G: Rise: 9″, 9.5″, 10″
Riding a tall rise, will give you more leverage on the bike. Making it easier to pull back and lift the front wheel up.
H: Width: 28″
This is a narrow width.
Narrow bars make barspins easier.
Wide bars give you more control and stability when steering.
I: Backsweep: 10º
What does backsweep do?
As far as I know, there is a sweet spot for backsweep. Too much will make the bike feel weird, and too little will make the bike unstable. It seems like the sweet spot is around 11º to 12º. If you need something a little more aggressive and straight feeling, go for 10º, but only do this if 11º is uncomfortable.
J: Upsweep: 3º
What does upsweep do?
There is a lot of discussion about 1º upsweep vs. 4º upsweep. Some people are running experiments and testing if the greater upsweep will make drops feel better. It seems like a lot of street riders run 4º to 5º upsweep. This helps for wrist pain and lessens the impact of big drops.

The lightweight nature along with the geometry makes these bars good for park riders. They come in taller sizes which will really help out a taller rider. For $80 they do seem to be a little expensive. Shadow is known for good quality, but there are some cheaper options out there.
