The Jones 2.5 touring, bikepacking specific double butted handlebar has arrived! With double butted aluminum the bar has two different thicknesses, thicker at the joints for strength and thinner elsewhere to reduce weight. The bar makes a great upgrade from a traditional flat or riser (mtb style) or a drop bar, and offer a wide range of comfortable, useful, and unique hand positions that allow you to change your body position while riding. This allows you to ride longer, more comfortably, and with greater control! The Jones H-Bars have 45 degrees of sweep to put your wrists in a natural position, and are designed to be used with longer grips which fill the entire grip area, thereby giving access to the full range of hand positions that make the H-Bars so special. Please refer to the H-Bar Manual for more information on fit, setup, and installation.
The Jones 2.5 H-Bar is designed especially for those riders who need or want to get the grip area of their handlebars higher without having to use steerer tube extenders. They have the same great hand positions, sweep, and wide range of light, computer, and bag mounting locations as the rest of the Jones Loop H-Bars. The Jones SG 2.5 Aluminum Loop H-Bar is the perfect upgrade for any bike that will give a wide range of comfortable and useful hand positions, lots of mounting locations, and 2.5" of rise for a more comfortable touring position! Black. 710mm. 31.8 mm stem clamp. 650 grams.
For proper instalation and comfort please view H-Bar Manuel, we also recommend that the H-Bars be purchased with a set of grips because the grips are key to getting the most out of the H-Bars. Recommended grips can be found here: Kraton H-Grips
The Jones 2.5 H-Bar is identical to the standard Jones SG Aluminum Loop H-Bar with these exceptions:
2.5" of rise (versus the standard .5" rise).
Rear crossbar swoops down to the stem clamp to allow for the extra rise.

I purchased the the Jones bars and the matching Jones grips for my new Salsa Journeyer. I prefer an upright position for both afternoon gravel rides and long-distance bike travel. With a longer stem and the 2.5 rise on the Jones bars I accomplished the comfortable upright position. I was seeking. I really like the multiple hand positions the grips offer and multiple places to attach lights, etc. My next investment will be purchasing a Surly Moloko handlebar bag which also fits the Jones bars nicely. I highly recommend these bars if your needs similar or match mine.
Love my Jones’s Bars!

I installed the Jones bar and matching Jones grips on my new Salsa Journery that came with a flat handlebar. I prefer an up right position while touring and with a riser stem and the 2.5 rise of the Jones bar I’m a very happy riding this bike for hours. I like the wider bar snd multiple hand positions the Jones grips offer me as well. If you prefer an upright riding position, I highly recommend the Jones handlebar with Jones grips combination.
