A BIG PART OF OUR PASSION HERE AT FASST COMPANY IS ERGONOMICS.
What exactly is ergonomics? Ergonomics is the study of one’s efficiency in their working environment.
In other words, how efficient are you on your motorcycle or atv? Are you in the best position for the riding you’re doing? Are you in a powerful position on the bike to save a crash or minimize a crash? Do you have trouble keeping your elbows up? Ergonomics not only plays a massive role in comfort, it plays a massive role in safety. Imagine buying a new truck or van and not adjusting the seat position before driving it off the lot. Before long you’d be uncomfortable; and if you’re in a really bad position you’re not able to react quickly or confidently. Simply put, this is ergonomics.
As ergonomic specialists, we offer a wide variety of bar bends. The reason for the variety is that handlebars are not one size fits all. Consider a few different disciplines (adv, atv, dual sport, moto, etc.,) factor in a range of rider heights (conservatively 5’3” to 6’3”,) account for different goals (racing and recreational,) any limitations or restrictions (fused wrists, etc.,) and then the need for a variety of bar bends becomes apparent. Think back to adjusting the seat in a new car; a few millimeters makes a big difference. It’s the same concept applied to a handlebar. Your handlebar is your main contact point between the bike and rider. It’s one of the few components you can change to accommodate different size riders.
With Flexx Handlebars not only do you have a variety of bar bends at your fingertips to run exactly what works best for you, but you also get unparalleled abuse reduction. This provides you with the highest performing handlebar available, combining less vibration, subdued impacts, and improved ergonomics for a better day riding.

Even if you have a preferred bar bend that you’ve run on different bikes, after chatting with our ergo specialists we may find that small changes in height or sweep could add additional comfort. The bar bend you consider your preferred bend could be improved on. That’s the benefit of having a variety to choose from.
