    When you want to get rid of your crossbar go with the ProTaper EVO 1 1/8 Handlebars and you’ll have one of the strongest, most flexible set of bars there available. ProTaper invented and patented the original "fat" bar, so you can count on them doing it right and delivering the best they have to offer.

    The EVO is a precisely profiled bar with 4mm thick 7000 series aluminum alloy walls for an overall design that is 25% lighter and 45% stronger than competing handlebars. With specs like that you get a set of bars with a nearly perfect balance between fatigue life, impact strength and impact absorbing flex.

    Specs:
  • Made from 4mm, proprietary, 7000 series aluminum alloy for superior tensile and yield strength
  • Best balance between fatigue life, impact strength and impact absorbing flex
  • High tech, stress relieved, shot peen and anodized finish for unmatched durability
  • Independent lab tests show that the EVO handlebars outlast every other handlebar on the market in fatigue life
  • Epoxy inner coating resists corrosion
  • Left side knurling provides maximum grip traction
  • Chemically applied cut lines and alignment grid are scratch and peel resistant
  • End plugs help keep the elements out of the handlebar tubing and aid in longer grip life
  • Weighs only 1.4 pounds (640 grams)
  • Bar pad sold separately

EVO bars help create confidence when riding!
Exceptional improvement in durability and major improvement of felt vibrations compared to stock bars. Confidence spiked on first few laps after install. Will be using EVO bars on all my bikes from now on!

A word on KTM/Husky handlebars for sub-mount steering dampers
The 3 bars you'll be interested in for sub-mount steering dampers is Carmichael, Husqvarna and Steering Damper Low. I did not like the Carmichael bend because it had too much sweep and was tipped too far back when in position on the bike and overall just did not feel right. The Husqvarna and SDL bars felt very similar when in position on the bike, and both very similar to the OEM KTM bars on my bike but 1" lower to account for the sub-mount damper. The Husqvarna bars felt just the slightest bit taller (actually 1.5 mm) and had just the slightest (almost not measurable) additional sweep. It also had the longest controls areas (even AFTER I cut 15 mm off each side) and therefore the shortest clamp area. I chose the Husqvarna bars because I thought they would better fit all of my controls (I add some additional stuff to my bars), and I don't need the longer clamp area because I run the BBR top clamps that my hand guards attach directly to, so I don't need clamping area for the inner hand guard clamp on my bars. IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO RUN CRM TYPE CYCRA hand guards, you should buy the Steering Damper Low bars so you will have room for the hand guard clamps in the clamping area.

Evo!
I had contours before and bent them falling in some rocks. This time I upgraded to Evos and so far they're great. Haven't noticed any more flex or less fatigue but they are comfortable and probably added 2 horsepower. I will continue to buy pro taper bars and grips.

My absolute fav bar for compact people!
These are my favorite handlebar and really help smaller framed riders feel more comfortable and have more control over the bike!
They really are worth the money and they look great too.

Really nice
I bought these to help with my wrist pain & arm pump. They have a nice flex compared to my stock renthal bars. A straiter and higher profile also has helped. I got the bronze color and it looks sweet.

Tipped bike in the sand and the bars bent on the first ride. Get something stronger.

Will an adapter kit be required for a DRZ 400e?
RANDALL P on Sep 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the stock size bars on that bike are 7/8" so you would need to purchase and adapter kit to fit the 1 1/8" bars.

Wandering if these bars come with a bar pad or do I order that separate?
Ethan S on Aug 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They did not come with a bar pad
Is there a difference in bar height if this is used with a gpr vs Scott’s stabilizer ?
James P on Feb 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: From just reading about it..... if you buy the gpr V4D it would raise the bars no more then .75 of an inch and if you buy the Scott stabilizer that is mounted under the bars you are looking at anywhere from .43-.98 of an inch in high difference. That is from both manufacturers websites. I do not own either of these but I am very interested in trying one out. I hope this helped.
I have a 2005 kx250f and I think they have the adapters it appears from 7/8 to 1 1/8 but not sure what the difference is in between like cr high bend and all the others?
Tommy J on May 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The different bends have to do with the bars width, height, and pull-back dimensions, which all vary depending on the type of bend. The CR high bend is my personal preference as I feel it provides the best control.
do they taper back to 7/8ths for grips and throttle tube?
Matthew G on Aug 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: My grips and everything fit like normal. on my bars
I have a 2016 YZ450FX do i need to buy a adapter kit to mount these handle bars? If so please recommend an adapter kit?
Thank You
Greg J on Jul 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you have factory 7/8" bars then you will need an adapter. I prefer the riser blocks that go from 7/8 to 1 1/8".
Do the ProTaper Evo bars with the Suzuki/KTM bend have the same height, rise, sweep and length specs as the OEM bars on a 2017 KTM 350 SXF?
Mario A on Jul 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I use this bar to compensate for an under bar steering damper
