Fasst Company Releases Alloy Version of Flexx Handlebar

Feb 11, 2021
by Alicia Leggett  

Fasst Company has updated the Flexx handlebar collection by adding an alloy option, which weighs 110 g more than the carbon version but costs $100 less at $324.99.

The bars are shock absorbing and Fasst says they will "take hand discomfort out of the equation, boosting your performance, increasing confidence, equaling a level of ride enjoyment not attainable before." They work by pivoting at two bushing joints that are fitted with interchangeable elastomers that allow riders to tune the bars’ firmness and ride feel. The joints are designed to flex in the direction in which a rider’s arms bend, but not in the steering axis, with the goal of proving damping without affecting steering precision.

The Flexx handlebar is available in both enduro and downhill versions, the differences being that the enduro version comes at 800 mm while the downhill version measures 810 mm, and that the downhill version has a wider clamp area to accommodate direct-mount stems.

Tech specs (Enduro Alloy):
Rise: 25mm
Clamp Diameter: 31.8mm
Weight: 550grams
Width: 800mm
Upsweep: 5°
Backsweep: 8° or 12° options available
Effective suspension travel: 5°, length of bar dictates overall travel

The bars are made in the USA from 7075 aluminum and come with soft, medium and hard compression and rebound elastomers.

They are available now on the Fasst Company website.

 @SonofBovril: Spank bars are sooo stiff the Vibrocore just makes them like a regular set .
You can get bars with much more compliance than Vibrocore.
If you like super stiff bars get Spanks regular ones

 @neimbc: I've heard of that spray foam mod and it seemed like a fun cheap experiment. Have you played around with any of the different spray foam products? Loctite makes one comparable to regular Great Stuff which claims to have smaller more uniform cells. Both of them dry hard though, and I'd wondered about them breaking down over time as the bars flex on each ride. They also make one that cures soft (maybe latex based?) that I'd thought might work as well or better at damping, but also would perhaps hold up better to the flexing.

 @thekaiser: I never used anything else. It hasn't broken down or in anyway, cracked or fallen apart. There may be better alternatives with better properties, but I never bothered. Maybe something like a flex seal type foam. But it works wonders. Just ping it lightly with a piece of metal and hold it - you'll feel it and the sound difference is all you need to hear to know that vibrations are dampened by quite a bit..

 @igxqrrl: I would guess you might want to be able to chat with someone at the company to find out which combination of elastomers and such works better for your weight, riding style and type of issue you're dealing with (hand pain, nerve pain, bad wrists etc.) Being able to chat with someone directly about these kinds of things vs reading the recommendations on a website is a huge bonus.
  • 72 1
 I had a question about bar bend for my moto a few years back, a question about their MTB bars here recently and another on elastomer setup. So I guess you can give them whatever grade you want for me being a needy bastard if that floats your boat. Cal me old school but I prefer to call if I can....
  • 19 11
 @igxqrrl: Hey dudes, just wanna say I bought one of your bars. So, now that we're friends, did you see the game last night? You wanna help me fix this ole chevy in the garage?
  • 14 1
 @igxqrrl: Not every call is about a problem. I called them to see when they would be releasing the higher rise version of these bars. They answered immediately, dorked out with me about bikes for far longer than they needed to, and seemed to be all-around nice people seriously into having a good time on two wheels.

For what it's worth, the higher rise bars are coming but they can't commit to a timeline. And these alloy bars were on the website when I called a few weeks back, so I'm surprised that the press release is going out now. Maybe they were listed by not yet for sale...?

Also, NSMB has some good write-ups on the carbon flexx bars for anyone who wants a review.

 I've had these for a while they made a tremendous difference in the nerve pain I experience in my hands. I can't recommend them enough. The bars were the difference between my being able to finish certain trails without stopping to let my hands cool off and having to stop several times. The folks at Fasst are awesome, too. I spent a while with them on the phone talking about different issues I was having with my hands and they were really helpful

 Might give them a go - I broke my wrist 2 years ago and now I’m back up to full speed and ride 4 times a week my wrist aches a lot, pretty much all the time.

I felt a huge difference going from renthal carbon bars to one up bars (a lot more flex in a good way) so this would be next level...

