XGT Extreme Gradual Taper Technology
XGT “Extreme Gradual Taper” bars were designed to taper GRADUALLY and CONTINUOUSLY from reinforced wall thicknesses at the stem clamping zone, all the way to the barends. This lack of stress risers, which are normally present in tapered handlebars, allows energy to dissipate unimpeded through a gradual tapering within the inner core, leading to improved strength and fatigue life, and better dampening of hard hits and chatter. To the rider, this means enhanced confidence and control, and less hand, wrist, and forearm pain! Similarly to Spank’s Dual XGT technology, and especially when paired with 3D CNC Bending, XGT tapers offer extreme precision in the drawing process, allowing us to optimize weights by eliminating buffer material, and reduce the need for heavy grinding processes that create thickness inconsistencies.
MGR Micro Grain Refinement
Processes such as extrusion, forging and tube drawing can increase the strength of alloy materials by reducing the grain size Spank uses state of the art proprietary metal forming methods which further improve grain size consistency and orientation, and significantly reduce the grain size beyond that of our competitors. No other bars are subjected to the number of drawing steps or level of refinement as those offered by Spank. This leads to greater ultimate strength, toughtness, and ductility...meaning confidence, comfort and safety.
