Features


    1. Controlled and consistent

      By only articulating near the same plane as the forks in a natural motion for your body, riders do not notice the bar moving. This is an often over looked point as any other product that claims to absorb abuse does so in 360°, which is not consistent or controlled, creating a vague feeling. A rider will not notice a properly set up Flexx Handlebar, they will notice the front end tracking better, minimized abuse transferred and the ability to better focus on line selection instead of holding on.


    1. Dramatically reduces vibration

      The handle is completely isolated from touching metal to metal through the use of our Fiber Bushings at the pivot point as well as our Elastomers. Both the Fiber Bushings and Elastomers have vibration reduction characteristics engineered into them resulting in less vibration transferred to you.


    1. Tunable to your needs

      Our Compression and Rebound Elastomers absorb abuse typically transferred to your upper body. With 4 Compression and 3 Rebound Elastomers to choose from you can fine tune your Flexx Handlebar to suit your preferences.


    1. Component ready

      Numerous accessories available such as handguard mounts, rebound elastomer kits, dash boards, grips and more available in our store.

Flexx Handlebar Warranty Program

We are able to offer our warranty program to you because we have so few damaged bars. If you’ve crashed hard enough to damage the Flexx Handlebar we would like to help you get rolling again.

Plain and simple, we want to eliminate any buying resistance you have. We are committed to getting our Flexx Handlebar on YOUR bike, because we know once you ride with it you won’t ride without it.

We appreciate your business and want you to have an exceptional experience with our company. Our mission has always been to build value-added components and strive for the best customer service in the industry. We tell you the truth first, the things other companies are scared or resistant to telling you, because we value our relationship with you and want it based on honesty.

Why we do not offer replaceable parts for Flexx Handlebars
We get this question a lot. Due to the modular construction of the Flexx Handlebar it is easy to assume replaceable parts are available. We do not offer replaceable parts for several reasons. If a main component of the Flexx Handlebar has been damaged the whole system has taken a major shock which could result in a stress riser forming in a separate component than the one showing damage. This stress riser cold allow the bar to fail while you are riding, which is something we want to keep from happening to you. By only offering complete bars we put you in a safer position, which is our #1 concern.

Warranty Program Details

If your Flexx Handlebar has been damaged in an accident/crash we would like to offer you our damage replacement program for a period of one year from the time of purchase. This program allows you to purchase a Flexx Handlebar System at 50% off the retail price plus the cost of shipping when you send your old Flexx Handlebar to us.

How to send your bars in

  • Remove the Flexx Handlebar you wish to submit for warranty. Please do not clean any mud, grease or debris for the Flexx Handlebar, we want to receive it just the way it hit the ground.
  • Call us for a RA# (877) 306-1801
  • Attach a note to the Flexx Handlebar with your name, address, RA#, and phone number.
  • Send your Flexx Handlebar to:
  • Fasst Company
    Attn: Warranty Dept.
    1480 South Sandhill Drive
    Washington, UT 84780

Exceptions to the program

The Flexx Handlebar 50% off warranty program is only available to the original purchaser of the Flexx Handlebar System. It is not available to second hand owners. We do not condone buying used Flexx Handlebars. We strongly discourage customers from purchasing used handlebars. Think of handlebars as you would a helmet, would you buy a used helmet? (of course not!) By not knowing how handlebars were previously cared for, treated, or crashed on you are opening yourself up to a potential liability for failure.

Our warranty program does not apply to Flexx Handlebars that have been bought second hand. We have seen a damaged handlebars sold to unsuspecting customers online, ending in disappointment for the trusting customer.

Manufacturer Warranty

This product is warranted against manufacture defects for a period of 180 days from the purchase date. If you feel your Flexx Handlebar System has a manufacturing defect please send the Flexx System and proof of purchase to us. Please note: this does not cover the product being installed incorrectly, neglected, cut, trimmed, altered, abused or damaged from crashing.

Servicing your Flexx Handlebars

Flexx Handlebars manufactured prior to August 2010 do require routine maintenance to the pivot points to maintain consistent performance.

Please find a step by step video below, walking you through how to properly maintain your Flexx Handlebar. In the right column are also specific instructions on how to service your Flexx Handlebar.

Factory Fresh Service

We also offer our free Factory Fresh in-house service program for your Flexx Handlebars.

This service requires you OBTAIN an RA# from us, as well as read, print and sign our Service Order Form. Next ship us your bars with the RA# and signed release form, Attn: Factory Fresh.

The Factory Fresh service program for Flexx Handlebars is free with the purchase of a Service Kit.

The Factory Fresh program consists of disassembling and cleaning your Flexx Handlebars, a thorough servicing of the pivots and reassembly with a Flexx Handlebar Service Kit. The Service Kit consists of new o-rings, clips, bolts, washers, and nuts as well the compression and rebound elastomers of your choice at a cost of $20.

Please note that this is only a clean and lube job, in no way does this make your handlebar stronger, last longer or take away any prior damage/neglect. If your Flexx Handlebar is damaged in anyway we will inform you of the damage and what your options are. We will not return damaged handlebars to you as it is a safety concern and liability to yourself.

Proper Handle Resistance

Your handles may have some drag or resistance when the elastomer is removed. The drag is caused by the exacting tolerance required for the Flexx Handlebar to offer the utmost in control and reliability. Flexx Handlebar pivot points are most likely the most exacting tolerance on your entire machine and must be so. Too large of a tolerance will not the yield the precise control you as a rider require to perform at your best. It is not only acceptable but preferred to have some drag on the handles.

