I bought these in the Woods Low bend to replace the bars that were on my bike when I bought it. The previous bars were Pro Taper Contours in the Woods High bend that the previous owner shortened up a little too much for my taste. I like the low bend better, and now I have a little more room to set up my controls the way I like them. The only downside I found to the Pro Tapers is that they knurl the clutch lever side, and I like to use ODI lock on grips, so I have to sand off some of the knurling to make the grip work. Overall not really a big deal since you only have to do it once.

In 1991, Pro Taper introduced the 1-1/8-inch Taperwall handlebar and the industry hasn't been the same since. The Corona, CA based company expanded its product line to include clutches, sprockets and grips, among others, but Pro Taper never turned its back on what landed them in the motocross world.
The Pro Taper Contour Handlebar - Oversized is a best seller and made with the same quality as its Standard 7/8-inch Pro Taper brother, it's just, well, oversized! Check out the features that come with this solid beast and you'll understand why it's a must-have on the race course by riders like Nate Adams, Levi Sherwood and Robbie Maddison.

- Note: Pro Taper Contour Handlebars require the use of 1-1/8 inch oversized handlebar clamps (sold separately).
I have ran these on all of my past bikes. Why change a good thing for my newest bike. I can't wait to put them on. Brrrraaaaap!
Highly recommended handlebars: these oversized bars are so far super sturdy and feel great. Can't recommend Pro Tapers enough. Ordered: CR High
I put these on my 2015 KLR650 with Roxx anti-vibe risers and these were a perfect fit. No need for longer cables and they come up high enough to make stand up riding comfortable now.
Looks great, feels great.
these bars are a great fit on my 2015 raptor 700.
I recently installed this on my 2008 Suzuki DR650. The bar looks good and strong. I've only dropped the bike 3 times on soft muddy trails, so it didn't affect the bar at all. I expect it to survive drops that are much worse.
Although Renthal I would buy in a heartbeat, these pro taper bars tie when comparing because of the price. They hold up very well, haven't had an issue. If you r ballin on a budge, these are the way to go
Nice handlebars with good width. Been holding up well and have not bent yet.
These are amazing handle bars, bought the atv mid bend and they feel, look, and perform great, will buy again if they ever bend
Amazing bars, they hold up like no other. My steering stem bent before my bars did
Have been using Pro Tapers over 20 years. They takes spills that other bars can't . That simple .
Great bars have on both my bikes much better then stock worth the money
Best bars for the money have a pair for both of my bikes
Works good and makes my CRF450R handle much better.
I have been running pro taper for years and absolutely love them. Have hit these pretty hard on the ground and they usually with stand it. But every bar bends at some point in time.
Very strong bars the only time i have bent these it has resulted in broken bones. meaning they get the job done and as long as you don't break yourself chances tare these will still be good to go.
Excellent bars for woods riding. They never seem to bend when you hit a tree or fall in a creek. Recommend these bars to those individuals who have a hard time with bending bars after crashes or falling over.
I run Protaper cr highs on both my bikes. Ive crashed hard and the bars didnt bend even when my clamps did, a set of clamps are cheaper than a new handlebar though.
These are the strongest bars I've ever seen. Bar none. However 8 personally hate the looks of oversized bars, so if you don't mind the looks, they're definitely worth the cash if you want nothing but straight up durability!
