Another budget option in line with the Ergotec mentioned earlier in the thread is the XLC HB-M19.

Sub €30 from the Germans, 31.8x780mm, 50mm rise, 12° backsweep. Just took delivery of mine today so shouldn't recommend it, but still want to celebrate that it exists.

A new option with 12° sweep and 50mm rise, plus a throw-back look crossbar, and very reasonably priced at only $69: https://ridefarr.com/product/handlebar-alloy-supa-riser-820-31-8/

I've been strongly considering a bar with this geo for my HT (already have a 12° bar that I love on my FS) and I like the way this one looks, but I'm concerned it won't play nice with my 3 year old's Kids Ride Shotgun handlebar (small problem) and that the crossbar will make it too stiff for my taste (bigger problem).

If you're putting a shotgun bar on a bike like that, another alternative is to use a couple of the ends of road bar tape on the crossbar/on top of the bends. Worked great on my Protaper 3" rise bars when the KRS bar wouldn't fit well.

50mm rise!

The one thing about the SQLabs 30X bar is it is rated for gravity applications.  No idea about these others. It's my first non-Renthal bar in a long time
