The drop style handlebars are standard on all road bikes. Comfort/hybrid bikes will usually have the flat bar style.

I think the best technique for descending is to ride with your hands in the drops (where the bars curl down). You can make very subtle adjustments to your direction, and you can also very easily apply the brakes forcefully if you have to.
