BONTRAGER LINE PRO
CLAMP 35MM | STOCK WIDTH 820MM | RISE 15MM | UPSWEEP 4 | BACK SWEEP 9 | MATERIAL: CARBON
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.
