Ride Longer, Ride Stronger
To reduce vibrational fatigue and hand-arm numbness, a proprietary foam called Vibrocore™ is injected into Spank Industries handlebars and SPANK Vibrocore™ rims. Adding just 25g to 30g to bar weights, the low density, pressurized core performs a similar function to the soft tissue inside bones, increasing inner wall strength and absorbing vibrations.
We hate getting arm pump; there's nothing worse than suffering on a long descent or having to cut a riding trip short due to a lack of grip strength or pain in the forearms. That's why the crew here at the Gravity Cartel feels so strongly about the SPANK Vibrocore™ system. Used in conjunction with proper bike and suspension setup, it just works.
In addition to the vibration damping qualities, Vibrocore™ also increases the fatigue life and durability of the products as well as stiffness. (one great example of this is a full can of soda vs an empty one)
