Our friends at Curve Cycling in Melbourne didn’t think any of the existing handlebars on the market were quite the right width or shape, so late last year they decided to create their own. They designed their Walmer Bars to meet the specific demands of rugged gravel and off-road bikepacking, making sure they offered plenty of room to mount bags and accessories, a wide grip for added stability, and lots of hand positions.
For Collective Reward #052, two of our Bikepacking Collective members will win a set of Curve Walmer Bars in their choice of width. The Walmers come in four sizes, from 46m all the way up to a mega wide 60cm. All four models are made from the same Curve 6066 alloy and have a 31.8 clamp. Plus, they come with extra long bar tape. If you haven’t yet become a supporter of the site, join today and you’ll be entered to win this drawing, valued at $189 AUD / $112 USD.
