Spike 777 Evo Handlebar

On the surface, these may look like normal bars, but the spank bars have tapered sections inside to add more material in high stress areas. By using FEA analysis the Spank was able to apply their Dual Extreme Gradual Taper technology and 3 plane CNC bending for stronger construction and less weight.  Material is added and removed where Spank determined it was required to help bring some advanced handlebars to the market.
