Product Details

Pro PLT Compact Handlebar

The Pro PLT is a particularly well made lightweight compact drop handlebar for road bikes. 'Compact' refers to the reduced distance between the bar tops and the drops compared with traditional road bike bars. This design is generally favoured by most riders who prefer the less dramatic transition in riding position, compact bars offer.

  • The Pro PLT Bar's 31.8 mm clamp diameter has become the standard in handlebars over the past ten years because it increases strength and rigidity and reduces unwanted flex under high load.
  • Manufactured in 2014-series aluminium.
  • This high strength alloy is commonly used in the aircraft industry making it the ideal material for manufacturing a stronger, lighter weight, stiff, reliable handlebar.
  • For further weight reduction the aluminium has been double butted, keeping the strength where it is needed and reducing the wall thickness where vital grams can be saved
  • A single recessed groove facilitates neat cable routing
  • Manufacturer's published weight: from 245 grams.
  • Be aware that cycling equipment specifications can change without notice so please regard our published weights as an honest but approximate guide.

Pro overview
Pro is a Shimano brand dedicated to producing hardware that doesn't quite fit into Shimano's established transmission/brakes/hubs group sets: i.e. components such as seatpins, handlebars and stems.

Well named, Pro is the official supplier of Pro Tour cycling teams including Sky. These bars and stems and seatpins are therefore the result of real-life R and D at the cutting edge.

Best of all, Pro equipment is comparatively affordable, thanks to Pro's philosophy that you don't have to be a sponsored pro to afford the best equipment.
