The EVO Handlebar is ProTaper’s top-of-the-line model without a crossbar. Oversized diameter handlebars, without crossbars, were invented and patented by ProTaper in 1991. This design allows the handlebar to flex more and absorb impacts better than conventional bars, offering the rider more comfort and less fatigue without sacrificing bar strength. The EVO Handlebar utilizes a computer-profiled 4mm wall design and is up to 25% lighter than other bars, yet up to 45% stronger. According to Motocross Action Magazine, the amount of flex that the EVO provides “takes the jolting edge off of rough tracks and lessens hand fatigue.” Transworld Motocross adds, “We don’t care what kind of bike you ride, the EVO will improve the comfort.”
Since 1991 ProTaper has continued to produce some of the worlds most premium control components available on the market today. We pride ourselves on providing an exciting, innovative and complete product line to fill the control and drive needs of today’s serious racer to the average weekend rider.
