PRO is not a brand most of us are familiar with, but trust us, Shimano's component line is huge in Europe. The PRO Vibe 7S compact handlebar are a favorite among the peloton, and can be found on bikes ridden by many pro tour riders. Why? Because they're not quite as light as carbon fiber, but the AL7050 aluminum construction won't splinter into a million sad little pieces in the event of a crash. These are stiff, burly bars that have the chops for climbing and sprinting. The full oversized clamp area extends all the way to the hoods, so you get a fully, more ergonomically correct area to put your hands when on the flats. The compact shape makes it easier for those who need less reach or a shorter drop on their handlebars to get a good fit. They're also great for riders with smaller hands.
Top shelf AL7050 construction makes these bars stiff yet also lightweight
Integrated dual cable routing for brake and shift cables makes set up and a clean build easy
Comfortable anatomical bend design makes it easy on the wrist and shoulders
Oversized clamp area extends across the entire bar flat so you have more real estate to grab hold of when climbing
Compact geometry makes means there's less reach and a shallower drop for riders who need a smaller shaped bar
