    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

CR High Pro Taper Evo is an excellent choice.
6' rider needed a better and taller bar. The CR High allowed me to stand in comfort. Easy install. Pro Taper adapters for the larger bar but required I relocate my key switch. Easy fix and have the dash a nice clean look. Super fast shipping as well.

-m-2008--
The install was easy and fast.  The bars and adapters added height needed for standing
The old bars and grips were good but it was time to go with something better.

High quality aluminum, feather light.
These Pro Taper Evo bars are very high quality. A higher grade of aluminum than the contour series. Fewer color options than the contour series. Very high quality and light bars.

They just aren't what they used to be
I have been buying ProTapers for a while and these last 2 sets have just been sub par. I dont know what they did but they simply are not as strong as they used to be. I was going into a left hand corner and tipped towards the inside and when i picked up my bike i didnt even consider the possibility of them bending but lo and behold the left side was slightly bent back towards me, and this was their first ride! what a waste of money. I remember in the days when your bike would cart wheel and the only thing not bent was your protapers. I wont be buying these bars anymore. time to try the Fatbars or the new vortex stuff. RIP ProTaper

If they bend, you'll be too jacked up to notice
Beefy! Magnesium is more like a metallic brown but it's a unique color and you get used to it. Great fit. Now the bike finally fits me.

You should know that these bars are top quality
The main reason i buy these for all my bikes is that they reduce arm pump and flex without bending in bad crashes.

Pro Taper Evo Handlebar
These are great! Totally make the bike more fun to ride and improve position and control. I just installed them on three of the bikes we ride with and all very pleased. Would also say that you need to wrap some electrical tape around bar where controls mount to keep from spinning as you do not use the locator pins that are on the controls from the factory. Pro taper grip glue very hard to get throttle tube grip on as it is lightning fast to set.

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: There is no upper crossbar to mount a pad to. you will have to buy a add on upper bar and clamp it on . Then mount a 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.
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".
