The Vibe 7S is the top offering in the PRO line up for aluminum bars. They feature a bulge-less top and unique top bend with a short reach which makes the transition from bar to brake/shift lever appear seamless.
Most 31.8mm diameter handlebars have a 31.8mm clamping area that tapers and reduces down to a smaller 26.0mm diameter. The PRO is 31.8mm at the clamp diameter and remains that diameter until the drops of the bar, This is known as Top OS. This design eliminates virtually any flex that occurs in the bar. In turn, the steering input becomes very precise and greatly improves front end handling and stability. It is a marked improvement over other bar designs, due to the fact that most of the unwanted bar flex comes from the top of the bar. The initial drop bend of the bar has a shallow angle and has a short reach to help blend the lever with the bar and offer a smooth transition. Handy marks are placed in the lever clamping area that makes it easy to get the proper angle and both lever aligned consistent with each other. Construction of the Vibe 7S is taken care of by heat treated 7075 aluminum. The finish is a durable and good looking black anodization which will hold up to plenty of abuse and keep the bars looking fresh after many miles of use.
We offer the PRO 7S in two versions: the classic round bend and the new classic Compact II bend. The round bend is an age old standard for riders who prefer a bend with no anatomic shaping. The Compact II is an increasing radius bend. This bend allows for a true anatomic, compact fit that is achieved without bends, so hand positions in the drops are infinite and comfortable in virtually any position. These bars are measured center to center and available in 3 widths. Industry standard 31.8mm clamp diameter only.
