The ENVE carbon sweep flat bar is 700mm and is about $260.
Bike porn at its prettiest.

Comfort of a swept riser but without any rise. Very handy in my case for a tall head tube and a 80mm frame running a 100mm fork.
I'm curious why you insist on a flat bar though. It doesn't really match the hard charging nature of a Mach 5. Low risers will open up a lot more options and higher risers open up stacks of options.
But actually quite heavy/no lighter than an alloy bar, something close to 200g is memory serves me correctly.

Your agonising over 50 grams in the handlebars confounds me given that you just blew 200-300 grams in rotational weight by buying Crossmark LUSTs.

"The Rules" don't apply to MTBs.
