Note - BLACK, SILVER, BLUE MID risers and BLACK, SILVER, BLUE LO risers are out of stock! Machining is scheduled, but please do not order these unless you want to wait until February.
Do you snowbike? Rise your bars - night and day difference for handling and comfort! Higher bars help you get your weight further back, and put you in a reactive stance for aggressive riding in varying terrain.
We wanted some killer, full billet options for our bikes, so that's exactly what we designed.
•Sturdy and lightweight - better than spacers
•Maintain the flex/rigid balance of your stock mounts
•0.2" horizontal offset allows flexibility with ergonomics and reach distance
•Tall option is one of the tallest risers on the market
•Includes custom tool for installation
>> Available with or without normal top caps, since you may or may not be planning on using C3's Top Cap Mount Handguards system.
>> Compatible with 1 1/8" "fatbar" handlebars - this means stock bars might not work with some bikes, including many Honda and Kawasaki.

How tall are they?
What size should I get?
Honestly, the feedback on the Tall risers has been great. We find that the best bar height is not solely dictated by rider height but mostly by seating position. In motocross, an intense standing + crouched attack position necessitates short risers, but in backcountry snowbiking the posture is much more about reading and reacting to the terrain.
All in all, it is very much rider preference, so I can only say so much here. Try to imagine if your bars were 2" higher. The people who we have seen occasionally regret going with Tall are lifelong motocross riders who want to stick to more like what they're used to, which is fair! So, here's my final recommendation:
LO - Dirt riding - any height people who are wanting to run C3 Handguards with 1 1/8" bars like C3 CenterFlow Heated Bars
MID - Dirt riding - Average or taller riders looking for a more relaxed seating position
Snowbiking - Riders with a strong motocross paradigm who want to stay familiar to what they know. Or, shorter than average riders.
TALL - Snowbiking - Average or taller riders who love snowbikes enough to forget what dirt riding is like!
Do I need to get longer cables to run Talls?
No, we've never heard of anyone needing longer cables. In some cases the routing of the wires and cables does need to be optimized a bit, like on some bikes the throttle cables will be happier to end up on the rider side of the bars instead of going in front.
Should I get "rubber kills"?
Based on our experience, "rubber kills" are basically necessary for Mid and Tall risers on KTM / Husky bikes, and for Tall risers on the other brands - otherwise there may be a noticeable amount play at the triple clamp connection. Other Pros of this include a more direct steering feel with precise feedback, plus less troubles with the bar mounts twisting if you knock something. Cons: more vibration feedback into the bars, especially with big-bore engines.
