The Metal Mulisha SX Collection is available now. The Profile Pro Clutch Perch will hit the market Sept. 1.
The Metal Mulisha SX Collection consists of handlebars, a bar kit, bar pads and grip donuts. The handlebars and pad only retail for $89.99. See the ProTaper website for additional pricing.
The handlebars are based off ProTaper’s 1-1/8-inch Contour handlebar and feature exclusive Supercross-inspired “nonsticker” Metal Mulisha insignia. The bars are made with aluminum and 5mm wall tubing, and are available in the three existing ProTaper bends, renamed after their Metal Mulisha-endorsing riders.
The bars include a high-density molded Metal Mulisha SX square pad featuring high-density closed-cell foam and exclusive graphics.
The Metal Mulisha SX Bar Kit consists of handlebars, a bar pad, grips, grip donuts and safety wire. In regard to the grips, a Metal Mulisha-inspired pattern reportedly reduces vibration and cushions impact.
The grips also feature a tacky gel-like surface compound and are designed to self-clean by shedding mud away from their surface.
The grip donuts feature soft neoprene construction, help prevent blisters on the thumb, and also feature Metal Mulisha Supercross-inspired graphics.
The XPS (Cross Pivot System) lever pivots in multiple directions, yet maintains a slim blade. This universal assembly offers two lever-reach adjustment points that accommodates a wide range of bikes and riders. The folding levers come with sealed bearings at the lever pivot and a factory-inspired quick-adjust star.
