Choosing a Bar BendProTaper Bend Diagram

Handlebars are a critical part of bike setup and everybody has different preferences. There are a few basic things to consider when setting up a bike with new bars. These are just observations we have made since we deal alot with setting up the controls. Remember everybody has a different preference.

1. Height of the rider (taller riders usually need taller bars or bar positions)

2. Type of riding (depending on where you ride woods, desert, moto etc. Woods riders tend to sit more and may prefer a bar with more sweep. Desert riders stand and sit both and a neutral sweep bar may be a better choice. Moto riders tend to stand in the attack position more and a bar with less sweep "straighter" might be a better choice.

Contour Bends

The Contour bar is available in over16 different bends and 4 colors.
