The EVO bar is the evolution of all the best features of the original ProTaper and Contour models. The ProTaper EVO handlebar employs the latest blend of proprietary alloys and processing techniques in manufacturing.
The EVO model utilizes a computer profiled 4mm wall design; thus, making the handlebar lighter and giving it a more sensitive feel. The EVO is based on the same platform as our original ProTaper bar, but we have added some great improvements. Handlebar end-plugs help keep the elements out of the handlebar tubing and aid in longer grip wear. EVO has the best balance between fatigue life, impact strength and impact absorbing flex. All EVO handlebars are manufactured to more exact rise and pullback specifications and tolerances to provide a consistent and accurate feel. Independent lab tests show that the EVO handlebars outlast every other handlebar on the market in fatigue life. The EVO handlebar incorporates a unique coating inside the tubing of the handlebar to resist corrosion The use of left-side knurling provides maximum grip traction. Chemically applied graphics are scratch-resistant, can't peel and provide long lasting appeal.