Each side of every Flexx Handlebar System is measured with a strain gauge to be sure the resistance of each handle is within our tolerance. If your bar rebounds to its present ride height after being compressed you should be good to go. If you have any questions concerning this please contact us.

*If your pivot pins are damaged they will need to be replaced. A Pivot Pin kit is an additional $20.

The Step by Step Service Process

Two key things to remember

1) Do not mix the pivot pins up. The left pin needs to go back in the left hole, and the right pin in the right hole. We separate our pins and hone our pivot holes to .0001 of an inch. It is crucial to have proper fitment of each pin so there is not front to back play.

2) The second key point is do not strike the pivot pin directly with a hammer, press or any other form of tool. A dowel or punch must be used to protect the pivot pin from “mushrooming”. If you do not have a proper dowel or punch to match the pivot pin diameter you can use an old bolt to protect the pin.

Tools Required

  • 12 or 13mm wrench
  • 6mm allen
  • c-clip pliers
  • punch
  • hammer or press (air hammer is preferred, but not required)
  • safety glasses

Servicing your Flexx Handlebar can be done on or off the machine. It is easier to do off the machine if you have a proper vise. Be sure if you do place the Flexx Handlebar in a vise you use plastic jaws or a similar product to protect the Flexx Handlebar from being damaged by the jaws. It is also important to note that whenever working with c-clips that proper safety eyewear is worn. C-clips have a tendency to fly off at warp speed when being removed or installed and although we know you want your Flexx Handlebar to perform as it is intended to it is not worth losing an eye over!

  1. Remove the elastomer nuts, slide the bolts back, then remove the elastomers.
  2. Remove the rear c-clips and rear crossbar.
  3. Tap the pivot pins forward slightly which allows easier access to the front c-clips. Remember not to strike the pivot pins directly.
  4. Remove the front c-clips and front crossbar.
  5. Now drive the pins completely out. Again, be sure not to strike or press on the pivot pin directly. Do not mix the pins up.
  6. Clean pivot holes and pivot pins. Remove the old o-rings and replace with new ones.
  7. Lube the pivot pins as well as pivot holes with anti-seize.
  8. Place the pivot pin in the back side of the bar, square to the bore. You will know the pin is square to the bore when it will not rock easily up, down, or to the side without applying force.
  9. Now tap the pivot pin all the way through the handle out the other side. It is easiest to replace the c-clips if the pin is extended out slightly past the crossbar.
  10. Place one o-ring on the front, outside of each pin, and then place the crossbars on to the pins. The extra 0-ring will keep the crossbars from vibrating. You may need to place an extra o-ring on the back side as well.
  11. Install the front crossbar and c-clips. Carefully tap the pins back until the c-clip is against the crossbar.
  12. Install the rear crossbar and clips. Be sure all of the clips are securely in their designated groove by pulling the crossbars away from each other.
  13. Install nuts, bolts and elastomers.

The most commonly asked questions about Flexx Handlebars

Will the Flexx Handlebar System work with steering dampers?

Yes, the Flexx Handlebar System will work with steering stabilizers from all manufactures. To be able to use an over the bar stabilizer with Flexx Handlebars you need to replace the straight crossbars with steering damper crossbars. For new orders your bars can be built with damper crossbars at no extra charge. If you are an existing Flexx Handlebar rider and need to order damper crossbars please call us or order in our store.

What handguard options do you have for the Flexx Handlebar System?

There are several handguard options available. We offer our Handguard Hitch which is an external mount that bolts to the pivot pin and allows you to use most brands of wrap around handguards.
Cycra has also built a handguard that bolts directly onto the Flexx Handlebar. The Cycra Pro Bend for Flexx Handlebars is the simplest way to mount handguards on Flexx Handlebars.

Do any other handguard systems work on Flexx Handlebars?

Flexx Handlebars will accept any handle mounted “flag” or roost deflection guard given you have enough handle room. Most Flexx Handlebar riders have plenty of room as Flexx Handlebars offer 9″ of handle room while a traditional bar only offers 8″. Handguards that mount off the bar mount or triple clamp will also work with Flexx Handlebars if set up so the handguard will pivot on a shoulder bolt. Please email or call if you have further handguard mount questions.

How often do they need serviced?

Flexx Handlbars purchased after July 2010 are maintenance free. If you purchased Flexx Handlebars after July 2010, you do not need to service your bars at all. The current generation of Flexx Handlebars utilize a fiber bushing to prevent the need for any service or maintenance. To check to make sure you have the newer version, quickly remove your crossbars and look for the bushing encompassing the pivot pin.

Flexx Handlebars pre-July 2010 require regular maintenance. If you’re like most people and use a pressure washer to clean your bike or ATV regularly, the Flexx Handlebar pivot pins should routinely checked for proper articulation and serviced if needed. We also offer a free service through our Factory Freshprogram. (hyperlink to Factory Fresh info on service page.) Also note, lack of maintenance to the pivot is not a cause for warranty.

Why doesn’t Fasst Company install a zerk fitting on Flexx Handlebars?

