    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

Strong, look great and durable
Love these EVO bars...I have had a couple of sets of these over the years and I am always pleased. If your looking for bars without a crossbar and still want a little bit of feedback through the bars then these are the ones for you. The 7/8's bars are way too flexible for me and don't hold up well to even slow speed tip overs etc. Crossbar style is just too stiff for me, where the EVO provides the right amount of flex with a ton more durability than smaller bars. Plus they look awesome as well.

Amazing bars.
These bars were already amazing, but with the right bend and fitment, just never want to stop riding.

Great control area
Great bend and large control area. i.e. there is heaps of room to get your levers mounted inwards. Requires less pressure to pull the levers and reduces chances of snapping the levers.

Keefer Recommended
I tried this bar after hearing Kris Keefer recommend it on his podcast. It feels like it has pretty good vibration absorption and has a nice bend and sweep to it. I'm pretty comfortable with it standing or sitting through corners. Glad I tried it.

Steering Damper Low - Perfect
I have a sub-mount and found the stock bar to be uncomfortably high, in part because I'm a shorter rider. Bought these bars and they were a perfect fit. I was a little worried about the fit of accessory attachments as, at fits look it seemed like it would be tight, but when all was install, everything fit great. These things change my position just enough that comfort has been restored at a pretty reasonable price.

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
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
These fit Honda’s right? I tried to select my bike 2006 crf450x and it’s not listed
A shopper on Sep 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It won’t fit your stock bar mounts. You need 1 1/8” bar mounts for these to fit. These are fat bars.
will these bars fit the stock ktm risers on 2018 ktm 300xcw ?
Kraig n on Jul 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: These are 1 1/8” big bars. I ride Suzuki, so I’m not really sure about KTM. You’d have to measure your bars at the triple clamp to really know if they’re 1 1/8”
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
Is there a difference in bar height if this is used with a gpr vs Scott’s stabilizer ?
Jimmy 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 the Protaper Husqvarna Stock bars and the OEM Husqvarna (TC 125) bars have the same bend?
A shopper on Mar 25, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I've owned both bikes and have often asked that question too... i am told the protaper is what the fast guys change to from the stock KTM bars. I like the bars and combined them with the ODI super soft clamp on grips

What bend is closest to a 2017 yz125 stock bend?
A shopper on Mar 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The evo bars we bought are a Ricky Carmichael bend, the bend in the bar is a not as high as the stock bend that comes on the bike. The bars seem flatter across therefore making them lower.
Will these work with bark busters from a 7/8th bar? Or is the taper to far up?
kyle k on Jul 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I'm not really sure on that. I don't use bark busters. I would think they would. Look and see if bark busters make the bar mount bigger for the bigger bar or read their description. Hope this helps
Will these work with lock on grips? Some bars with the knurled clutch side won’t accept lock on grips
JORDAN S on Mar 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: you will have to sand down the gnarling on the clutch side of the bar.or you will need to twist the the grip on to the bar and it will hallow out the inside enough to pass over the gnarling.
Will I get a lower position with this handlebar? Is there a lot of difference from the stock bike (Ktm 350 EXC-F 2019 SixDays)?
Carlos D on Feb 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: That depends on the bend you pick. On ProTapers site and maybe on here you can compare all the measurements, most were higher than stock KTM bars when I researched.
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".
Will this fit on yamaha raptor 700 2008 year?
Emi T on Sep 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: As long as your bar clamps are 1 1/8", yes they can work.
Will an adapter be needed for the 2020 yz250x? And what bend is the stock bars I really like those?
JOHN H on Aug 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: 2020 YZ 250x comes with big bars from the factory. We do not have stock handle bar measurements but here is a link to all the different sizes. https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/rm-rider-exchange/handlebar-information/
