Sea Otter 2011 – Answer Products – ProTaper XC Trail Handlebars

by Brian Mullin on April 22, 2011

Answer had their new ProTaper XC Trail handlebars on display, and the 7050–T series aluminum alloy bars come in a vast array of colors and three height versions. They aren’t the lightest bars, but they have a good price point at $65, lots of color options and sizes, and are strong and durable. They come in wild set of colors, including Black, Brunette, Green, Red, Mango and Pink Petal.
The Pink Petal is supposed to be a ladies’ version, using pink anodization with black flowers. After the Sea Otter Ladies’ Day controversy, the manly men can choose the color scheme and graphics if they want?

They are 685mm wide, and come in flat, and 1/2 inch and 1 inch rise versions, weighing 235 grams (flat) and 265 grams.
