How wide do you want to go? Renthal have w i d e bars in high or low rise. I haven't used them, but their stuff is quality kit.

Azonics did some pretty wide. The flats they did are harder to find, riser not so much.

Misfit Psycles have the ME-2 and FU bars that are 25.4 and wider, but no colour:

Retro favourites of mine are the Answer Pro tapers in gold, perfect bars for riding and came in several width and rise options. If you are looking for other colours, Race Face did the Air Alloy in ano colours, I have one of those in blue.

Enjoy!!
