Just like your suspension, elastomers do need to be freshened up. We recommend changing your elastomers yearly to be sure your Flexx Handlebars are performing as intended.
Elastomer kits come with 2 compression and 2 rebound elastomers.
Smaller riders, or those riding mellow trails (or gravel grinding) usually prefer the blue or yellow compression elastomer. The red elastomers are harder and provide a more traditional feel. The black elastomers are extra hard, mostly reserved for larger, more aggressive down hill riders. It's mostly personal preference, and with a little testing you can quickly tailor the bar to your needs. We're happy to discuss your elastomer combination with you to be sure you're getting the most out of the Flexx Handlebar, please shoot us a call or email to do so.
Soft - Blue
Medium - Yellow
Hard - Red
Extra Hard - Black
Compression and Rebound Elastomer kits are sold in pairs.
Highly recommended. I took a punt on Fasstco Moto 14 bars in an effort to get around a previous arm fracture injury and recurring Carpal Tunnel problems in my right hand. I was a little sceptical about really finding a solution but after a few weeks use I’m highly impressed. These things do exactly what is promised. I’ve been able to crank the front fork preload back up slightly with no detrimental effect on the arm or hand. Really good gear.
