ProTaper is Back

ProTaper is back. An iconic brand in mountain biking has returned and is enthusiastic about launching products that celebrate its past in addition to creating products that usher in the future for mountain biking componentry.

That celebration includes new carbon offerings with a lightweight solution for the most demanding disciplines.

The ProTaper carbon bars feature PFL (plastic foam lamination) manufacturing technique. It adds efficiency into the overall manufacturing process. Such a process allows for the reduction in necessary resin and carbon laminate, which then translates into a 15% lighter bar with respect to traditional manufacturing techniques…while maintaining extreme strength for even the roughest terrain or rider.

The ProTaper A25 is like the first ProTapers released in 1997 in Leigh Donovan’s championship bike (I remember that). It great to see iconic brands like this given new life. Ask a shop near you about an A25 or the carbon version for your whip.
