Fasst Company is out to kill vibration and hand fatigue with their pivoting Flexx MTB handlebars. Available in several variants, the bars use unique compression and rebound elastomers for a completely tuneable and smooth ride. All feature an effective five degrees of suspension movement, with optional clamping widths to accommodate standard and direct-mount stems.
Fasst Flexx MTB suspension elastomer handlebar for enduro, DH, and e-bike
Elastomer suspension systems for seatposts and stems are well-established, but using them in a handlebar is certainly not as wide-spread. Fasst Company gets it done with a 7075 aluminum center, carbon grips, and a dual-pivot design with replaceable elastomers.
There are four different models available of the Flexx bar. An Enduro/DH model has a 63 or 73mm wide center section for standard or direct-mount stems (with 800mm and 810mm widths, respectively). E-bike versions carry identical dimensions, but use heavier-duty elastomers to deal with the added weight and speed of pedal-assist bikes. All models come with soft, medium, and firm compression and rebound elastomers. A full spec list can be found below:
