Eighteen years ago Easton altered the face of motorcycle performance when we designed and engineered the sport’s first aluminum TaperWall™ oversized handlebar. Simply put, there was no other handlebar like it. With the introduction of the oversized 1-1/8’ TaperWall™ handlebar, riders of all skill levels discovered a new performance advantage in this critical part of a motorcycle’s anatomy.
While Easton’s original handlebar has capably aged in the interim, off-road motorcycle technology, like the sport itself, has greatly evolved. The GOAT has come and gone. Four-strokes now rule the day. For Easton engineers, the time spent with the original design has been like an eternity. Watching from the sidelines at the Big ‘A’, cruising through the pits at Glen Helen, and watching in disbelief at the X-Games, our engineers knew it was time for a change. So back to the drawing board they went.
The mission was to create a new standard by designing not just the world’s best handlebar, but the world’s best handlebar system. To achieve their goal they used every drop of knowledge from their rich history of engineering stretching back many, many decades to their establishment way back in 1922... so, after years of design and testing the Easton EXP™ was born.
