Zevlin titanium valve stems converted to road bike handlebar plugs

Zevlin is a relatively new company whose primary products are athletic skin care items and extra wide handlebar tape. Those are cool, and they’re detailed after the break.

But any good entrepreneur is always tinkering, combining their various passions with business ideas. Zevlin’s mashup are these titanium handlebar plugs made from  valve stems out of a racing motocross bike. They’ve been raced, so this is their recycled afterlife. No pricing set, but they’re working on bringing them to market.

Zevlin chamois cream leg shaving lotion and body wash for cyclists and other athletes

The skin line includes two chamois creams, one with tingle and one without, a body wash and a shaving cream. All use natural ingredients and smell fantastic.

Zevlin Wide 40 mm 1-and-a-half-inch wide cork bicycle handlebar tape

The Wide 40 handlebar tape is extra wide at 40mm (1.5″) and is available in either an EVA/cork blend or Polyurethane/EVA blend that’s a bit grippier. They also do custom printed tape in as little as 10 rolls per order. Retail runs from $17 to $34.


  1. I like the way these guys think. The products they have out now are awesome. I can’t wait to see what else this new innovative company brings to market. I’ll be following Zevlin for sure.

  2. True the bar ends are understated, but they are also very light being Ti. One additional unique feature is no two are the same as they have been used in anger (as witnessed by the bent ones we also received) and came right out of a competition engine.

  3. Wow, these guys look like they’re a pretty cool company. I love the custom bar tape idea; since it’s so wide it’ll be easy to see what you got printed on there too. Definitely have these guys on my radar now!

  4. Has to be 3X the weight of a plastic plug.

    Titanium is NOT light..only compared to steel. It is much heavier than aluminum & multiple that of plastic or cf. The OD is too large also. Titanium is so..90’s.
