Hey guys, im looking to buy some Moose Flex Series handlebar for my 426YZ.
Are any of you using them, or are there a better bar out there to replace my stock one. Any input would be appreciated.

I always thought that oversized bars were hecka cool and way better until my friend completely tweaked his fatbars and yet my renthal 7/8 and my bro's are fine and he's crashed just as hard as the guy with the fatbars so maybe oversized bars are overated. But I know for a fact that renthal twinwall's are the strongest out there.

Acuttlay you may what to read the info in the May issue of Racer X on page #89. The Moose flex bars took nearl 2 1/2 times the flex before failure over the Renthal Twinwall. The highest rated bars were the Pro Taper Contours overall, almost 9 times more than Twinwalls. I now this is a add for Pro Taper, but the study was done by a indepentdent lab. The principal of fatbars is to give more flex w/o a crossbar for less fatigue.

I've had good luck with my Pro Tapers, they have taken some good hits and haven't bent yet. :ride:

Well that is flex that doesn't really have to do with strength. It just measures how far they bend until they fail. If it was a strength test twinwall has it hands down. Pro tapers though are better than fat bars in my opinion

What do you think failure means? They turn to rubber? Failure mean breakage. The more flex a bar has the more resistance to breakage they have. If Twinwalls are very stiff and very heavy. Any thing will break under the right conditions. The more a item absorbs impact the more it will resist breakage.
