The Contour Handlebar is ProTaper’s most popular model. Oversized-diameter handlebars without crossbars were invented and patented by ProTaper in 1991. Without sacrificing strength, this design yields increased flex and impact absorption over conventional handlebars, offering the rider improved comfort and reduced fatigue. With its 2000 series aluminum alloy construction and computer-profiled 5 mm-thick wall design, the Contour Handlebar is up to 20% lighter and 40% stronger than competing handlebars. At only $149.95, it’s also the most affordable way to equip your bike with the 1⅛” handlebar design that changed an industry.

  • 1⅛” tubing at the clamping area
  • Exclusive 5 mm-thick 2000 series T6 aluminum alloy for superior tensile and yield strengths
  • Best balance between fatigue life, impact strength, and impact-absorbing flex at price point
  • High-tech shot peened, stress-relieved, and anodized finish for unmatched durability
  • Clutch side knurling provides maximum grip adhesion
  • Chemically applied cut lines and alignment grid are scratch- and peel-resistant
  • Plastic end plugs keep the elements out and provide a stronger base for grip ends
  • Weighs only 1.55 lbs. (703 grams) without pad
  • Handlebar pad included

If there’s one thing I know it’s handlebar bends. Most buyers on here are looking for a bar to suit enduro/trail riding or adventure/general riding. The standard bars on most of the old school bikes are useless steel, heavy with a low bend and too much sweep.

In our opinion we stock the three best the Windham/RM Mid, KX High and Pastrana FMX High all in by far the most popular black !


Below is an example of the useless bars that came on these older style trail and enduro bikes, old heavy steel, too low, too much bend, bin em !

Dimensions of standard DR/DRZ handlebars in mm –
