A high-spec bar at a value price, the V-Drive Flat packs plenty of punch. With a choice of two sweeps and five lengths in each, there’s a V-Drive Flat to suit almost any application. The lengths range from an XC race-ready 580mm to an all-mountain 740mm – it’s a great choice for a long-travel 29er. The shorter bars are made from 6061-T6 aluminium, the longer ones from 2014-T6. In both cases, the tubing is butted and tapered for a balance of weight, strength and stiffness and then shot-peened for fatigue resistance.