The 2011 Flexx Handlebar does not require any lubriant at the pivot point. For previous generation Flexx Handlebars we elected not to install a zerk being that our most important task is providing you a product that has proper structural integrity. By drilling and tapping a hole in the handle area for a zerk fitting stress riser are created. Stress riser can lead to premature failure. We will not take the risk of installing a zerk fitting at the pivot point. Through our manufacturing process we go to great lengths to minimize or eliminate stress risers.

    Dear Cole:

    Here’s my review. Feel free to post on the website if you like. I posted pretty much the same thing over at http://www.dirtrider.net.

    I’ve been basically out of MX for almost 2 years as a result of a broken right wrist (complete scaphoid break) that happened as a result of an internal fork problem which caused excessive bottoming over a three foot high double that I overjumped.

    I had the suspension revalved. The bike handles much better now and landings are improved, but the suspension work did not resolve the wrist pain.

    After healing up last year I tried track riding on several occasions and had too much pain to be comfortable on the bike. It wasn’t that landings were killing me, but it was causing too much fear and hesitation because of possible hard landings. Even small jumps caused discomfort and big (for me) jumps were painful. Woods riding was ok, but to me, woods riding is just that – ok. I much prefer the track.

    As a last gasp effort at age 35, I recently purchased a set of the quite expensive Fasst Flex bars from Fasst Co. I figured I didn’t have anything to lose – Fasst Co offers a 30 day money back guarantee and from what I’ve seen, straight used flex bars sell pretty high on ebay.

    On my first test ride last week in the woods, things went pretty well. I repeatedly jumped a medium size natural jump and didn’t have any pain to speak of. I was hopeful the bars would do well on the track. Still, I noticed that my arm/wrist got very tight and tired very quickly on that first ride.

    Yesterday I went to Wildwood Lake MX on the Ohio side of the river near Parkersburg, WV. Wildwood is a 1 mile outdoor style track built on a hillside. 60 foot and 90 foot tabletops, a couple doubles, a couple gap jumps, a couple singles, a fast downhill, two challenging uphills out of tight corners, kicker jump on the top of a steep downhill. Conditions were firm to really muddy depending on the elevation.

    I could not be more pleased with the bars. I split time on my bike with my buddy (his first time on a track) for 3 hours and 15 minutes. I had minor discomfort ONLY ONE TIME the whole day when I got cross rutted on the face of the 90 foot table and dive bombed the landing (I’m not fast enough to come close to downsiding it with the short run-up – only about 20% of the riders are). The pain was so minimal on that hard (forks bottomed) landing that instead of pulling off the track and calling it a day (as I would have done last year) I kept going a couple more laps. The rest of the day went well and I actually had a little bit of speed for the first time since the injury (which is about all the speed I ever had. . .).

    Even though I’ve hardly ridden in the last year, I had zero arm pump, my wrist didn’t weaken or tire out any sooner than my arms and legs, and my wrist isn’t any more sore today than it normally is after any activity (which is to say that it’s not sore except when moved in a certain, limited direction). The riding actually feels like it is loosening up my wrist – if that makes any sense.

    I am convinced that if I had installed the flex bars 2 years ago, I would not have broken my wrist when I overjumped the double. Given that having a cast put on cost about the same as the bars, it makes the bars seem to be a bit more reasonable in price.

    In conclusion, I’m back to racing again thanks to the Fasst Co. Flex bars (and no, I am not an employee of Fasst Co.).

    I’d recommend them to anyone, but especially riders who have wrist/elbow/shoulder injuries.

    Rob Bright, Esq.

    By the way, Flexxbars are not only the best bars on the market they are the best aftermarket part you can buy, period. I can ride all day on the trail without arm pump and at least 50% longer on the track. Thanks for coming up with the idea, it makes riding a lot more enjoyable. Good work.

    Regards,
    Brad Anderson

    The Fasst Flexx bar is the best handlebar that I have ever used. I am very particular about bar position as I like a very flat feeling to my position, but the 12 degree bar was perfect right from the start. As per your suggestion I ran the blue elastomers first, and I’m sticking with them. The best thing about the bar is that you do not notice any flexing action until you need it.

    The bar locks with upward motion so I never felt insecure about jerking on them to loft the nose, however when hitting square-edged bumps, roots, or on jump landings I was able to maintain more control of my bike because the Flexx bar soaked up the hits nicely. Arm pump was not an issue because I did not have to grip my bar as tightly as I used to on a normal bar. Switching to the Fasst Flexx bar required no learning curve, but jumping back on a bike equipped with normal tapered bars felt decidedly weird and uncomfortable. Thank you again, Cole you have a phenomenal product!

    Thank you!

    I recently purchased a set of your bars. I absolutely love them! They made all the difference in the world for me. I started riding (woods) again after about a twenty five year layoff. I was ready to give up riding because of hand, arm, and shoulder fatigue. I wasn’t having fun. I could only make about one third of the loop that my friends ride because I was so fatigued.

    After I installed the Flexx Bars (w/blue cushions) I was able to make the whole ride. I was faster and less fatigued the whole day. I was hoping the Flexx Bars would make my riding experience somewhat better. Let’s just say that they far exceeded my expectations.

    I have been telling everyone I talk to what a difference the bars made for me, and how wonderful I think they are. The price of the bars was worth every penny. I wouldn’t hesitate to spend the money on them again.

    Thanks,

    Mr. Townsend,

    I’m a 45-year old former regional B-class enduro rider who mainly just rides trails in north and central Idaho. In recent years, whenever I’ve ridden three days in any 10-day span, my right wrist has been in agony at the end of that third day and I’ve been unable to ride for at least a week.

