon Nukeproof 31.8 12mm rise (flat bar) and it is way more comfortable. Its no SQ Lab Flexx bar but it feels just right for my Element.
