The Flexx Handlebar absorbs shock and vibration that is transferred to your body, allowing you to ride longer, at a faster pace with more control. Simply put, you will have a better racing results, more fun riding or better time exploring with Flexx Handlebars controlling your day.

 

 

Our technology doesn’t happen by accident. It’s been honed, shaped, reviewed, tested and re-tested with the goal of more control with less abuse always in mind. The cumulative effects of our experience are offered in today’s Flexx Handlebar. We’ve eliminated maintenance, decreased friction and further reduced vibration to offer you an exceptional ownership experience that will allow you a better day of riding.

The design was originally intended to absorb catastrophic impacts for instance casing a jump or hitting a large “g-out”. The reality of the system’s performance is a massive reduction in shock and abuse transferred to the rider throughout all types of terrain.

We take great pride in bringing you the only 100% American Made handlebar. The Flexx Handlebar is a labor-intensive product. Exclusively constructed out of two different states of 7000 series aluminum; employing the latest technology in CNC machining and extrusion methods, our handlebars are made with the utmost hands-on precision and care. Strict tolerances are checked many times over by a highly qualified production crew, ensuring that every component of the Flexx Handlebar goes out our doors with unparalleled accuracy.

Features


  1. Controlled and consistent

    By only articulating near the same plane as the forks in a natural motion for your body, riders do not notice the bar moving. This is an often over looked point as any other product that claims to absorb abuse does so in 360°, which is not consistent or controlled, creating a vague feeling. A rider will not notice a properly set up Flexx Handlebar, they will notice the front end tracking better, minimized abuse transferred and the ability to better focus on line selection instead of holding on.


  1. Dramatically reduces vibration

    The handle is completely isolated from touching metal to metal through the use of our Fiber Bushings at the pivot point as well as our Elastomers. Both the Fiber Bushings and Elastomers have vibration reduction characteristics engineered into them resulting in less vibration transferred to you.


  1. Tunable to your needs

    Our Compression and Rebound Elastomers absorb abuse typically transferred to your upper body. With 4 Compression and 3 Rebound Elastomers to choose from you can fine tune your Flexx Handlebar to suit your preferences.


  1. Component ready

    Numerous accessories available such as handguard mounts, rebound elastomer kits, dash boards, grips and more available in our store.

 

What's in the box

  1. Silver handlebar pad
  2. 3 sets of Compression Elastomers
  3. 2 set of Rebound Elastomers

  • Enduro Bends Our Enduro bends have a 1" narrower mid section shown as measurement (B) with full length handles of our Moto bend, providing plenty of room to trim to your desired width.
  • Handle Length All Moto and Enduro bends offer 9” of handle room over an inch more than a traditional 7/8" or taper style bar.
  • Accessory Applications Flexx Handlebar can be used with enduro computers, trip computers, GPS, steering dampers, roll charts, etc., etc. We offer a dash in our store section that will easily accommodate most GPS.
  • Super Tenere/Adventure Bends The Super Tenere/Adventure bends are built on our narrow center section with longer handles, offering a full 10inches of handle room, easily accommodating all of your stock controls. We recommend Tenere customers use a threaded bar weight anchor to mount their stock bar weight/end caps. We offer threaded bar anchors in our store.  Any sweep can be built as a Tenere/Adventure bend.
  • Low Bar Low Bar-The Low bends are incredibly low at 63mm of height. Low bends require 19mm of clearance between the bottom of the bar and the fork caps. Low bends are designed to used with a under bar damper, bringing the bar height down to 10mm lower than stock height in most applications.
  • All Flexx Handlebars require a 1 1/8" bar clamps.
  • All bars are shipped with silver bar pads – many other colors are available.

Warranty Program

We are able to offer our warranty program to you because we have so few damaged bars. If you’ve crashed hard enough to damage the Flexx Handlebar we would like to help you get rolling again.

Plain and simple, we want to eliminate any buying resistance you have. We are committed to getting our Flexx Handlebar on YOUR bike, because we know once you ride with it you won’t ride without it.

We appreciate your business and want you to have an exceptional experience with our company. Our mission has always been to build value-added components and strive for the best customer service in the industry. We tell you the truth first, the things other companies are scared or resistant to telling you, because we value our relationship with you and want it based on honesty.

Why we do not offer replaceable parts for Flexx Handlebars

We get this question a lot. Due to the modular construction of the Flexx Handlebar it is easy to assume replaceable parts are available. We do not offer replaceable parts for several reasons. If a main component of the Flexx Handlebar has been damaged the whole system has taken a major shock which could result in a stress riser forming in a separate component than the one showing damage.This stress riser could allow the bar to fail while you are riding, which is something we want to keep from happening to you. By only offering complete bars we put you in a safer position, which is our #1 concern.

