“Answer Protaper 720 Riser Bar”

The Good: 1. Incredible rise height, backs weep, width, and up sweep 2. Lightweight for an aluminum bar 3. Strong 4. Price

The Bad: Absolutely nothing

Overall Review:

When I first saw the ProTapers, I loved the looks and all of the angles seemed to add up to a madcomfortable bar. The first thing that is noticeable is how strong the bars are. I've ridden off of large drops and over scary rock gardens and there is no flex at all. The ProTaper technology really does make the bar stronger. The weight is respectable but if you are a weight weenie and you need under 250 grams, you might want to opp for the lighter but pricier carbon model (205-225 grams). All of the angles provide a comfortable and confidence inspiring bar. I have the 1" risers combined with a 60mm stem make for the ultimate all-mountain cockpit that I have dreamed of.

The ProTaper 720 is the quintessential all-mountain bar. Incredibly comfortable, strong, and fairly lightweight at a very reasonable price. What more do you want?
