Spank Spike 800 Race Vibrocore Handlebar

Spank Spike 800 Race Vibrocore Team Edition Handlebar

In true Spank Spike Race style, the Vibrocore has been meticulously designed, stringently tested, and continually refined for going big. Constructed of Spank’s Super-6 Aluminum, the Spike 800 Race Vibrocore handlebar implements Spank’s XGT Dual technology to create an incredibly precise and consistent wall thickness throughout the entire bar, something that wouldn’t be achievable with traditional bending and hand-grinding processes. Through a combination of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and real world testing, Spank was able to home in on high stress areas and implement their CNC Bending to optimize wall thickness throughout the bends and eliminate any unnecessary filler material that would simply weigh down the bar. Through Spank’s Micro Grain Refinement (MGR) process, proprietary metal forming methods are carried out to reduce grain size, and improve consistency and orientation for greater resilience and ductility, meaning more confidence and comfort for crushing the course.

Where the Spike Vibrocore steps into the limelight is through its Impulse and Fatigue Dampening System. Vibrocore is an intricate, low density foam material which fills the core of the handlebar, reducing the frequency, amplitude, and extent of energy waves (vibration), while only adding a minuscule 25 grams. Not only does the low density of the Vibrocore hinder the transfer of energy, but as energy waves cross material boundaries from high density to low density, they are deflected in different directions reducing their ability to build on one another or sustain vibrational frequencies. Brilliantly, Vibrocore also serves as reinforcement, meaning more stiffness and responsiveness. Spank has truly gone the extra miles to create a bar that’s designed to meet the extreme demands of gravity riding.

It's a handlebar.. but it's a sweet one

Comments about Spank Spike 800 Race Vibrocore Handlebar:

I'm a fan of Spank products and this didn't disappoint. Mid 40's and I still like to stay off the brakes so my aging hands and wrists aren't half as sturdy as they use to be. Vibrocore aside I notice I need to stop less to rest my waining grip than with the multiple carbon bars I had before. Works for me!

    Comments about Spank Spike 800 Race Vibrocore Handlebar:

    Used these bars on my 2013 s works demo. After a day of riding at Plattekill for the first time on the dh bike this season, I slightly noticed my arms to be less tired. Not a huge difference, but there definitely is one.

      Comments about Spank Spike 800 Race Vibrocore Handlebar:

      They work as intended. I can tell the vibrocore helps with arm pump and the impact is more muted, especially in the terrain i ride (rocky desert). I have these on my all mountain bike.

          Comments about Spank Spike 800 Race Vibrocore Handlebar:

          I ride mostly North Shore and Whistler Bike Park. The trails I ride are rooty with lots of rock gardens and drops, etc. These bars have given me new life because of how solid it is and how it acts as a vibration damper for my hands and forearms. No more arm pump issues!
