Thomson Aluminum DH Riser Bar 31.8 780mm 6D
Thomson's Downhill bar is 780mm wide with 12mm of rise, 6 degrees of backsweep and 4 degrees of upsweep. Built using 7050 Aluminum alloy for strength and long life. It has a 65mm wide clamping area to fit to Thomsons Direct Mount Stem, giving you the torsional stiffness of any bar/stem combination. The 31.8 center section is absolutely straight over a width of 90mm. The long straight section in the middle reduces stress concentrations, especially whem using wide Direct Mount stems.
All Thomson bars are butted and tapered in multiple steps for optimal fatigue life. The ends are thickened from 1.4 to 1.6mm to resist damage from any impacts. Thomson's bars are produced by advanced Hydraulic Press Forming to avoid the need for hand grinding. Almost all other bars are manually bent and bends are ground to appear smooth. Hydraulic Press Forming ensures very consistent wall thickness and close tolerances, especially in tapered sections. This keeps weight low and fatigue life high.
Great fit with the classic Thomson look. Together with a Thomson stem, this is the best aluminum cockpit you can get.
