FSA Adds Wider, Longer Mountain Bike Handlebars, Seatposts, Plus New 104/64 BCD for Afterburner Cranks
Following a range of new goodies introduced at Sea Otter, FSA has added wider flat and riser mountain bike handlebars and longer seatpost options to several lines.
The SL-K and Afterburner handlebars both keep the 620mm width and add a 700mm and 740mm option for both flat and low-rise bars. Complementing those are longer 400mm seat posts for the SL-K, Afterburner, K-Force Light, and XC 190 lines. Options now include both 350mm to 400mm. These should be available late June/early July.
Pictured after the break, the new Afterburner Cranks now have a standard 104/64mm BCD bolt hole diameter option along with their three-arm spider BB386EVO model. FSA marketing rep Mike Lawless says they’re very versatile and can run as single, double or triple chainring setups, and even with a bash guard, making them more compatible with 29ers.
The Afterburner cranksets are available in BB30 and standard MegaExo (normal outboard bearing) BB with the 104/64mm BCD. BB30 model weight is 861g for the matte black anodized hollow forged alloy arms with rings. Their BB adds 63g.
