Inspired Arcade Riser Handlebars

Product code: 12291


In stock

Inspired Arcade Riser Handlebars


Sold out

  • Now available in black or silver finish!
- Top quality, super-high riser bar as found on the Inspired Arcade bike.
- Extruded from 7050-T6 aluminium.
- 31.8mm oversized stem clamp diameter for increased strength.
- Multi-taper wall thicknesses increase strength in high stress areas without adding excessive weight.
- Similar total rise to other handlebars - the difference is in the upsweep! More "rise" and less upsweep makes the "shoulders" of the handlebars much higher, which makes the part that most of you hands actually grip notably higher than bars with less "rise" and more sweep. This makes the bars feel much higher rise. (See extra picture for visual comparison to the ever-popular Trialtech High Rise bars.)
- Available in anodised matte black or silver with high resolution laser etched Inspired graphics.

- Upsweep: 4
- Backsweep: 9
- Total rise (click text to see a diagram): 102mm
- Width: 730mm (28.74")

- Weight: 368g

Hi, I have a Flow plus and I'm riding in Kabul, Afghanistan. Is there anyway I could buy an Inpired Arcade Rriser Handlebare and can you ship it Kabul ? Is it possible ? Thanks Best Regards.

Hi Asghar!
Shipping parts to Kabul is no problem! The only issue we have is that the Arcade bars are out of stock at the moment, but once they're back in stock you would be able to order them through the website as normal.
To be notified when they're back in stock, click the 'Notify Me' button on the product page and enter your e-mail address. As soon as they're put back in stock you'll receive an e-mail from us.
Once they're back in, to check shipping prices simply add a pair to your Basket, then click the View Basket button. Our website will calculate shipping options for you and display the prices and estimated shipping times.

Hi, i have an inspired hex 26, are these alot higher.? Or is the difference hardly noticeble? Thanks

Hi Bart!
If you have the Hex Pro with the standard bars fitted, the Arcade risers have around 20mm or so of extra total rise. If you have the more recent Hex Team bike then that is fitted with the Arcad bars as standard.

Will White with Black logos be returning? I swear for me to love anything it has to immediately discontinue lol

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Coy!
The White w/Black logo option has been discontinued for a long time now, sorry.
We got some very limited residual stock of the Silver w/Black Logo bars in very recently, to compliment our on-going stock of Black w/White Logo bars, but once the Silver bars have sold we'll be back to just Black.
Sorry we can't be more help!


What is the distance from the end of the bar to the point where the bar starts curving downward into the rise? My current setup is a TMS bar at 720mm with Shimano Saint levers. To get the correct brake lever position, I have to clamp the levers inboard to the point where they are located at the beginning of the curve, which tilts the angle of the levers back toward the bar. Rather than switch brakes, I'd like to switch bars but I want to make sure there is enough distance between the curve and the end.

Hi, We've just measured both bars. The TMS ones have approx 17cm of straight section, where as the the Arcade bars have approx 19cm of straight section to clamp levers, so that should do the trick! Thanks, Stan.


Hello, I was wondering if I could put these on a mountain bike.

Posted by Tadhg

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Tadhg - As long as you have a 31.8mm bar clamp on your stem (you can measure the diameter of your existing bars where they clamp in the stem to check - it's the most common size so hopefully you do!), these bars should fit your mountain bike fine. Thanks, Mark


I have a 2012 Inspired element with a Trialtech stem, just wanted to make sure these bars will fit that stem before i go ahead and buy it. Decs.

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Decs - These bars would fit your Trialtech stem fine. Thanks, Mark


Hey I was just wondering if these bars will help me with manuals, and hops. Having a hard time getting leverage lately. Also will these fit my Inspired Element 2016 with the trial tech stem I got with the bike from tarty bikes? Thanks for your time haha, if you get this.

Posted by Briers

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Briers - The Arcade bars do help with manuals and bunnyhops thanks to the extra bar height they give. I noticed a big difference when I put them on my Inspired! They would fit straight into the Trialtech stem you've already got on the bike so you wouldn't need to buy any other parts to make them compatible. It's also worth playing with bar angle when you fit them. Having them rolled backwards a little helps for manuals and bunnyhops, whereas rolling them forward more will help for backhops and more trialsy moves. It's all about finding the right compromise. Thanks, Mark


Hi, will these bars fit an inspired flow stem ?

Posted by mikael

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Mikael - If you have the 2016 Flow then you would also need a new stem as the latest Flow uses a smaller bar clamp diameter. Any of the 31.8mm stems we sell should work - the BBB Forged 90mm stem we sell should work really well on that bike. Thanks, Mark

Sergey Sklyarov

Hello,I have a question. I need a black arcade handlebar,exactly black. But I dont see it in stock now:( When he appears? Its very important for me because I really need it! Thank you:)

Posted by Sergey Sklyarov

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Sergey - thanks for your question. Unfortunately they stopped making that style available separately, and they are now only found on the complete Arcade bikes. The closest alternative would be to get the black bars, remove the graphics, and put a black vinyl Inspired sticker where the logo should be. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.


