This handlebar is an absolute game changer for me, I have a disability and I find conventional handlebars very difficult to use. The hand position on the tops of the handlebars is absolutely perfect and comfortable. It works really well with internal routing of the brake cables. It also works very well with satellite shifters from an electronic group. Said very pleased with my purchase. Excellent customer service, I would really recommend doing business with this nice chap from Australia.
I have only ridden 2-300km so far (longest just under 3h) and can say they have helped with my hands on the tops, hoods and drops. Still have some neck pain but this is likely due to a chronic postural issue but I can say the onset of this discomfort is delayed and the pain less intense than when using standard bars.
I do plan on getting another bar for my other bike, if I have no issues over the next few weeks, so that is probably the best indicator that these bars are quality and the design works.
I was a very competitive cyclist many years ago before a MVA changed my life forever & caused some major mobility problems. I got back on to the bike but after minimal time my shoulders were in immense pain. Daz for months tried to get me to try out the Eyropro bars but I always made a lame excuse cause I am a pure traditionalist cyclist who doesn't like change..... but by HELL I was wrong & wish I had made the switch when I was 1st told about it....
Nearly 12months after the switch.... I am still not sold on the looks.... but I am never changing back to normal handlebars..... you never know.... I may even try the Flared Eyropro bars on a new ride....
These are some seriously good looking handlebars.
On a Gravel Bike, they feel amazing. A lot more control than standard drops.
Well worth buying.
Just like the road version, these bars allow your arms to be placed into their natural position, removing pain from your shoulders.
On the gravel, these bars allow you to grip in and bite through gravelly/rocky corners with confidence. My bars are on a Cannondale Slate which has a Lefty and 650b tyres. With the suspension from the lefty, the 6)0b tyres and the Eyropro flared bars, I scream with delight while flying down gravel hills and through the corners. They just give you a confident feeling which multiplies your fun.
These are a must have item on gravel bikes.
Fitted my 2020 Allez Sprint with the Eyropro Gravel Bar. Previously had the Original Eyropro for 2 years and loved it. I ride mostly road mixed in with gravel here and there. I'm really liking the flared feel of this handlebar. Riding and sprinting in the drops feels like a perfect fit. My first initial feel, was added comfort, with the feeling of extra control. When you are deep in the drops, the levers are right there. Switching gears on the hoods or in the drops is much easier with the angle it puts the levers. I find myself riding in the drops more. I can be aero and put out power for an extended time. Sprinting out of the saddle in the drops, you can really get on it. These are not some flimsy feeling handlebars. These are 215g and solid!! I feel like I can ride all day on these, and I do!
After a 20 year hiatus from biking, I got back into it hard last year. Started with 10 miles (Who am I kidding, I started by climbing the hill in front of my house for a week) and progressed to a 60 mile ride. The only problem I've had - aside from strengh and endurance - was my numb hands, wrists and arms. I probably went thru 10 pair of riding gloves, a couple rolls of tape before I came across the Eyropro bars. I am a big guy and I wanted the 440mm width, but they were still in production at the factory. I went ahead and placed the order with a 6 week promise. 6 weeks later, I got them in! I had my bike shop install them so I could have internal cable routing, hydraulic brakes bled and a solid fit. During the install, I ran into two minor issues - the bars take more tape than a normal set (makes sense since there is more area to hold onto) and the mm markers for the brake levers were off from level by a couple MM. (glad the shop laid a level across the brakes when they installed em!). I had no problem fitting my Garmin outfront mount on the new bars which was a minor concern, but I was glad when I didn't have to buy one more thing to make the change...
But the rides have been amazing. NO hand pain. I'm hoping to get a legit 100 MILE century in this year and I can focus on things like food and where to ride instead of how to compensate for my hand and wrist pain.
Could not be happier. Its too basic and brilliant not to become the new normal.
I like to experiment with my bike fit pretty regularly, so I decided to give the Eyropro handlebars a try based on the glowing reviews mainly citing better comfort while riding on the tops. I absolutely love them. They make riding on the tops exponentially more enjoyable whether on the flats or climbing, as they've improved my ergonomic position and my sense of control. I also like how the tops combined with the classic C-shape of the drops look as a whole. They're my first set of carbon bars, and I find that they are excellent at reducing road vibrations and are significantly lighter than the aluminum bars that I had been using. The shape of the tops do force you to get a bit creative with how you mount lights and computers (not a bad problem to have), and there are plenty of options on the market to fulfill this need, some of which are listed on this site. I can't wait to see what iterations of the Eyropro Zidaz comes up with next.
Been riding about 5000 miles/year for 40 years now. Recently cut back on work and increased my mileage to 150 miles/wk, which exacerbated bilateral finger numbness to the point I couldn't ride much. Adjusting my stem and old handlebars helped about 25%, the Eryopro bar has reduced the numbness after 120 miles of riding by about 95%. Took about 3 weeks for the bars to come over from Australia. It was easy to route the hydraulic lines through the bars. Significantly less expensive than an unnamed American company which appears to have blatantly copied the design (won't mention the company; see the Cycling Tips reviews for Eyropro) Hope you win in the courts!. I was skeptical about some of the claims, but I would be reluctant to ride without them now.
