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 lead the way in premium control
components. We pride ourselves on providing an exciting, innovative, and
complete product line to fulfill the needs of professional racers and weekend riders alike. Through revolutionary ideas like the oversized 1⅛" handlebar and the Micro Handlebar Kit—the only control system purpose-built for youth riders—ProTaper continues to push the limits and transform how we experience riding our motorcycles.
