Following in the footsteps of the wider Spike DH/Freeride bar, the 760mm Oozy handlebar will be getting a Vibro-Core option that fills the body with their vibration damping foam.
Designed to kill the buzz that can lead to hand, arm and mental fatigue over longer and repeated runs, the Vibro-Core filling reduces the size, frequency and duration of vibrations. That means they’re drastically reduced by the time they reach your hands, and it’s all done with a low density foam that adds very little weight.

The bar retains their XGT (Extreme Gradual Taper) design that keeps the interior and exterior walls very smooth, with a consistent taper from center clamping section all the way out to the ends. That prevents stress risers and weak spots, so you get a stronger bar that’s still competitively light. Closeups of the taper shown here.
It’ll be available in 5mm and 15mm rise options, weights from 235g.
The Oozy rims aren’t new, but they’ve evolved over the years. Originally launched with premium alloy materials that have even been borrowed by other rim brands, the Oohbah shape puts a hump in the middle to help the beads sit low for easier seating and add stiffness to the rim.
Since then, they’ve added the Bead Bite design, which places small hooks on the bottom and sides of the bead seat/sidewall to really grab the tire’s bead. The goal? Avoid burping and keep the tire in place under hard cornering with lower pressures.
