Since they have a fixed attachment to the stem, it all depends on your head 
tube angle. They are MTB handlebars originally. I think the current 
versions were meant for Bombadils, which have a 70.5 or 71 degree head tube 
angle. If your head tube is steeper than that, the ends will point up 
slightly. By the same token, if you have a more slack angle, they will 
point down slightly.
