Spank’s new Dual XGT bars are designed using proprietary tooling which is specific to; conical diameter, rise and angle - CNC bent on three planes. Dual XGT technology enables extreme precision where bars would otherwise need to be hand-ground, resulting in imperfections and inconsistency in wall thickness. Due to the ever increasing demand for wider and lighter bars and more aggressive riding styles, Spank has developed the Dual Extreme Gradual Taper with Impact Ends. We have optimized the spread of material to counter high stress areas on the bars under extreme-use through FEA (Finite Element Analysis) and rigorous real-world testing. The Impact Ends reduce the chance of collapse in areas where the wall is thinner and in heavy impacts. These can also be used to support bar ends in the relevant disciplines. Spank have also taken extra steps to ensure that the clamp area of the bar is uniformly cylindrical and as true as possible, improving bar-stem interface which is critical under extreme loads.
Material: Zirconium Doped 7-series Alloy
Weight: from 208g to 215g

Rated 5 out of 5 by RossC Great bars!
these bars are real quality. Nice comfy angles and sweep. They tipped 209 grams (15mm rise) on my accurate digital scales. Fantastic weight for a strong Alu bar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Richie451 Very light alloy bar with ideal angle and sweep
I was surprised just how light these bars are. Not as light as carbon bars but very good for the price. Nice angles and sweep, wider than I am used too but find this very comfortable for the intended use ('flat bar' road use 29ner). Only negative would be the very gloss finish however everything seems to have clamped up tight - XT brakes & shifters plus Ritchey WCS bar ends.

I am still struggling to come to terms with how light this bar is for aluminium! The gloss black is nothing but classy.