    Orthopedic specialists, using the latest CT-scans and MRIs were unable to diagnose any problem that may have been causing this. I’d about given up hope of being able to fully enjoy the my summers in Idaho until I heard of your handlebars via the Dirt Rider test.

    I installed a pair and just got back from riding four days straight in my favorite north-central Idaho trail system and am overjoyed to report that my wrist didn’t act up at all. Your bars have made the difference between me riding and not.

    Thank you very much, -Joe Dowd

    Cole,

    Just wanted to give you a little update on how insane the Felxx system is! I rode i5Mx in pretty rough conditions. I’m one of those guys that has to have my bars positioned just right or I’m not comfortable. But I have to tell ya, I was at home with these bars immediately. There awesome. The square edges and braking bumps on the track were nearly un noticeable.

    It was a night and day difference. I’ve been using rubber mounted setups lately that I thought were great. But this is really a big difference. After riding with the FLEXX bars the $ price point is no longer an issue. They are totally worth the cash, and built like a Mack truck. I don’t how a person could break, or bend these unless you wad 4th gear pinned. Thanx again!

    Hi Cole!!!
    I got to test out my new Flexxbars….and all I can say is WOW!!!! We raced a GP race yesterday – that’s the first time I’ve gotten to use them…….and I needed those! J There were a few times I was cringing and waiting for the bars to get ripped out of my hands……on some square edged holes…..but that bone wrenching never happened!! I lasted much longer than I normally would have with my Pro Tapers! For someone like me….who lacks the fore-arm and hand strength that most guys have…these bars really help even out the field!! Jason (my husband) and I were a team, and we came in 6th out of 60 teams of bikes and 1st out of the quad teams……

    So I just wanted to say thank you again for the sponsorship. Also, whenever you guys get some stickers, I would love to slap them all over my quad!

    Have a great day!

    I have been running your Fasst FleXX handlebar’s for about 4 months now. They work exceptionally well on my 2000 CR250R. The softer the lasimer the better they really work (for me at least). They are really great when you are hauling with your head over the bars. I have tried everything from the stock bar, (that everyone takes off when they buy their bike) to the regular Renthals that bends when you drop your bike off the stand. I have tried the stiff twin wall Renthals that give you that wow look, but you can feel every pebble in the dirt! The world famous Pro-Tapers that have so many bends that you don’t know what to choose from.

    I have been doing really well in the District 37 AMA series in the 250 expert class and battling with the #1 plate holder from last year on my first year of racing. If I go to the starting line a little early to save a spot for myself, people always ask me who makes those bars and do they work good. Every race I go to now, at least a dozen or so riders ask me about your bars. I tell them the whole story and then I say the only real way you will be able to try them out is if you go pick up a pair yourself, you won’t be disappointed! Every race I go to, I spot a few more FleXX bars on people’s bikes. When I warm my bike up on the race line, when I rev it up the whole bike shakes like a mad dog, but the handlebars don’t.

    I had crashed super hard at a Grand Prix not long ago and when the bike came down it landed right on the handlebars, messed up the levers, ripped the grips almost right off and ripped the treads right out of the 1″ bar adapters. The FleXX handlebars only got a scratch on the anodizing. I fixed all the other parts of my bike and I am still running the same FleXX handlebar to this point in the season of racing. Your FleXX handlebar system works great and I will continue running them. They have made a big improvement in my riding and I have noticed less body soreness after the races. FleXX handlebars are the best handlebars out there! If more desert riders tried them, they would love them too. Give them a try!

    By far the best bar for reducing vibration, and gaining stability that you can put on your bike. I was able to ride harder, longer with the FleXX system. The bars allowed me to charge harder into big hits and bumps without fear of losing control.

    In all of my 34 years of riding motorcycles I have never seen a bolt on product make such a difference. I can honestly tell you that the FleXX Handlebars by FASST CO. are the best handlebar I have ever used, by FAR! The first few laps you take with the new bars will sell you. I went off recommendations from Danny Lowers and Rob Townley and am sure glad I did. You know that feeling when you have over jumped something and you know that it’s going to hurt? GONE. No more pain from hard landings.

    You know that arm pump you get on the third lap? GONE too! I came up short on a double at Perris and bruised the bottom of both feet, if it wasn’t for the FleXX handlebars I know I would have had major wrist pain or maybe even a break. Trust me on this one, get the FleXX handlebars by FASST CO. Retail is about $300, tell them that I sent you. Whatever price you end up paying is well worth it. The bars come with different colored bumpers that go from soft to hard depending on your needs.

    Ed, thanks for the tip about Fasstco FleXX bars. I can’t tell you how much they have helped Ross. As you know Ross is recovering from two broken wrists. (one of which needed surgery) The first lap he had them on he noticed how much easier they were on his wrists, by the third lap he said he couldn’t believe the difference!!!. At the end of the day he said his arm-pump just didn’t happen and that basically the FleXX bars made his suspension feel like it was working better than normal.

    Just wanted to send a message and say thank you for the handlebars. I tested them out last night and was a little hesitant to ride because I hurt my wrists last week with my other handlebars. I could not believe how much they absorbed the impact when you landed. Didn’t even hurt my wrists.