Warranty Program Details

If your Flexx Handlebar has been damaged in an accident/crash we would like to offer you our damage replacement program for a period of one year from the time of purchase. This program allows you to purchase a Flexx Handlebar System at 50% off the retail price plus the cost of shipping when you send your old Flexx Handlebar to us.

How to send your bars in

  • Remove the Flexx Handlebar you wish to submit for warranty. Please do not clean any mud, grease or debris for the Flexx Handlebar, we want to receive it just the way it hit the ground.
  • Call us for a RA# (877) 306-1801
  • Attach a note to the Flexx Handlebar with your name, address, RA#, and phone number.
  • Send your Flexx Handlebar to:
  • Fasst Company Attn: Warranty Dept. 1337 South 1900 East Washington, UT 84780

Exceptions to the program

The Flexx Handlebar 50% off warranty program is only available to the original purchaser of the Flexx Handlebar System. It is not available to second hand owners. We do not condone buying used Flexx Handlebars. We strongly discourage customers from purchasing used handlebars. Think of handlebars as you would a helmet, would you buy a used helmet? (of course not!) By not knowing how handlebars were previously cared for, treated, or crashed on you are opening yourself up to a potential liability for failure.

Our warranty program does not apply to Flexx Handlebars that have been bought second hand. We have seen a damaged handlebars sold to unsuspecting customers online, ending in disappointment for the trusting customer.

Manufacturer Warranty

This product is warranted against manufacture defects for a period of 180 days from the purchase date. If you feel your Flexx Handlebar System has a manufacturing defect please send the Flexx System and proof of purchase to us. Please note: this does not cover the product being installed incorrectly, neglected, cut, trimmed, altered, abused or damaged from crashing.

Servicing your Flexx Handlebars

Flexx Handlebars manufactured prior to August 2010 do require routine maintenance to the pivot points to maintain consistent performance.

Please find a step by step video below, walking you through how to properly maintain your Flexx Handlebar. In the right column are also specific instructions on how to service your Flexx Handlebar.

Factory Fresh Service

We also offer our free Factory Fresh in-house service program for your Flexx Handlebars. This service requires you OBTAIN an RA# from us, as well as read, print and sign our Service Order Form. Next ship us your bars with the RA# and signed release form, Attn: Factory Fresh. The Factory Fresh service program for Flexx Handlebars is free with the purchase of a Service Kit. The Factory Fresh program consists of disassembling and cleaning your Flexx Handlebars, a thorough servicing of the pivots and reassembly with a Flexx Handlebar Service Kit. The Service Kit consists of new o-rings, clips, bolts, washers, and nuts as well the compression and rebound elastomers of your choice at a cost of $24.99. Please note that this is only a clean and lube job, in no way does this make your handlebar stronger, last longer or take away any prior damage/neglect. If your Flexx Handlebar is damaged in anyway we will inform you of the damage and what your options are. We will not return damaged handlebars to you as it is a safety concern and liability to yourself.

Proper Handle Resistance

Your handles may have some drag or resistance when the elastomer is removed. The drag is caused by the exacting tolerance required for the Flexx Handlebar to offer the utmost in control and reliability. Flexx Handlebar pivot points are most likely the most exacting tolerance on your entire machine and must be so. Too large of a tolerance will not the yield the precise control you as a rider require to perform at your best. It is not only acceptable but preferred to have some drag on the handles. Each side of every Flexx Handlebar System is measured with a strain gauge to be sure the resistance of each handle is within our tolerance. If your bar rebounds to its present ride height after being compressed you should be good to go. If you have any questions concerning this please contact us. *If your pivot pins are damaged they will need to be replaced. A Pivot Pin kit is an additional $20. Download the Service Order Form

The Step by Step Service Process

Two key things to remember

1) Do not mix the pivot pins up. The left pin needs to go back in the left hole, and the right pin in the right hole. We separate our pins and hone our pivot holes to .0001 of an inch. It is crucial to have proper fitment of each pin so there is not front to back play.

2) The second key point is do not strike the pivot pin directly with a hammer, press or any other form of tool. A dowel or punch must be used to protect the pivot pin from "mushrooming". If you do not have a proper dowel or punch to match the pivot pin diameter you can use an old bolt to protect the pin.

