Syntace has long been in the business of producing some of the most precise and rigorously tested products available. The Syntace Vector Carbon Handlebar is a perfect illustration of this point. It passes the extremely rigorous VR 3 DH 2002. 4 testing standards developed by Syntace. VR 3 testing subjects Syntace products to forces derived from real world, on the bike experiments in a cyclical loop of torture. The goal of all of this testing is to provide you with the highest performing and safest components on the market. This classy, understated handlebar has an air of quality and precision that you've come to expect from Syntace. By molding a titanium mesh lattice into the clamping interface, Syntace combats the crushing forces of the stem, while also offering an additional measure of durability and minimizing the possibility of slipping. A subtle and invisible detail of the Syntace Vector handlebar is the increased wall thickness in the areas where your shift and brake controls clamp the handlebar. Syntace stands behind their products, offering a 10 year warranty against manufacturing defects.
