Life Support Bars

Price: $68.95

Doublecross "Life Support Bars" are product that was designed to stop handlebar failure.  My own personal experience has brought "Life Support Bars" to market.  I had a set of bars fail and it sent me to the hospital.  Always trying to make parts better, I decided to add a "Life Support Gusset".

  • DC bars are made of the finest 4130 Chromoly tubing available.
  • 13 butts in the tubing to save a little weight and a gusset.
  • Backsweep is 10 degrees and Upsweep is 1 degree making DC cbars perfectly natural to your body when riding. I consulted an orthopedic surgeon friend that helped with our sweeps.
