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.
Too late to do any difference with carpal tunnel issues I have. And still getting use to the difference in the height etc but feeling less issues about the shoulders. This weekend with a 145km ride I should have a much more to say. At the moment very pleased with them
Hi Greg thank you for the positive feed back. I am sure with time you will find the bars more and more comfortable. 145kms is a good test and I am happy they proved their value. My main goal is to keep people riding as the health benefits are enormous. Let me know who you feel in a few months time. Zidaz
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.
Fantastic to hear the Eyropro handlebar has benefited you and is keeping you riding without so much discomfort. Yes, the Eyropro is a competitive price as we want more people to enjoy it's benefits. The Eyropro is the only patent protected top bar design featuring the ergo design. Anything matching our top bar design is just a copy. Not cool. I hope you continue to enjoy our bar's great design and health benefits.
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.
