Flexx Handlebar Crossbars Explained
Straight crossbars or damper crossbars?
Straight Crossbars are for rider that are not running a steering damper at all, or are running a damper mounted under the bar.
Damper Crossbars are for riders that are running an over the bar steering damper. The raised crossbars allow room for mounting the damper above the bar.
How to tell what generation and length crossbar you need:
Long crossbars are 10” long from end to end. Long crossbars are found on our wider Moto bar.
Short crossbars are 9” long from end to end. Short crossbars are found on our narrower Enduro bar and our Adventure bar.
See the pictures with the measuring tape for further clarification.
