Handlebar Palsy and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Many riders experience to some degree handlebar palsy or in more severe cases carpal tunnel syndrome. Whilst the treatments can include a correct bike fit, padded gloves and extra bar tape no handlebar provides an anatomical top bar with the exception of the Eyropro.
Our many customers testify to the positive benefits of the top bar design. Click the link below to learn more about how the Eyropro could benefit you. After all we want you to be riding longer and further.
Bike Fitters Agree
The Eyropro handlebar design is just perfect. The unique top bar angles improve blood flow to the hands and help prevent sore shoulders. These bars are just perfect for climbing and longer rides.

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.

I was building my dream Ti bike and came across Eyropro bars. I thought anything that can help me up hills can't be a bad thing. The bars arrived and looked great. Fitted to to the bike and went for a ride. It took a couple of rides to become used to the unique angles of the bars. I found I was getting pressure points in my hands were I never noticed before. I modified the hand position to fit the bars and no more sore stiff neck,shoulders and hands. The bars are extremely stiff no discernible flex. Would I recommend these bars to anyone? Yes in a heartbeat. Once you adapt to the bars they are just the most comfortable bar I have ever ridden. Just like some one said if these were made by a mainstream bike manufacturer everyone would be on them. They are to my eye comfortable and the look great.
I have had the Eyropro bar fitted onto my CX bike for the last week and I must say they are really comfortable. Didn't take me long at all to get used to them, pretty much threw them into all my transitions from tarmac to trail through the woods across fields , even rode on the beach - all good. They are responsive and strong, which is always good as I like to feel my way through my offroad excursions. Nice and natural on the tops and the drops, these are definitely better than the standard bar they replaced, as a mountain biker learning CX I feel these will help and can recommend them heartily. Being comfortable riding is real important to me , esp if you going out on a long tab, not enough emphasis is put on bars in my opinion, If you are after a bar that is comfy , strong and responsive then you should have a go on these.
Test ride the bar in these conditions:
1. Flats for more than 80km - the stretch of the arm feels comfortable without the usage soreness to my shoulder, which some other bars don't work well.
2. UP slopes with 9 to 11 degree incline - amazingly relaxed body without leaning too upfront, reducing fatigue which usually zaps me much earlier before the peak!
3. Stiffness - Very well made! Not the slightest flexing felt.
My folks were sceptical about this but I know... it's plain jealousy they have because I could be the first few to use this wonderful bar in Singapore!!
Beautifully designed, whatever position you ride in, it feels perfect and natural. On the hoods -your hands are supported beautifully, when hands are straight in front, again, the angle fits perfectly with your natural hand & arm position and the drops are small enough to be ultra comfy but effective. I love them. Looking forward to years of long rides in comfort.
Have ridden twice on the road and three times on my trainer because of shoulder surgery.
Initially I didn't reposition anything, mounted the bars and away i went. Found that I need to turn the bars down about 15mm at the hoods and move my seat forward about the same. After that the riding comfort is great. Pushing pretty hard on the trainer doing both short and long duration intervals found the comfort was considerably better.
I will add to this once I can get out on the road in about 4 weeks when I'll be riding for 2hrs or so. I certainly would recommend them to anyone who asks. thanks heaps for a well thought out product.
When I first saw the Eyropros, I was drawn to the slanted profile of the tops which very much mimic motorbike handlebars. The design made sense to me in terms of comfort & posture through minimising elbow ‘bow out’ when on the tops.
My initial concern was the fitting of the computer mount, as u can see, the Garmin/Cycliq combo fit perfectly on the bar.
I’ve had the Eyropros for a little over 2 weeks now and have since clocked 250km with them both tested in long rides and hill training.
Apart from the fact that I did not experience any numbness (where on traditional bars I would constantly get numb wrists/palms), I like 2 particular areas on the Eyropros.
One of which is the wide 90deg bend towards the hoods which gave me more surface area to rest my forearms when i get to a low position with my hand covering the hoods and elbows at a 90deg angle. The other is the kink at the tops put my thumbs in a more natural position. With a straighter elbow my position is now more upright and somehow made climbs a little easier. Plus they look great on the bike as well!
