Answer ProTaper Handlebars Get Shiny New Colors, Graphics

2013 Answer ProTaper mountain bike DH AM and XC handlebars in new colors and graphics

Answer’s ProTaper aluminum handlebars get all new color combos and graphics for 2013.

“As always, we work closely with our riders in the development of new colors and graphics,” says Tom Porter, answer product manager. “This latest series was inspired by vintage F1 and dirt track racing.”

The bars are all made of 7050 aluminum and use their ProTaper design to put more wall thickness at stress points and clamp areas. They’re available in six new color combinations (what, no purple?!?). Sizes include 780mm DH, 720mm All Mountain and 685mm Cross Country.

All bars are made of lightweight durable 7050 series aluminum and feature ProTaper technology—putting material where a rider needs if for stiffness and strength in the clamp area and tapering to save weight.

These, along with everything else they make, are available now through their website and in stocking dealers.
