Treks’ Bontrager Line Pro is im­pres­sively light and equally stiff. A han­dle­bar like this is tes­ta­ment to what you can do with car­bon. Bontrager have de­vel­oped a bar that would not be out of place on an XC bike when it comes to weight. With only a 15mm rise and a very small amount of up­sweep the Line Pro is a very neu­tral feel­ing bar that does not re­ally scream out its ag­gres­sive qual­i­ties. This bar is stiff and with its 35mm bar clamp it’s no sur­prise. It would be in­ter­est­ing to com­pare Bontrager’s Race X Lite bar to the Line Pro bar to see how stiff and how much feed­back a rider gets from the trails to gain a real idea of what you can do with car­bon man­u­fac­ture. At times the Line Pro was per­haps a lit­tle too stiff when a rider was tired and the low up­sweep caused some fa­tigue on rid­ers hands on longer rougher trails.
