Renthal 7/8 handlebars re-wrote history when they became the first aftermarket aluminium handlebar to be fitted as OEM on a Japanese motocross motorcycle.
All Honda CR/CRF and Kawasaki KX/KXF models (except minis) are fitted with a Renthal 7/8″ handle bar as original equipment.
The exclusive aluminium alloy and the advanced manufacturing processes we use result in a handlebar which is more than capable of withstanding the extreme rigours of motocross and supercross riding and racing.
The following features are integral to the Renthal 7/8″ handlebars.
7/8″ (22mm) external diameter to fit most standard sized clamps and controls
7010 T6 Aluminium, which Renthal has exclusive rights to this specially developed alloy, for the manufacture of handlebars.
High impact strength, lightweight and excellent vibration dampening
Shot peened surface finish to help prevent fatigue failure
Knurling – Grip end only – increases bonding between bar and grip
No knurling in clamp area, this could cause a stress riser and lead to fatigue failure
Anodising – a 15 step anodising process forms an integral coating giving protection against corrosion
Renthal’s copyrighted, bonded lightweight single bolt clamping system for the cross-brace* , greatly increases strength whilst still allowing flex
Laser etched positioning grid
The highest quality – 35 individual steps/processes required in the production
of each bar and 58 separate quality checks made.
A specially developed injection moulded crossbar pad is included with every handlebar.
Suitable for all dirt bikes that use 7/8″ handlebars (standard size, not Pro Taper sized)
