ODI Releases CFT Handlebar
ODI IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE RELEASE OF THE CFT HANDLEBAR
Riverside, CA – After more than twelve months of testing and development, ODI is proud to announce the launch of the Controlled Flex Technology (CFT) Handlebars. CFT handlebars feature a lightweight, 6061 aluminum, designed to provide extra flex and comfort. Building off a stable platform we integrated our patent pending cross bar to provide extra strength without compromising the feel of the bar.
“Utilizing a rubber elastomeric shock, we’ve been able to control the flex that occurs in the six thousand series aluminum,” brand manager Kevin Stevens explains. “We’ve limited it to 3mm to ensure that in extreme situations like over jumping or crashing, the cross bar actually engages and provides the extra strength needed.”
The design came about after months of testing and working with riders and teams such as L and MC Racing. Team Co-Owner and King of Supercross Jeremy McGrath has given his stamp of approval and team rider Andrew Short will line up to Anaheim 1 using the new CFT bars.
“It’s been a great year working with Larry, Jeremy and Andrew and I’m really excited to get these in the hands of the public,” continued Stevens. “We set out to create something unique and innovative as there are a lot of quality handlebars out there. I think we’ve definitely provided a product that will help improve comfort without compromising things like weight, looks and cost.”
