Absorb the abuse on both directions
Rebound elastomers further absorb high frequency abuse and vibration. The Standard Rebound Elastomers are half the height of our Compression Elastomers, with a different chemical make up to control the articulation of the Flexx Handlebars during the upward movement.
We now offer a Short Rebound Kit for riders that need a little extra clearance. The Short Rebound Kit consists of a shorter bolt and rebound elastomer. Which can be seen in picture #2 & 3 above.
Elastomer color break down:
(#1) Red - Hard
(#2) Yellow - Medium
(#3) Red Short-Hard, short for more clearance.
Most common setup
Most riders prefer Red Rebounds. Red Rebounds absorb abuse but don’t allow you to pull up on the handles.
Black Rebound Elastomers work well for our SX and EX riders, but move out of the confines of a stadium and those riders are using Red Rebounds.
Yellow VS. Red
Yellow Rebounds absorb more abuse than the Red but allow the rider to slightly pull up on the bar. There are some extremely fast racers that choose Yellow Rebounds, claming they hit obstacles harder with them.
Works with any Flexx Handlebar
Older generation Flexx Handlebars that did not come with Rebound Elastomers can be upgraded with this kit.
