Sustainable and environmentally friendly materials

We use bamboo 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 bamboo (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 bamboo it is… Ride on.

Review: New Zealand made Passchier Gump bamboo handlebars will smooth your ride

Handlebar buzz can be one of the biggest niggles to solve on a bike. You could shop around buying one aluminium handlebar after the next to see if one feels softer or nicer.


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.
