Details

Pro Vibe 7S Compact Handlebar

Rated 9/10for performance by RCUK (Road Cycling UK), the Pro Vibe 7S is a good-looking, purposeful 7075 aluminium handlebar that wouldn't look out of place on a £3,000 road or cross bike.

Like near any bar made today for better quality bikes, the Pro Vibe 7S Compact Handlebar measures 31.8mm diameter where it's clamped to the stem.

The Pro Vibe difference is that this 31.8 diameter continues all the way to the bends. For some riders, this wider bar is more comfortable than the more common design where the bar tapers so it's narrower where you would naturally hold onto the bar tops.

Making the whole bar wider diameter creates a business-like flex-free cockpit which gives a great feeling of assured control when your riding gets more spirited by reducing flex when you sprint for the finish line, or the 30MPH sign.

Another advantage of oversizing the bars is that Pro can spec a thinner wall thickness, to keep the bars light in weight and feel.

'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, which compact bars offer.

  • The Vibe 7S Bar's 31.8mm 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.
  • The full length 31.8mm design extends across the top of the bars to the bends.
  • For some riders, making the bar wider in diameter makes it more comfortable than the more common design where the bar tapers so it's narrower where you hold onto the bar tops.
  • Manufactured in aircraft grade 7075-series aluminium for assured reliability
  • Dual recessed grooves make it easy to neatly route both brake and gear cables so they run flush with the bars.
  • Manufacturer's published weight: from 285 grams.
  • Be aware that cycling equipment specifications can change without notice so please regard our published weights as an honest but approximate guide.
