The new Jones SG Loop H-Bar uses the same great design as our standard Loop H-Bar, but is available at a lower price by using straight-gauge aluminum tubing in place of the custom-butted tubing on the standard Loop H-Bar.  Jeff wanted to make a Loop H-Bar that would allow more riders to experience the superior comfort, control, and utility of his Loop design without making it any less dependable and useful.  He accomplished this by switching to less-expensive straight-gauge aluminum tubing.  The result is an H-Bar that is just as strong as ever, but which weighs 100g more than the standard version and costs $40 less.

Colors

Black or Silver:

Black is bead-blasted and black anodized for a shiny, lightly-textured finish.

Silver is bead-blasted and clear anodized for a shiny, but not polished, lightly-textured finish.

All Jones H-Bars use a 31.8mm stem clamp diameter, 22.2mm clamp size for controls (standard mountain bike style).  The entire front loop has a 22.2mm diameter.

The Loop H-Bar has the same hand, stem and brake lever position as the original H-Bar but the cross bar sweeps forward to allow the levers to go behind the cross bar instead of in front. This gives longer uninterrupted hand positions and will allow trigger and grip/twist shifters to fit on the rearward extensions (unlike the original H-Bar and the Cut H-Bar). The continuous front loop of the bar enhances stiffness and is good for additional aero hand positions and mounting lights, GPS devices etc. This bar provides comfort and power with an impressive weight. With the levers in the optimum position the rider is superbly placed for fast riding while still enjoying all the hand positions available. The rearward extensions allow extra leverage and a wider hand position - be it for comfort or power. All H-bars are for a 31.8 stem. 

Refer to the H-Bar Manual for set-up tips!

Also we highly recommend checking out our selection of grips and bar tape specifically designed for the 710mm and 660mm H-Bars.

Great for; Singlespeeds, 29ers, Fat Bikes, Touring, Bike-packing Adventures, City Riding and more!
Compatible with; Singlespeeds, Trigger shifters, Gripshift, Shimano twist shifters, Rohloff and above the bar hinged thumb-shifters.

    H Loop Bars

    Posted by Roger C on 12th Sep 2018

    300 Kilometer review.
    At first I wasn't so sure about these bars, I was still getting sore hands after and hours ride. That was much better than the stock ones my Giant Roam 3 that I installed them on. But I was hoping to have no pain. Turns out it was all in the adjustment. I had them tilted too low and I gradually raised them up. Took a number of weeks but I have about 150 K on the last setup and I have to say the bars have cured my sore hands. I have been on a couple of 2.5 hour rides and there was a bit of fatigue but no numbness.

    These bars look beautifully crafted and with the long grips they make a striking addition to the bike's appearance. A bit of a tight fit with the Roam's combined shifter / brake lever setup but everything worked out just fine. Can access brakes from any where on the grips and the shifters on the right are perfect and the front shifters on the left bar just clear the bars and grips and there is no interference in their operation.

    Very happy with the purchase and if I ever sell the bike I'll be keeping the bars ha ha.

    This bar has a lot of hand positions and room for accessories. I like the using the end of the bars for comfort and the middle of the bars for a more aero riding position. I will be getting a shorter stem as recommended. Nice bars at an affordable price.

    Just Do It

    Posted by Bryan on 31st Aug 2018

    I replaced a garage full of bikes with two E-MTBs with plus-sized tires, and this caused my wife and I to spend significantly more time riding. We ride faster, much further, and I finally got her to ride some off-road trails. The one downside of riding more was the discomfort we felt in our necks, arms, wrists, and hind quarters. I spent three weeks researching handlebars, and I ended up going with the Jones H-bars for both bikes. My research paid off and they turned out to be everything we hoped they would be and more. Very comfortable, amazingly versatile, incredibly durable, and the design is nothing short of outstanding. I’ve been riding bikes for over 50 years and I’ve seen a lot of “game changer” add-ones and improvements, but this one takes the trophy. Thanks for having the courage to paint outside the lines, and for sharing your ideas with us. I’ve never been one to follow the pack because I’d rather put in the time and effort to figure out what’s actually best for ME. As usual, my research paid off and my wife and I will never go back to the old style bars.

    Jones H-Loop handlebar 710

    Posted by Douglas Moore on 27th Aug 2018

    From the moment I put the H-Loop bars on my bike, my comfort level changed for the better. My wrists used to hurt and my back followed suit. I have ridden twice since the upgrade and I have to say I would rather ride my fat bike now than my road bike that I had custom made to fit me. I feel like I have plenty of power and control with the H-loop bars. I would recommend this set of bars to anyone who wants to be comfortable, yet be in control of their bike.

    Jones SG Loop H-Bar

    Posted by Eric Marcano on 23rd Aug 2018

    I tried this on a 2011 Trek Mamba that I was setting up for bikepacking but ended up using the SG 2.5 for that bike due to the bike’s low headtube height. So I took this bar (Jones SG Loop H-bar) and put it on a 2018 Norco Torrent 2 HT. It’s hard to describe how much more fun that bike is now. A little background: I bought the Torrent because I was starting to push my limits. Well, I pushed too hard and broke my elbow and damaged a few other things on my forearm and wrist. The recovery sucked and I realized that going forward, I’m perfectly fine with just staying on the ground and avoiding big drops. In addition, the 800mm mtb bar was now very uncomfortable for my arm. Once I put the Jones bar on my Torrent, it became my favorite ride once again. My arm felt 1000% better. Grip options galore, of course, but interestingly enough, I was able to do things I couldn’t with the straight bar. For instance, on climbs I can grip the edges of the loop and get more weight up front to keep the front wheel down (an issue I was having before). Also, on drops I feel that I can “throw” the bike forward at the right moment to where I can get much further back that I was able to before. Finally, the little hook on the NX brake levers now point laterally to the sides so that I can get my hands way back on the bars and still have one or two fingers wrapped around the hook for great brake control. In essence, a great and serious trail rig is now also playfully fun. For me, it definitely added major comfort over distance and more control over technical terrain. Jeff nailed it with this product.

    I recently purchased a Loop H-Bar and I was so impressed that I've purchased a 2nd one for my spare bike. I broke my shoulder a number of years ago and have battled with standard handlebars ever since. The Loop H-Bar is super comfortable and has relieved my shoulder pain whilst riding. I mainly do long distance MTB riding and can highly recommend the product.

    Excellent all-rounder

    Posted by Rob on 8th Aug 2018

    I use my bike for daily commuting, single track, and bike packing. These bars inspire confidence on the trail and offer very comfortable hand positions for long days I the saddle. I just ordered a pair for my wife as well and she loves them.
