ProTaper Returns as Official Handlebar of EnduroCross for 2018


Innovative handlebar brand showcasing latest products

IRVINE, CA – July 13, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  ProTaper created the original 1 1/8th inch handlebars that have now become the dominant style for motocross and off-road motorcycles. ProTaper is also the choice of Colton Haaker and the Rockstar Husqvarna Factory Racing team, as well as many of the other top pro and support class racers at EnduroCross. The brand will return as the official handlebar of EnduroCross for 2018 and will host the popular ProTaper foot race around the EnduroCross track during intermission. The six-race series will kick off on August 25th in Prescott Valley, Arizona.

“EnduroCross tracks are brutal with the rocks, logs and Matrix, in particular, causing havoc and testing our products to the limit,” said Paul Perebijnos, the ProTaper Brand Manager. “We have been a partner with EnduroCross for several years now and feel that it is a great series to showcase ProTaper products. We can’t wait for the 2018 season to get started.”
