The ultimate in bike riding comfort
These handcrafted, bamboo laminated beauties give the rider a comfortable experience never felt before. With a slight amount of flex the rider has reduced jarring and a more relaxed ride, allowing you to ride on and on…
Wherever the ride takes you…

We use wood as it offers greater durability and natural flex than traditional handle bar materials, such as aluminium alloy, steel and carbon fibre. These flex and durability properties are as a result of the tree being exposed to the elements and waving around at everyone, at the hint of a breeze. This is the tree’s equivalent of exercising and gaining strength, not unlike people going to the gym and biking.
In addition to this, the tree’s natural cellulose structure absorbs vibrations naturally, which is exactly what you’re after when you’re riding local trails, gravel roads and undulating road surfaces. So with this attribute, handle bars which is the main point of contact, is the perfect bike component to be made of wood (certainly the riders bum has plenty of contact with the seat, however we considered this to be a bad idea!)
So handle bars made of wood it is… Ride on.
A tamed version of the Gump 760. Built to accommodate the town cruiser that wants comfort and manouverabilty through tricky traffic. These have the same 22° as the Gump 760, but being shorter you’re less likely to shoot past your desired destination and will quite possibly end up at your local café or bar.
Built to ISO strength standards
The good lads at Kiwi Mechanical Laboratory created a machine to test the strength and resilience of Passchier’s in all possible urban, trekking and trail settings.
Passchier is dedicated to running a sustainable operation from start to finish, production to packaging.
Right from our raw ingredient bamboo – a fast growing, sustainable natural fibre whose carbon footprint is nothing in comparison to other man made materials, to our recyclable cardboard packaging and natural wood wool protection, we strive to use environmentally friendly methods as much as possible during every step.