 @Richt2000: I used renthal carbon bars for 5 years and ended up changing to Nukeproof carbon v1 bars

 I've been drooling on these for awhile. One of my up the chain coworkers had a set and loved them. I really want a set but I can't make myself spend the money on them. I blew my hand up pretty bad awhile ago and have pretty band problems with it. Had a bad break and displacement that was out for around 3-4 months before they'd believe me that it was jacked up. Surgery. Pins. etc. Now on extended descents... especially with break bumps or repeated drops... my hand goes completely numb and I can't feel the bars in my hand at all. Which makes me compensate with my other hand which eventually does the same thing because it's going... wtf dude. And I have to stop or crash. Been looking at these bars and the Rev grips.

 @pedro46: One up probably has natural flex down better than anyone else making carbon bars right now. I'd just get those. I run Raceface NextR bars on all my bikes. Great bar... really great. But stiff. OnUp's entire game is based on how much time they spent working on laying the carbon for certain types of flex.

 @pedro46: one up 35 800mm wide with 35mm rise. I had raceface sixc and then renthal carbon, and these are much comfier.

 @onemanarmy: My other half suffered a bad wrist injury and was also struggling with her hand. So we've got her rev grips, OneUp bars, Smashpot coil conversion and a tyre insert. If she's still having issues we will try these bars but while you wait I'd definitely recommend trying the rev grips. Although they aren't exactly cheap either I know.

 Just get an e bike with a DH fork and forget all these gimmicks. 200mm of travel goes alot further than a few mm of handlebar flex.
  • 4 0
 @DoubleCrownAddict: I agree to an extent but things like the flexx bars will always do a better job of absorbing truly high frequency chatter/energy.

I think things like inserts/these bars/rev grips etc, allow you to tune your suspension a lot firmer and optimize for mid/low frequency support without compromising on chatter/high frequency stuff.
  • 10 0
 I ran these on my DH bike all last season and they are legit. Takes so much chatter out. No more swollen fingers after several days back to back at the bike park. I can do more runs in a day and charge harder. They are made in the US and the quality is impeccable. I have the carbon version but I would rather have had this alloy version . These bars aren't in the same league as a flex stem. Entire bikes used to snap in half back when flex stems were a thing. Not a fair comparison. If you have wrist issues or struggle with hand pain, shoulder issues, numbness etc I would try them. They are very tunable as well. The different inserts are very noticeable in feel. I might swap the carbon bars to my trail bike and get a set of these alloy bars for my DH rig. Having spent most of 2 wheel life riding moto, I'm shocked people comment on the price of these bars. What people spend in this sport on gimmicky do-dads is mind blowing. You get what you pay for and these bars are going to extend my shreddable years.

 I've had them for a while and they are really helpful for people with hand issues. The use of elastomers is not ideal, I agree, but they provide several you can adjust as the seasons change and they firm up or soften. They are nothing like the flexstem of old, though. They don't compromise your control of the bike at all and, if anything, help it.
  • 4 0
 @noplacelikeloam: It also really depends on the usage. For example for gravel riding flexy components are succesfully soaking up the dirt road chatter, making them a lightweight weight alternative for suspension, which is a bit overkill on gravel. There things don't get technical, so you don't run into the same issues as on mtbs.

On mtbs suspension is the way to go, but if you have some properly working flex stuff, I can imagine it could still help taking the edge off bumps (causing less fatigue), especially those smaller ones where suspension is working less effectively due to its friction. It would never replace suspension again on mtb obviously. But I haven't tried these specific handlebars...

 @Mattin: The biggest improvement for me is that it allowed me to run my suspension the way it should be setup with less concern about how it triggered my hand issues. So I could run my fork on the firmer side to stand up to bigger features, without the consequences of small, repeated chunk irritating my hands.

Like anything, it depends on how you set it up. I found it helped a lot with the small chunky stuff that would normally cause hand irritation, but I was also running suspension components that I kept well maintained and had great small bump compliance. I think the real test would be if you did a back to back on a rigid bike or even a HT, but on my bikes I've run them on, it made a big difference all around.
  • 1 0
 @shinook: Good to hear! Personally I think the real test is to do what you did, as as far as I know, it has been designed to work next to suspension, exactly how you described it Smile

In the market for a new bar with a bit of flex as I think it'll help with left elbow nagging arthritis. Been looking into the OneUp carbon bar, but this sounds intriguing. ...and yes, I also do PT for the elbow which helps, but a big day on the bike does not help.