After 10 years I’ve been doing ultra endurance ride, like Paris-Brest-Paris 1200km or self supported TransIberica bike race 3640km
I first tested the Eyropro bars on a short 500km ride and it enough to realise that the bars were perfect designed to avoid pain on wrist, arms, shoulder or neck.
The last “transiberica” race I crashed around the km600, cranking rim and twisting both brake shifts, the bars survived after that impact dropping mountain at 60km/h
Thanks to that and the ergonomics of the bars no pain during the race I finished in 3rd position
If you looking for a tough and light bar that respects your body to impacts this is in my opinion the best bars you can mount on your bike.
I have only had the chance to do a short ride with the new bars but I am very impressed. The bars were solid to the touch and fitted my hands better than the small diameter bars they replaced. They put the arms in a natural position when climbing, other positions were very comfortable as well. I will have another review once I have got some more k's into them. Quick impression was very positive.
I purchased my bars on Wednesday and they arrived on Thursday 1 day later. They were fitted that afternoon. I have the Park Tool Internal Cable Routing Kit IR-1.2, a definite bonus making threading the cables very simple. Friday had 2 test rides to check all was correct and set up for myself. The next day, Saturday was a 217k Audax ride with near on 3000M of ascent. I found the riding on the tops up hill and with a tailwind just so comfortable. My hands, wrists and forearms aligned in a more ergonomic way reducing any tension dramatically, making for a more comfortable ride. The only numbness felt was in my left hand where I’d had surgery a year ago, but this was only temporary. I also found riding on the hoods more pleasurable than on my standard bars. This position for myself is usually only used when riding in the standing position. In the drops was the same as with a standard set of bars. I’m usually only in the drops going down hill, so no real problem there. I thought the 42cm bars would be a problem as that was the largest size available. I normally opt for 44cm bars. Again no problem, they just worked and at no time did they feel to narrow or uncomfortable for me.
I think the only negative was fitting my Garmin Edge 1030 out front mount, there just isn’t enough room. I overcame this with a file, removing some of the material on the Edge mount. I now have a securely fitted mount and all is good.
Would I recommend them? You bet I would. They most definitely made my first long ride much more comfortable and I believe that as I adjust more and more to them they will feel even better. I can see myself ordering a second set for my other bike in the not to distant future.

I have been using these for 5 months. 3-4 time a week. Desert flats in Dubai, mountains of Spain, mixed terrain in Mallorca. Europe. Midwest USA.
I came across them on Instagram. The shape made sense. I gave them a shot.
Shipping to Dubai, no problem. Good contact and follow up with the company.
Lots to say:
- the tops put you in an ergonomic position for climbing. Easy on the wrists. Elbows in. Easy on the back. Better breathing.
- the reach to the hoods is the same as any other bar of equivalent reach/drop. Only the top bend is different.
- quality made in a reputable factory in Taiwan, with good quality control. The finish inside the bar is smooth, allowing for easy cable routing.
-Carbon. But not too stiff. There are stiffer carbon bars, but that’s not the point of these (IMO). Long haul comfort for a good day (s) in the saddle.
- I’m using a Zipp Speed SL stem and SRAM Red Etap levers. They set up like any other bar. Smooth transition from bars to lever. Use a torque wrench.
-only currently available in 42cc
- center, stem clamp section is narrow. A typical K-Edge computer mount (or similar) will not fit in the space. I use a stem face computer mount from F3 Cycling. Or, just keep using your stem-top mount.
-The bar’s top section shape makes mounting clip-on bars difficult, if not impossible.
- the drops only have one shape currently, a classic bend. A shallow bend type would be a welcome alternative.
Looking for a comfortable climbing position on the tops? These are the bars you need.

I'm not an athlete even in my own imagination but I do love riding as hard and as long as I am capable. Sadly my back didn't get the memo from my brain that I'm really still 18 and my enjoyment waned as my aching back stole a lot of the pleasure especially on longer rides and touring. I tried a shorter stem, and inching my seat forward helped a teensy bit but with these bars I can honestly say it's lifted a shroud I didn't know was there. Like a cat in a sun-room I still need a good stretch now and then but 15 years have evaporated overnight. I can't pin down technically why, I just know I feel great riding again.
Stunning build quality and super light weight to compete with the best the world has to offer.
I have used generally aero and wing shaped bars in the past and always liked them, but was keen to try the Eyropro on a new build I was doing. I have to say they are incredibly comfortable especially when climbing (lets just say I am more built for speed). I have found the bars are super comfy when your on longer climbs and just allows to you to concentrate on rhythm rather than constantly changing hand positions to get comfortable. I also love the look of them and the shape. Just fantastic that something so good is designed in our own back yard of Australia. The bars are world class. Enough Said.
