As frames continue to change and improve, the components we attach to them need to follow suit. Today Pro presents five new handlebars, a stem, and two new dropper post sizes to suit a wider variety of modern bikes and riders.
Pro Tharsis 3Five Carbon Handlebar
The latest carbon handlebar options in the Pro lineup include a Flat, Flat top, Minrise, and Highrise option. Each of the bars features a different width, back up, and up sweep appropriate for its intended use, and they all use a 35mm stem clamp diameter.
- The Flat model is 720mm wide with 9° back sweep 0° up sweep, weighing 120 grams.
- The Flat Top bar has a 5mm rise at 740mm width with 9° back sweep and 0° up sweep, and weighs a reported 125 grams.
- The Minirise bar is 780mm wide with a 9° back sweep and 4° up sweep, weighing 180 grams.
- The previously released 3Five Rise is 800mm wide with a 9° back sweep, a 4° upsweep, and a 20mm rise.
- The new Highrise bar is identical to the Rise, except for the taller 30mm rise.

Pro Tharsis 3Five alloy stem
Pro also has a new stem to complete the control panel, with a 35mm clamp and +/-9° of drop or rise. The handlebar holder is made of 7050 forged alloy, and comes in lengths between 60 and 100mm for $100.
Tharsis Dropper Posts
The Pro Tharsis dropper post is now available in a 100mm length for gravel bikes and shorter travel bikes alike. Pro says that the posts’ oval shaft prevents side to side movement, while the two-bolt head design keeps things light at just 415 grams. This short travel dropper comes in 27.2, 30.9, and 31.6mm diameters. This new post retails for $330.
The brand also extended their trusty 150mm Koryak dropper to a 34.9 diameter to fit more frames. This thicker dropper retails for $300.
Finally, Pro has a shiny new eMTB handlebar that integrates the information display in a convenient location, at the center of the integrated stem and handlebar combo. The E-Performance handlebar communicates directly with the Shimano STEPS eMTB system to share all of the info you need during a ride.
The bar comes in an 800mm width, with an effective 49mm stem length due to the back sweep design. It also features a sloping 20mm rise, and an 11-degree back sweep. Check with your local Pro dealer for additional info and pricing.
