RENTHAL McGRATH/LUSK/STEWART 7/8 HANDLEBARS
Renthal 7/8″ handlebars re-wrote history when they became the first aftermarket aluminium handlebar to be fitted
as OEM on a Japanese motorcycle. Renthal employs extremely close tolerances and an exclusive alloy,
specifically developed for the manufacture of handlebars with specific properties that help limit vibration
(a common cause of rider fatigue).
Combined with the patented clamps and brace
system Renthal 7/8” bars provide riders with the perfect amount of flex whilst maintaining the strength
required for the rigours of Motocross and Supercross.
The clamp system is bonded to the bar using a high shear adhesive to minimize the chance of clamp movement.
7/8″ (22mm) external diameter to fit most standard sized clamps and controls
7010 T6 Aluminium, which Renthal has exclusive rights to this specially developed alloy, for the manufacture of handlebars.
High impact strength, lightweight and excellent vibration dampening
Shot peened surface finish to help prevent fatigue failure
Knurling – Grip end only – increases bonding between bar and grip
No knurling in clamp area, this could cause a stress riser and lead to fatigue failure
Anodising – a 15 step anodising process forms an integral coating giving protection against corrosion
Renthal’s copyrighted, bonded lightweight single bolt clamping system for the cross-brace* ,
greatly increases strength whilst still allowing flex
Laser etched positioning grid
The highest quality – 35 individual steps/processes required in the production of each bar and 58 separate quality checks made.
A specially developed injection moulded crossbar pad is included with every handlebar (as pictured in main image)