    Before when I landed hard or landed at all for that matter it felt like my wrists were going to shatter. Last night riding I didn’t feel any impact. The handlebars seemed to absorb it all. Felt great going into corners also. Felt myself coming out of corners alot faster. I am scared this is too good to be true so hopefully they will continue to work out, but so far so good and I am pumped that I can use the vibration inserts with the flex bars so now hopefully I can ride even longer without the arm pump. Thanks guys. Phone support has been very helpful also

    Cole,
    My name is Gregg Arnold, I just wanted to pass-on my deep appreciation for the deal you gave me, I am very thankful.
    As for the bars, I’ve used them a few times now and they KICK-ASS!!!

    I suffer from arthritis in my hands and wrists (very severe case for my age). I love to ride (and occasionally race) motocross, but in the past as the day wore on I would begin to suffer a lot of pain. The day after was usually worse but my love for moto outweighed the pain so I just dealt with it.

    This is now a thing of the past and I couldn’t be happier!!! The FleXX Bars have literally taken the wrist pain away. I can definitely go harder (less slow) for longer. I’m having more fun riding now than I’ve had in years….Thank You.

    Just so you know, I’ve recommended your bars to several people. I race 35-39 Beg. class but should be moving to novice soon (probably when I hit 40 this year). I’ve raced in the Police/Fire Summer Games and will be racing in the Fire and Police MX Nationals (FPMX)this spring. I’ve got plenty of your stickers visible. If there’s anything else I can do for you please let me know…….

    Thanks Again,

    P.S. You should check into setting up your truck at the FPMX this year…..Lots of old guys like me with lots of aches and pains….and lots of money. Firepolicemx.com, if you haven’t already seen it.

    I was concerned that the Fasst company “FleXX system” would not live up to the expectations that I had, after my first look at the bars. After riding with the “FleXX system” and having some of my riders try them I have to admit that they are the next great thing in Motocross.
    We tried a conventional bar first to make a comparison and this is what we found.

    * 1. The Fasst company “FleXX system” cut the vibration down by approximately 50%.
    * 2. The “FleXX system” allowed the rider to relax when hitting faces, compression’s and braking bumps.
    * 3. The “FleXX system” allowed the rider to ride longer without fatigue (to the arms and upper body).
    * 4. Another area that we feel is very important is that the “FleXX system” lessened the chance of injury from impact to the wrist and upper body area by allowing the “system” to absorb part of the impact to these areas. We feel that the Fasst company “FleXX system” will allow a rider to ride and race longer and safer. I will be riding with the “FleXX system” on every bike I own and feel that this “system” should be part of every riders program.

    As an older guy of 54 yrs, my days of setting the world on fire on a motocross track (or trying to anyway) are long over. But I still love to ride !
    Having severe arthritus in my right wrist was not only taking the fun out of riding, but threating to end it. After two or three laps, my hand would go completely numb.
    I took a chance and got your “Bionic Bars” and the numbness is gone ! Sharp jolts that used to make me pull off the track and call it a day
    no longer exist ! What Bump ?

    Chris and Cole of Fasst Co. have been tremendous help to me over my past several years in racing with Flexxbars. I suffered a hyper extension of the wrist in 2003 and Fasst Co. Flexxbars are truly the difference between racing and taking up another hobby. I will admit my skeptacisim at first, however the proof was revealed after testing them out for a few rides.

    I have been running Fasst Co. Flexxbars on my machines since 2005 exclusively. With my wrist injuries(on both wrists) I can ride without my hands going numb, and sleep through the night after a ride without constantly waking up to excersise my wrists due to pain. This may sound too far fetched but it is truth. My husband’s and our back up bike does not have Fasst Co. bars and I refuse to ride them for more than a lap or two because my clutch hand falls asleep, and I feel like the machine is a rattle trap since I am not used to the vibrations after riding with my Flexxbars. Rigid bars are a thing of the past, and so is filling your rigids with silicone!
    Buy them – You will never regret it and wonder what took you so long to come to your senses!

    Thank you Fasst Co. for making a product that allows me to continue to enjoy my passion;Racing-because knitting is for grannies!

    I am from South Africa and have raced motocross and off roads for the past 30 years, I recently fitted my 2012 KTM 250 XC with a set of FLEXX Bars and I must say I am highly impressed. Most of my riding consists of whooped out forest trails and rocks, I definately felt the difference in that I am able to ride longer and do not suffer from the dreaded arm pump, I also have a injured wrist which slowed me down due to impact during my rides but with these bars there is no impact, Highly recommended and I will never run standard bars on any of my bikes again.

    I am 43 years old. I broke my scaphoid, right wrist, about two years ago. It
    took about a year and a half for it to heal enough for me to try riding
    again. I only went a couple times in several months because riding set back
    how my wrist felt substantially. I hesitated for months buying these bars
    but finally i thought, no matter how many times i read how great they are,
    the only way i’ll know if they make riding possible again for me, is to try
    them for myself. So, how did they work for me and my fragile wrist? I’ve
    been riding 3 times in the last 4 weeks, with no pain at all. Not while i
    ride, not later that nite, not the next day. The second time i went to the
    track with these bars, i rode my sons bike, just to see if the flex bars
    really were that good. when we pulled back to the truck, i could not believe
    how harsh his bars were and he could not believe how much better my flex
    bars felt compared to his. And he is a teenager with healthy wrists! I can
    ride now as hard as i want and none of the harshness that used to upset my
    wrist is present anymore. I know everyone has different injuries and heals
    differently, but for me, these bars made riding possible, and enjoyable
    again. Thank You for developing such a great product. I’ve been riding since
    i was a teenager, and the thought of having to quit was depressing. Simply
    put these bars gave me my hobby back, and all the enjoyment i get from
    riding. Can’t put a price on that…….

