In general riser bars tend to be wider than flat bars and may have slightly more flex to give a more forgiving ride. As you go into descents and your arms drop below your knees the additional height gained on your front end will help you take control of the steep descents.
That said, you can get all bar types in a range of widths and stiffnesses and front end height can be adjusted with spacers like our Sonder Rings, so sometimes you just have to ignore the mumbo jumbo and make your call on style and personal preference - and there is nothing wrong with that.