Hi, will these bars fit an inspired fourplay pro stem ?

Posted by Fille

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Fille - yes, these will fit in that stem no problem. Thanks, Flipp.


Hi, I have the arcade bars on my Inspired and recently I noticed that they weren't centered in my stem, but the marks on the bars were centered. Could it really be that Inspired applied the marks wrongly?

Posted by Max

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Max - thanks for your question. It is not uncommon for graphics on handlebars to be slightly off. It is unfortunate, but there is relatively little to be done about it - even really big mountainbike companies have this issue sometimes! Thanks, Flipp.


Hi, will these bars fit (slide through) an Echo TR stem? or are they designed for more traditional stems with removable face plates. Thanks

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Jason - thanks for your question. They should fit relatively easily, but unfortunately we cannot say for sure as we have never tried it. Thanks, Flipp.


Hello, I was wondering how my riding will be affected if I install these bars on my 24' inspired fourplay bike. I currently am running trialtech high rise bars with a 70x35 stem. I ride mostly street but enjoy doing trials tricks also. I'm looking for something to maybe help my maneuverability but without sacrificing my ability to do trials. Will these bars do the trick? Thanks

Posted by Chris

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Chris - thanks for your question. A large portion of what helps you ride is down to personal preference. These bars have a lot of rise which is great for bumping up the front end height of your bike, though whether or not that's a good thing depends on how you like your bike to ride. If you feel a little cramped, then these bars might help to make you feel more at home by creating more space. They also feature a lot less sweep than more trials-oriented handlebars. Some people find this makes them a little nicer for streetier type riding, though several people run them on their 20" bikes for riding on rocks and very trialsy terrain. Sorry that's a bit vague, but hopefully it helped a little! Thanks, Flipp.

These bars are simply amazing. They've changed my riding for the better and make moves like spins and manuals so much easier. Certainly the rider makes the biggest difference on any bike, but if there's one thing that helps quite a bit, it's these. I'm still fairly new to street trials, but these have been a great upgrade to my bike (coming from the truvative bars that came stock on my Inspired Arcade Fuse). On a side note, the customer service from Tarty Bikes continues to be amazing. Being new to trials riding and not knowing exactly how these bars would effect my riding, I contacted Adam with my questions. As always, he was prompt and very detailed in his response, even going as far as reaching out to Mark for additional info that really helped me to decide on getting the bars. The bars arrived at my front door super quick and they were on my bike and being enjoyed right away. Two thumbs way up for Tarty Bikes and everyone that goes into making it a great resource for trials riders of all levels! Thanks guys!!!

Hi Dave - Thanks for the detailed review, and for the nice comments. We really appreciate it, and we're glad you're enjoying riding your bike!



Posted by Anthony

I bought the Arcade Fuse which comes with Truvativ bars and I found that even though I'm not overly tall they felt a bit strange to me. I put it down to a bit of ring rust as I took quite a break from riding. I noticed especially when trying to do manuals that I just couldn't quite keep control as well as I thought - finding the balance point was really hit or miss. I started to wonder if a higher rise bar would feel a bit better so I tried them out. I felt a noticeable difference from the first time I pulled up on the test ride in the car park. Everything just feels right now. The bike handles the way I imagined it would when I first bought it. Some things are just worth the money and these bars complement the Arcade perfectly.

Hi Anthony - I'm glad you like your new bars, and that they've given your bike the feel you were looking for. Thanks for the detailed review!


Not a waste of money

Posted by Arno

As I was happy before with the deliverance of tartybikes, the steer arrived here in Belgium after 3 days! Was very happy, immeadiadly changed with my trialtech handlebar on my Inspired Fourplay Pro 24". Took it for a ride today and the result made me very happy, I did feel the difference very well, more control, more easier balance, manuals went way easier, more space for my knees since I'm pretty tall! I am not regretting this purchase, Thank you tartybikes!

Reply from TartyBikes

Hi Arno - It's great to hear you like your new Arcade bars. They're very popular for the reasons you've listed! I hope you continue to enjoy them, and thank you for the review.


Huge Improvement for Tall Rider (6'3")

Posted by Charles

These bars give longer moment arm over front end and increase lift. Also, they straighten my posture when up on rear wheel making balance point easier to find and maintain. Great addition to my Inspired Element. Service at Tarty Bikes is first class. Great technical advice. Ordered parts one day and had them in hand 2 days later. Despite import tariff, shipping, still cheaper than buying similar products stateside. Although if my local bike store had the parts, I would buy locally to encourage the sport in the US.

Hi Charles - I'm glad the bars have worked out well for you, and that's your happy with the service. Thanks for the review!

highly recommended worth every penny and fast delivery perfect service by staff on the telephone and very helpful the only let down is the lack of colour choice



Posted by Robert

The arcade riser handlebars are very lightweight and I found that the shape makes it easier for me to perform a variety of tricks and also helps me find my balance point quickly. Lots of fun, highly recommended product!
