We wanted to create a flat bar that could be used in place of a drop bar, yet still have comparable reach without compromising handling. The bends in the bar are designed to optimise positioning and keep body weight in front of the stem, whereas the sweep-back helps keep the hands' position from being too far forward. The nature of the sweep-back also means that when converting from a drop bar to the Remlaw Bar, the same length stem can be used without detriment to handling as the hands will be in a similar position (See diagram below).
Designed to work with either our GXR (Kevin) or GMX+ bikes, this bar can also be utilised as a general standalone bar on other adventure-style bikes. Being flat the Remlaw Bar provides a comfortable, easy-to-use bar that is ideal for any bikepacking or touring adventure.
The bar's central oversized section and curves have ample room for feedbags, front rolls, and aerobars to be attached to the bars. The curves in the bar also aid with clearance when out of the saddle, so your knees will be safe and free to pedal without obstruction!
Take the word Remlaw. Reverse it. What do you get? That's right! Walmer. You really don't want to know what other ideas were put forward!

|Will the Remlaw Bar fit my bike?||If your bike was designed as a drop bar set up, the Remlaw Bar will fit! If you are unsure, why not get in contact with us.|
|What grips can I use?||Any industry-standard 22.2 mm handlebar grip for flat bar or mountain bike bars can be used. You can also use normal bar tape if you prefer. The same measurement is used for standard brake/gear shifter clamps for mountain bikes, also.|
|Does the Remlaw Bar come in different sizes?||The Remlaw Bar come in one size. However, should you want a narrower bar you can cut them down to size. The bar comes with 5 mm marked increments to aid measurement. Please accurately measure and double check before cutting. Your local bike shop should gladly help you to cut the bars as needed.|
|Does the Remlaw Bar come in a riser version?||Not at this stage. Being flat, it gives riders maximum versatility in bar positioning.|
