Chromag Fubars OSX Handlebar
In 2020 the OSX has seen a major overhaul, with several updates and significant improvements in feel, strength-to-weight, and overall performance.
The OSX has a reputation for its perfect combination of bend and upsweep. This geometry combined with an array of color choices has made the OSX a popular choice for pretty much any discipline of mountain biking.
The OSX 2020 is the next step in Chromag's progression. By refining the shape, and utilizing variable butting, high grade alloys, and advanced heat treatment techniques, they have increased the fatigue life by over 50 percent... so much so that the fatigue test results reach over 1 million cycles.
The term heat treatment gets thrown around a lot, but most of the time the word consistency doesn’t come along with it. Depending on the batch an individual bar might be subjected to vastly different temperatures during the process. HTX ditches the disparity and provides uniform, quality heat treatment on every single bar.
A longer, more progressive taper between diameters reduces stress risers through the dimensional transitions. By increasing the tapered sections and using a larger radius Chromag has inherently built more strength into the shape of the OSX.
The OSX features aerospace grade aluminum to achieve Chromag's required properties of strength and toughness, with added resistance to stress and corrosion.
Variable butted wall thickness optimizes strength in areas where needed, while maintaining flex for a great overall feel and optimized weight.
For 2020 the OSX has seen a major overhaul, with several updates and significant improvements in feel, strength-to-weight and overall performance.
Chromag retained the essence of OSX geometry with a 25mm rise, a 5° upsweep and an 8° backsweep; while increasing the length to 800mm.