    Fasst Flexx,

    Thanks for the great product and customer service. I talked to Cole in tech support multiple times on the phone prior to buying a set of your bars trying to determine the best way to set up my ’13 KTM 350 xcf-w to provide for both a Rekluse Left Hand Rear Brake (LHRB) and the long KTM hydraulic clutch on the left side of the bars.

    Cole mocked up several bikes and sent me several picture showing various set up options as well as showing me how to modify my Cycra CRM hand guards so that I didn’t have to spend another $130 on new hand guards to go along with the new Flexx bars. We had a lot of difficulty trying to get the clutch and LHRB to fit on the bars and still allow enough adjustment to put the LHRB and clutch about 30 degrees below horizontal so that the levers were easily accessible when standing up. I had just about given up when Cole called and suggested putting the LHRB perch below the clutch perch, rather than on top. That set up worked perfectly and was actually much better than the reverse (which is the way I’d originally set things up on my stock bars). Now the LHRB is about 30 degrees down and the clutch is just below horizontal which works well with my Rekluse Clutch since I only need to fan the clutch occasionally and use it to testing the adjustment on the Rekluse Clutch.

    I took the bike and new bars out for a 70 mile ride in rocks, single track and lots of whoops in mountains west of Colorado Springs… WHAT A DIFFERENCE. I got no fatigue or pain in my wrists and thumb joints like I used to (I’ve got arthritis in my hands and wrists from way too many crashing and creeping old age (:-

    From my perspective this was the best addition I could make to my new KTM. The bars are expensive, but worth every penny.

    Thanks again to Cole for his extra effort and OVER THE TOP customer service.

    As I prepare for the 2014 racing season, I find myself reflecting on what has made an impact on my past racing seasons. What has worked, and what maybe hasn’t. What was essential to success, and what ended up not being beneficial at all. When doing endurance racing, there are many things that can have a serious impact on racing success. Nutrition, the bike, the equipment, the gear. It all plays a part in the end result.

    One piece of equipment that I know that has been absolutely essential to my success at events like the 12 and 24 Hours of Starvation Ridge are my Fasst Co. Flexx Handlebars. I started running these bars two years ago and they hands down changed my ability to stay on the bike for the long hours required to train and execute these types of events.

    In 15 years of racing downhill mountain bikes nationally, and now off road motorcycles, I have done some damage to my body. I shattered my right hand and wrist 10 years ago, have had three shoulder surgeries, and am out of fingers to count broken bones on.

    When I started training for these ulta-endurance events, these injuries started to come back to haunt me. My shoulders and wrists would start to fatigue long before my lungs or legs would. I was doing everything I could from a training standpoint to strengthen these joints but was still having problems.

    When I had exhausted all other options, I decided to try the Flexx bars. All I can say is I wish I had done it years sooner. These bars made a night and day difference in my endurance. My upper body would go significantly longer without fatigue or pain from old injuries. I also saw a reduction in the number of blisters I was getting. The elastomer system also allowed me to fine tune the feel of the bars for different courses so I could soften of stiffen the amount of flex they provided me and adjust the damping this way as well.

    The first year I ran my Fasst Co. Flexx bars, I was able to finish 6th in the Ironman class at the largest 24 Hour event in the country, and win the series title. I credit my Flexx bars with helping make that possible. They made a huge difference and I highly recommend them to anyone who has had upper body injuries, wants to go longer on their bike, or simply wants to improve their ride quality. They are a top notch product that I won’t ride or race without.

    “Hey Jason” This is Gary Billings over here in VA. Just to let ya know I’m very thankful for you guys have done over there at Fasst Company. You all have made my riding/racing very pleasurable and enjoyable. With a right wrist that has had the Perilunate bone dislocated and the ligaments torn in it along with a Triceps Tendon rupture,these bars have really made a difference.
    I doubt to this day that I would be back racing with out the help of these Flexx bars. There is no way I could ride pain free with a rigid bar.

    I just had the second surgery within a year on my left elbow from a Torn Tricep Tendon. The fist time I just didn’t let it heal long enough before I went back to racing. I gave it only 4 months and I was back at it. This time I gave it 11 months before I started back.

    When I finally rode for the first time last week I was amazed how easy and fast it all came back and the funny thing was,I never got arm pump. These bars really help with my wrist and elbow. You just don’t have any idea how well these bars work on my injuries. I can ride pain free without any issues from my injured areas.

    You guys have really developed a handle bar that is truly amazing and I’m just not saying that either. If there was a way you could feel what I felt in my right wrist when I was riding with a rigid bar you would pass out. The Flexx bars lets me ride without any pain while I’m racing/riding and without any dull aching in my wrist the next day after a race.

    Hands down! there is nobody out there that can hold a light to you guys. You all have developed a Handle bar that is spectacular. It is unreal how these bars feel when you have a injury. As long as I’m racing/riding I will all ways have a Flexx Bar on my bike.

    Thanks Again!

Features


    1. Controlled and consistent

      By only articulating near the same plane as the forks in a natural motion for your body, riders do not notice the bar moving. This is an often over looked point as any other product that claims to absorb abuse does so in 360°, which is not consistent or controlled, creating a vague feeling. A rider will not notice a properly set up Flexx Handlebar, they will notice the front end tracking better, minimized abuse transferred and the ability to better focus on line selection instead of holding on.


