When it comes to dirt biking, some riders swear by a handlebar that flexes to absorb some of the impact and vibration that is transferred to their body when tackling jumps on the track and obstacles in the woods. Others prefer the direct control of a rigid handlebar. If you’re torn between the two, why not give the Fuzion Handlebars from ProTaper a try?
Essentially two bars in one, the Fuzion Handlebars come with a telescopic crossbar that is controlled by a dial in the middle. When kept in the locked position, the bars remain rigid, giving the rider direct and definite contact with his or her bike. In the unlocked position, the bars offer 32 per cent difference in flex. What may seem like a minor adjustment has been reported to reduce arm pump and rider fatigue. Switching from locked to the unlocked position takes only seconds.
The bar itself is made from ultra-strong and lightweight aluminum alloy. The bars are 1 ⅛ inches on the mounting points and they taper to ⅞ inch at the ends. Knurling on the left-hand side provides superior adhesion for grips, and there are plastic bar end plugs to keep the elements out. Another nice feature on the Fuzion Handlebars are the measurement points, which are located on each end so that both sides with be exact for those wanting to shorten the bars.
The ProTaper Fuzion Handlebars are designed to fit all makes and models and there are six different bends available.
