Spank has taken alloy handlebar tech to the next level with Vibrocore to create a race-tuned and award-winning handlebar design. It all starts with a 6-series alloy that is shaped to perfection with their Dual XGT double butting process. Essentially, this makes the bars thicker for maximum strength where it's needed and reduces the thickness in other areas to save on weight. The bars are then injected with Spank's fancy Vibrocore foam which uses the power of science to greatly reduce the harmful vibrations felt through the bar while also increasing overall bar stiffness and fatigue life. 

These are pretty wide bars at 800mm wide but they have handy trim marks to enable you to trim them down to a minimum 740mm width or anything else in-between

Who's this item for: DH, Enduro, and Gravity riders looking to reduce the pain and discomfort that harsh vibrations through the bars can cause.           
            
Material: Dual butted Extreme Gradual Taper (XGT) MGR Super 6 Alloy alloy injected with Vibrocore to take the buzz out of the bars. Shot peen anodised finish for durability.
            
Width: 800mm of tree clipping width. Can trim up to 30mm off each end to bring them down to 740mm if you'd prefer.      
            
Sweep: 4° Up, 8° Back.   
            
Rise: Available in 30mm or 50mm rise            
            
Markings: Centre alignment, cut marks to trim up to 30mm off each end.
            
Clamping diameter/bore: 31.8mm
            
Weight
  • Approx 350 grams  (30mm rise)
  • Approx 360 grams (50mm rise)    
Pros: Vibrocore injection to reduce arm pump and hand numbness.            
            
Cons: Even though 800mm isn't crazy wide by modern standards, most people will still probably need to trim them down a bit.

Tough and just the right amount of flex for smashing through gnar

No Vibrations are Good Vibrations with these bars.

Purchased these Spank Vibrocore bars for my Kenevo after having a pair on my analog bike and being impressed.
The 50mm rise is excellent and hands not tingling or sore after full days on the gravity trails. Thourougly recommend these bars and MTB Direct.

I have osteoarthritis in my wrists/hands and had surgery on my right wrist. Riding was painful. I bought a set of Spank Spike bars and could not believe how bloody good they are! Pain is reduced significantly.
Highly recommended! 👍

Fantastic bars!! No more arm pump or sore hands, after my first ride I immediately noticed the difference to my stock bars..alloy but nice and light👌 highly recommend.

Vibrocore - It works!

by

After doing some research on the Vibrocore feature, I was slightly sceptical.
I’m glad to say I was wrong in my scepticism, the Vibrocore system works and works very well.
The vibration reduction is noticeable, which results in less arm pump and grip fatigue.
The bars have a high quality shot peened anodised finish which stand up to abuse.

Ok. So like, if your looking at these. You've probably been looking at carbon bars, or have heard that carbon bars reduce arm pump, but don't want to run carbon and have researched all sorts of alloy and titanium bars. There's one simple question you want answered: Do these help reduce arm pump/fatigue? Yes. Honestly. They do. Deeper analysis; Everyone knows that feeling, after smashing a few downhill runs, of having to peel your fingers off the bars. Unable to hold on but also unable to let go. That is where these shine. I compared them back to back with standard alloy bars of the same sweep but slightly different width. I was able to do 1 sight and 7 full runs, back to back, in 4 hours, before I couldn't hold on to the bars anymore. One week later, with no training or riding between, was able to do 1 sight and 10 full runs in 4 hours. And I could probably have kept going, but it was getting dark. So in conclusion: If you are looking at bars, do yourself a favour, throw down the extra few dollars. Its a few grams heavier but so much better.