    1. Dramatically reduces vibration

      The handle is completely isolated from touching metal to metal through the use of our Fiber Bushings at the pivot point as well as our Elastomers. Both the Fiber Bushings and Elastomers have vibration reduction characteristics engineered into them resulting in less vibration transferred to you.


    1. Tunable to your needs

      Our Compression and Rebound Elastomers absorb abuse typically transferred to your upper body. With 4 Compression and 3 Rebound Elastomers to choose from you can fine tune your Flexx Handlebar to suit your preferences.


    1. Component ready

      Numerous accessories available such as handguard mounts, rebound elastomer kits, dash boards, grips and more available in our store.

Flexx Handlebar Warranty Program

We are able to offer our warranty program to you because we have so few damaged bars. If you’ve crashed hard enough to damage the Flexx Handlebar we would like to help you get rolling again.

Plain and simple, we want to eliminate any buying resistance you have. We are committed to getting our Flexx Handlebar on YOUR bike, because we know once you ride with it you won’t ride without it.

We appreciate your business and want you to have an exceptional experience with our company. Our mission has always been to build value-added components and strive for the best customer service in the industry. We tell you the truth first, the things other companies are scared or resistant to telling you, because we value our relationship with you and want it based on honesty.

Why we do not offer replaceable parts for Flexx Handlebars
We get this question a lot. Due to the modular construction of the Flexx Handlebar it is easy to assume replaceable parts are available. We do not offer replaceable parts for several reasons. If a main component of the Flexx Handlebar has been damaged the whole system has taken a major shock which could result in a stress riser forming in a separate component than the one showing damage. This stress riser cold allow the bar to fail while you are riding, which is something we want to keep from happening to you. By only offering complete bars we put you in a safer position, which is our #1 concern.

Warranty Program Details

If your Flexx Handlebar has been damaged in an accident/crash we would like to offer you our damage replacement program for a period of one year from the time of purchase. This program allows you to purchase a Flexx Handlebar System at 50% off the retail price plus the cost of shipping when you send your old Flexx Handlebar to us.

How to send your bars in

  • Remove the Flexx Handlebar you wish to submit for warranty. Please do not clean any mud, grease or debris for the Flexx Handlebar, we want to receive it just the way it hit the ground.
  • Call us for a RA# (877) 306-1801
  • Attach a note to the Flexx Handlebar with your name, address, RA#, and phone number.
  • Send your Flexx Handlebar to:
  • Fasst Company
    Attn: Warranty Dept.
    1480 South Sandhill Drive
    Washington, UT 84780

Exceptions to the program

The Flexx Handlebar 50% off warranty program is only available to the original purchaser of the Flexx Handlebar System. It is not available to second hand owners. We do not condone buying used Flexx Handlebars. We strongly discourage customers from purchasing used handlebars. Think of handlebars as you would a helmet, would you buy a used helmet? (of course not!) By not knowing how handlebars were previously cared for, treated, or crashed on you are opening yourself up to a potential liability for failure.

Our warranty program does not apply to Flexx Handlebars that have been bought second hand. We have seen a damaged handlebars sold to unsuspecting customers online, ending in disappointment for the trusting customer.

Manufacturer Warranty

This product is warranted against manufacture defects for a period of 180 days from the purchase date. If you feel your Flexx Handlebar System has a manufacturing defect please send the Flexx System and proof of purchase to us. Please note: this does not cover the product being installed incorrectly, neglected, cut, trimmed, altered, abused or damaged from crashing.

Servicing your Flexx Handlebars

Flexx Handlebars manufactured prior to August 2010 do require routine maintenance to the pivot points to maintain consistent performance.

Please find a step by step video below, walking you through how to properly maintain your Flexx Handlebar. In the right column are also specific instructions on how to service your Flexx Handlebar.

Factory Fresh Service

We also offer our free Factory Fresh in-house service program for your Flexx Handlebars.

This service requires you OBTAIN an RA# from us, as well as read, print and sign our Service Order Form. Next ship us your bars with the RA# and signed release form, Attn: Factory Fresh.

The Factory Fresh service program for Flexx Handlebars is free with the purchase of a Service Kit.

The Factory Fresh program consists of disassembling and cleaning your Flexx Handlebars, a thorough servicing of the pivots and reassembly with a Flexx Handlebar Service Kit. The Service Kit consists of new o-rings, clips, bolts, washers, and nuts as well the compression and rebound elastomers of your choice at a cost of $20.

Please note that this is only a clean and lube job, in no way does this make your handlebar stronger, last longer or take away any prior damage/neglect. If your Flexx Handlebar is damaged in anyway we will inform you of the damage and what your options are. We will not return damaged handlebars to you as it is a safety concern and liability to yourself.

Proper Handle Resistance

Your handles may have some drag or resistance when the elastomer is removed. The drag is caused by the exacting tolerance required for the Flexx Handlebar to offer the utmost in control and reliability. Flexx Handlebar pivot points are most likely the most exacting tolerance on your entire machine and must be so. Too large of a tolerance will not the yield the precise control you as a rider require to perform at your best. It is not only acceptable but preferred to have some drag on the handles.

