Designed in Melbourne
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.
Originally intended to complement the new GMX+ bikepacking platform, Walmer Bars also work with any gravel bike or off-road beast. 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.

Which size should I get?
Use your bike size as a guide for drop-bar 29er rigs. The 40, 43 & 46 go well with road/endurance road bikes. The 46/46BP and 50/50BP go well on gravel bikes. The 50/50BP, 55 & 60 go well on 29er drop bar mountain bike platforms.
Can I double wrap these?
Of course, you can. Some will triple! Make sure you keep the extra-long tape aside for the final layer.
