The ultimate bikepacking handlebar.
The Persuader Bar is Tumbleweed’s award-winning mountain touring handlebar design based on many years and thousands of miles of loaded off-road touring experience, a bar focused on comfort, utility and control. Made of heat treated 7000 series aluminum alloy in a shot peened black finish, featuring a 50mm rise and a super comfy 31 degree back sweep.
The Persuader was designed with a few ideas in mind – First, we wanted a bar that has a wide straight section next to the stem for mounting bags, so there is no forward sweep. Next, we wanted to maximize real estate in the grip area so that you could use a variety of grip/brake lever/shifter options and leave plenty of room to trim to your desired width. The narrowest we’ve trimmed them to is 760mm, but there was still plenty of room left to go narrower. To get both a wide front section and a long grip section, we paid extra to have custom tooling made to get the bend radius in the bar as tight and compact as possible. ISO Mountain tested.
The new Alloy Persuader bar has a full width 31.8mm clamping area providing plenty of room to mount a variety of accessories. The original Persuader bar is as nice of a steel bar as we were able to produce, and we were still able to shave off half a pound with the new alloy version, as well as offer it in a new wider 840mm size for maximum control over heavy loaded bikes on rough trails.
Due to their size, we cannot ship Persuader bars with Royal Mail internationally. International orders will have to ship with DHL

Can I run panniers on the T Rack?
Certain lightweight panniers can work, we’ve used the Porcelain Rocket/Rockgeist panniers on the T rack and they work since the panniers strap on to the rack and have a rigid back panel.
Can I mount the T rack on the front or back of my bike?
The T rack was designed for front or rear mounting as long as you have a pair of upper and lower threaded bosses and your frame/fork was designed to accept a standard rack.
I only have one hole in the center of my fork crown, how can I mount a T rack on my fork?
If you have lower threaded eyelets but only a center fork hole at the crown, ask your local bike shop to see if they have appropriate rack hardware for center mounting, or check out this adaptor.
Can I put this on my fat bike?
The T Rack is compatitibe with fatbike forks but is not compatible with the rear mounts, due to the width of lower rack mounts.
