The Ultimate Extreme Freeride Gear - There are people out there who dream of pushing their bodies and bikes to the extreme limits and beyond. For them SPANK presents our STIFFY line of components. There are no better products on Earth for Extreme Freeride or Big-Hit applications, offering the ultimate in stiffness and strength at reasonable weights.
We spent the time to develop our XGT™ technology. XGT™ stands for Extreme Gradual Taper, which means that this stick is seriously tapered from the center zone right to the bar ends.
In the center, where the stem clamps, we use a larger wall thickness.
That thickness tapers gradually without notable transition points that can lead to stress risers, all the way to the ends where it's reduced to minimal wall thickness requirements!
This allows energy to dissipate unimpeded over a consistent and gradual tapering within the inner core.
What’s the result? Stronger bars, and improved dampening of hard hits. That means more control and less pain!
