Designed using Race Face's optimized carbon technology process, NEXT bars are an engineering master piece. All NEXT bars are manufactured with a leading edge unidirectional carbon & a precise manufacturing process. This process allows us to design our bars to pass our DH strength requirements at a low XC weight level. Next bars are manufactured with a leading edge composite material which allows us to reach our high strength requirements at an impressively low weight. Daily destructive testing from each production run ensures each bar meets the exacting standards set by our engineers. Highest strength to weight ratio of any carbon bars available today.
