The Fuzion handlebar is a concept in high performance control systems. The revolutionary flex locking system allows riders to choose between a stiffer, more controlled handlebar feel or a softer more shock absorbing feel depending on terrain conditions. Changing the bar from "Locked" to "Unlocked" takes only seconds. The bar itself utilizes ProTaper's exclusive aluminum alloy computer profiled in a 5mm wall design for the ultimate in lightweight strength. Oversize diameter handlebars, without cross bars, were invented, and patented, by ProTaper.
"Unlocked" function allows the cross bar to telescope and flex like a Contour or EVO ProTaper handlebar.
"Locked" function connects the crossbar creating solid, definite feedback to the rider.
Made from 5mm, proprietary, 2000 series T6 aluminum alloy for superior tensile and yield strength.
Cross bar made from cold forged aluminum.
Cross bar clamps CNC machined from 6061 aluminum and adhered with aerospace quality polymer.
High tech, stress relieved, shot peen and anodized finish for unmatched durability.
Knurled clutch side offers better hand grip adhesion.
Chemically applied cut lines and alignment grid are scratch and peel resistant.
Plastic bar end plugs keep out the elements and provides a better base for grip ends.
