We decided to stock the Answer ProTAPER 720 to fill the need for a true all-mountain handlebar. Coming from the Moto side of the world, it's no surprise that the engineers at Answer tend to build stout products. The 720 is no exception. What you get is a bar that will not flex of fail under extreme pressure and rough environments with a small weight penalty (approx. +40 grams). The idea behind ProTAPER is to reinforce the areas of stress, like the taper and clamp areas while relieving the low stress areas to save weight. The fit and finish is superb and should hold up to plenty of abuse and still prove to look good after much use in the field.
The ProTAPER is available is two cosmetic options - natural gloss carbon with either white or gold graphics accents. We carry both styles. The rise of the bar is 12.7mm which puts it firmly in the low-rise category. Upsweep is 4° and backsweep is 8°