Each side of every Flexx Handlebar System is measured with a strain gauge to be sure the resistance of each handle is within our tolerance. If your bar rebounds to its present ride height after being compressed you should be good to go. If you have any questions concerning this please contact us.

*If your pivot pins are damaged they will need to be replaced. A Pivot Pin kit is an additional $20.

The Step by Step Service Process

Two key things to remember

1) Do not mix the pivot pins up. The left pin needs to go back in the left hole, and the right pin in the right hole. We separate our pins and hone our pivot holes to .0001 of an inch. It is crucial to have proper fitment of each pin so there is not front to back play.

2) The second key point is do not strike the pivot pin directly with a hammer, press or any other form of tool. A dowel or punch must be used to protect the pivot pin from “mushrooming”. If you do not have a proper dowel or punch to match the pivot pin diameter you can use an old bolt to protect the pin.

Tools Required

  • 12 or 13mm wrench
  • 6mm allen
  • c-clip pliers
  • punch
  • hammer or press (air hammer is preferred, but not required)
  • safety glasses

Servicing your Flexx Handlebar can be done on or off the machine. It is easier to do off the machine if you have a proper vise. Be sure if you do place the Flexx Handlebar in a vise you use plastic jaws or a similar product to protect the Flexx Handlebar from being damaged by the jaws. It is also important to note that whenever working with c-clips that proper safety eyewear is worn. C-clips have a tendency to fly off at warp speed when being removed or installed and although we know you want your Flexx Handlebar to perform as it is intended to it is not worth losing an eye over!

  1. Remove the elastomer nuts, slide the bolts back, then remove the elastomers.
  2. Remove the rear c-clips and rear crossbar.
  3. Tap the pivot pins forward slightly which allows easier access to the front c-clips. Remember not to strike the pivot pins directly.
  4. Remove the front c-clips and front crossbar.
  5. Now drive the pins completely out. Again, be sure not to strike or press on the pivot pin directly. Do not mix the pins up.
  6. Clean pivot holes and pivot pins. Remove the old o-rings and replace with new ones.
  7. Lube the pivot pins as well as pivot holes with anti-seize.
  8. Place the pivot pin in the back side of the bar, square to the bore. You will know the pin is square to the bore when it will not rock easily up, down, or to the side without applying force.
  9. Now tap the pivot pin all the way through the handle out the other side. It is easiest to replace the c-clips if the pin is extended out slightly past the crossbar.
  10. Place one o-ring on the front, outside of each pin, and then place the crossbars on to the pins. The extra 0-ring will keep the crossbars from vibrating. You may need to place an extra o-ring on the back side as well.
  11. Install the front crossbar and c-clips. Carefully tap the pins back until the c-clip is against the crossbar.
  12. Install the rear crossbar and clips. Be sure all of the clips are securely in their designated groove by pulling the crossbars away from each other.
  13. Install nuts, bolts and elastomers.

The most commonly asked questions about Flexx Handlebars

Will the Flexx Handlebar System work with steering dampers?

Yes, the Flexx Handlebar System will work with steering stabilizers from all manufactures. To be able to use an over the bar stabilizer with Flexx Handlebars you need to replace the straight crossbars with steering damper crossbars. For new orders your bars can be built with damper crossbars at no extra charge. If you are an existing Flexx Handlebar rider and need to order damper crossbars please call us or order in our store.

What handguard options do you have for the Flexx Handlebar System?

There are several handguard options available. We offer our Handguard Hitch which is an external mount that bolts to the pivot pin and allows you to use most brands of wrap around handguards.
Cycra has also built a handguard that bolts directly onto the Flexx Handlebar. The Cycra Pro Bend for Flexx Handlebars is the simplest way to mount handguards on Flexx Handlebars.

Do any other handguard systems work on Flexx Handlebars?

Flexx Handlebars will accept any handle mounted “flag” or roost deflection guard given you have enough handle room. Most Flexx Handlebar riders have plenty of room as Flexx Handlebars offer 9″ of handle room while a traditional bar only offers 8″. Handguards that mount off the bar mount or triple clamp will also work with Flexx Handlebars if set up so the handguard will pivot on a shoulder bolt. Please email or call if you have further handguard mount questions.

How often do they need serviced?

Flexx Handlbars purchased after July 2010 are maintenance free. If you purchased Flexx Handlebars after July 2010, you do not need to service your bars at all. The current generation of Flexx Handlebars utilize a fiber bushing to prevent the need for any service or maintenance. To check to make sure you have the newer version, quickly remove your crossbars and look for the bushing encompassing the pivot pin.

Flexx Handlebars pre-July 2010 require regular maintenance. If you’re like most people and use a pressure washer to clean your bike or ATV regularly, the Flexx Handlebar pivot pins should routinely checked for proper articulation and serviced if needed. We also offer a free service through our Factory Freshprogram. (hyperlink to Factory Fresh info on service page.) Also note, lack of maintenance to the pivot is not a cause for warranty.

Why doesn’t Fasst Company install a zerk fitting on Flexx Handlebars?

The 2011 Flexx Handlebar does not require any lubriant at the pivot point. For previous generation Flexx Handlebars we elected not to install a zerk being that our most important task is providing you a product that has proper structural integrity. By drilling and tapping a hole in the handle area for a zerk fitting stress riser are created. Stress riser can lead to premature failure. We will not take the risk of installing a zerk fitting at the pivot point. Through our manufacturing process we go to great lengths to minimize or eliminate stress risers.