 I have been riding these bars for three years, and think they are well worth the money and weight. Definitely more control in really rough sections and I have considerably less arm pump while riding Angel Fire Bike Park with them. When you look at them fort what they really are, a suspension product, the weight and price are more acceptable.
  • 4 1
 Have had them now since December, I run the red elastomers and the flex is imperceptible but the difference in hand fatigue is immediately apparent on a typically rough descent here in SW Utah where the company hails from. They're pricey, yes. But, if you can afford what it basically twice that of a nice Carbon bar they're readily worth it. For me it's a safety factor, I've gotten fatigued on a nasty descents and lost my grip resulting in a big crash. When I'm tired I get sloppy, these help me stay fresh longer thereby I'm more safe and I have more fun. I was a skeptic, and now I'm a convert lol.
  • 3 0
 This is a pretty disappointing mod for these bars. As currently, they work great, however after 1 week of park riding the bushings are worn out and the bar has to be sent back to the company because they are not easy to replace yourself. The other problem is the screw breaking, it's a bit small.. a lot of force goes through the handlebar, a better pivot system should have been a priority, not replacing the carbon tubes, for aluminum tubes.. which is easy and obvious.
  • 3 1
 they could use longboard bushing to give even bigger possibility for tuning choosing from different companies and hardness. Unfortunately it is needed to make bigger profit selling the same thing but designed just for those handlebars...

 40 years old, riding since 95. Arthritis in both elbows. Bought Rev grips, huge improvement. Might buy these next. All you 18 year olds, no you don't need these and it's probably a waist for you. If your 40 and still charging hard, and don't money from your mom to buy them, it's worth it lol...Of course it's alot of money, but if it eases pain it's worth it. Not rich either, just bike is only thing I splurge on. You young riders, take care of your bodies. This sport can be rough over time

 I am very tempted to try these! I am also glad they sell the elastomer thingys on there website and it isn't one of those "send it in and we'll fix it" sort of deals.

If you guys can manage to not change the design of the little pieces or at least keep making replecement parts for the older ones then you have a customer for life (I hate it when peeps change the design and don't support the earlier iterations of a product that worked well as is) (ahem, Fox)

 Forks are great at absorbing trail impact. But the handlebars (and grips) are the first point of impact for your body weight. The Fasst bars take the edge off those rock gardens and square-edged hits that suspension forks are a little slower to act on.

 there comes a point before you go all in, that you need to ask yourself; " will people actually buy this." unfortunately this step was skipped here.

 20 years down the line, I think that step was actually considered.

 I bet tons of eBikers will buy into that gimmick... "boosting your performance, increasing confidence, equaling a level of ride enjoyment not attainable before."

 I too am I E-bike hater. But just look at the reviews on these bars... pretty stellar responses from everyone who rides them!

 @MillerReid: no joke, all the reviews are positive. The only downside is cost (and weight).

 "Gimmick" is quite an insult when aimed at something that clearly has taken a lot of effort to produce. It's 2021 and I don't think products like this would make it to Pinkbike if it didn't have a shred of creditability.

 @kmg0: I’m actually only 40 but 25 years of doing dumb stuff on 2 wheels have taken its toll. If we are all lucky enough, we’ll all someday be part of the grey beard club.

 @phobospwns: i'm 31, when i say "grey beard" i'm thinking of the dudes with the artisan mustache drinking kombucha post ride who spend heard's of money of niche crap. Not talking OG shredders.. for example, Wade Simmons / Tippie => OG shredders vs. "Architectural Designer who is die hard gravel grinder and post selfies on Instagram at 48 years old cause they just discovered fat biking" => grey beard.

 Buy some Rev grips. Same purpose, much cheaper.

 yeah but no where near the same amount of flex/travel. 5 degrees on a 400 mm bar is 34 mm. That's the bar clamp point.

 Meh - kind of the same idea but the bars work a lot better.
