Walmer Drop Handlebars by Curve Cycling
Designed in Melbourne Australia
Walmer Bars are designed to service the rigours and demands of rugged gravel and off-road bikepacking. No handlebar on the market was the right width or shape, so we decided to create our own.
Walmer Bars bring the stability and control of MTB bars combined with the multiple hand positions of drop bars. The extra width also offers more storage space for bar mounted bags, lights, navigation etc.
Why Wide Drop Bars?
The ability to change hand position regularly prevents pressure and tension build up, and helps minimise numbness and blisters. A wider handlebar also offers more stability and control, particularly when descending sketchy terrain on a loaded bike. It also gives added leverage when tackling technical climbs.
What’s with the Name?
Breathe in! Named after a narrow pedestrian/cycle bridge on the Yarra River in Melbourne. There's little room for anything else if Walmer Bars are crossing.
What's in the box

|Extra Long Bar tape||Made for Curve by Velo, this tape is anti-slip and 3.2mm thick for shock reduction.|
Influenced by MTB bar design, we've integrated 7° of sweep to the flat section. This shortens the reach to your hoods to counteract the wide grip.