Tools Required

  • 12 or 13mm wrench
  • 6mm allen
  • c-clip pliers
  • punch
  • hammer or press (air hammer is preferred, but not required)
  • safety glasses
Servicing your Flexx Handlebar can be done on or off the machine. It is easier to do off the machine if you have a proper vise. Be sure if you do place the Flexx Handlebar in a vise you use plastic jaws or a similar product to protect the Flexx Handlebar from being damaged by the jaws. It is also important to note that whenever working with c-clips that proper safety eyewear is worn. C-clips have a tendency to fly off at warp speed when being removed or installed and although we know you want your Flexx Handlebar to perform as it is intended to it is not worth losing an eye over!
  1. Remove the elastomer nuts, slide the bolts back, then remove the elastomers.
  2. Remove the rear c-clips and rear crossbar.
  3. Tap the pivot pins forward slightly which allows easier access to the front c-clips. Remember not to strike the pivot pins directly.
  4. Remove the front c-clips and front crossbar.
  5. Now drive the pins completely out. Again, be sure not to strike or press on the pivot pin directly. Do not mix the pins up.
  6. Clean pivot holes and pivot pins. Remove the old o-rings and replace with new ones.
  7. Lube the pivot pins as well as pivot holes with anti-seize.
  8. Place the pivot pin in the back side of the bar, square to the bore. You will know the pin is square to the bore when it will not rock easily up, down, or to the side without applying force.
  9. Now tap the pivot pin all the way through the handle out the other side. It is easiest to replace the c-clips if the pin is extended out slightly past the crossbar.
  10. Place one o-ring on the front, outside of each pin, and then place the crossbars on to the pins. The extra 0-ring will keep the crossbars from vibrating. You may need to place an extra o-ring on the back side as well.
  11. Install the front crossbar and c-clips. Carefully tap the pins back until the c-clip is against the crossbar.
  12. Install the rear crossbar and clips. Be sure all of the clips are securely in their designated groove by pulling the crossbars away from each other.
  13. Install nuts, bolts and elastomers.

The most commonly asked questions about Flexx Handlebars

Will the Flexx Handlebar System work with steering dampers?

Yes, the Flexx Handlebar System will work with steering stabilizers from all manufactures. To be able to use an over the bar stabilizer with Flexx Handlebars you need to replace the straight crossbars with steering damper crossbars. For new orders your bars can be built with damper crossbars at no extra charge. If you are an existing Flexx Handlebar rider and need to order damper crossbars please call us or order in our store.

 

What handguard options do you have for the Flexx Handlebar System?

There are several handguard options available. We offer our Handguard Hitch which is an external mount that bolts to the pivot pin and allows you to use most brands of wrap around handguards. Cycra has also built a handguard that bolts directly onto the Flexx Handlebar. The Cycra Pro Bend for Flexx Handlebars is the simplest way to mount handguards on Flexx Handlebars.

 

Do any other handguard systems work on Flexx Handlebars?

Flexx Handlebars will accept any handle mounted "flag" or roost deflection guard given you have enough handle room. Most Flexx Handlebar riders have plenty of room as Flexx Handlebars offer 9" of handle room while a traditional bar only offers 8". Handguards that mount off the bar mount or triple clamp will also work with Flexx Handlebars if set up so the handguard will pivot on a shoulder bolt. Please email or call if you have further handguard mount questions.

How often do they need serviced?

Flexx Handlbars purchased after July 2010 are maintenance free. If you purchased Flexx Handlebars after July 2010, you do not need to service your bars at all. The current generation of Flexx Handlebars utilize a fiber bushing to prevent the need for any service or maintenance. To check to make sure you have the newer version, quickly remove your crossbars and look for the bushing encompassing the pivot pin.

Flexx Handlebars pre-July 2010 require regular maintenance. If you're like most people and use a pressure washer to clean your bike or ATV regularly, the Flexx Handlebar pivot pins should routinely checked for proper articulation and serviced if needed. We also offer a free service through our Factory Freshprogram. (hyperlink to Factory Fresh info on service page.) Also note, lack of maintenance to the pivot is not a cause for warranty.

 

Why doesn't Fasst Company install a zerk fitting on Flexx Handlebars?

The 2011 Flexx Handlebar does not require any lubriant at the pivot point. For previous generation Flexx Handlebars we elected not to install a zerk being that our most important task is providing you a product that has proper structural integrity. By drilling and tapping a hole in the handle area for a zerk fitting stress riser are created. Stress riser can lead to premature failure. We will not take the risk of installing a zerk fitting at the pivot point. Through our manufacturing process we go to great lengths to minimize or eliminate stress risers.
