There are not many ways to adjust the ergonomics of a motorcycle to yourself. Especially for tall or short riders, however, this is a very important aspect. Also on the balance of the bike affects the handlebar setting, as this shifts the center of gravity of the driver. The XTRIG handlebar mount with its modular design, allows the positioning of the handlebar in 12 different handlebar position to adjust individually.
Likewise, it is often a big problem with originally installed handlebar mounts that after the fall the handlebar is twisted. XTRIG solves this by a fixed screw connection from above. The M12 screw connection ensures maximum safety in the event of a fall.
The PHDS (Progressive Handlebar Dampening System) is a system mounted on elastomers that absorbs vibration from the motor and chassis. In addition, the system dampens the forces acting on the handlebars in the horizontal and vertical directions, while maintaining perfect steering precision. Depending on the type of mounting on the triple clamp, there are many possibilities for handlebar adjustment and adaptability to the needs of each rider. Through exchangeable elastomers, the hardness can be adjusted individually (soft - green, medium - yellow (standard), hard - red). Available for 22mm and 28.6mm handlebars.
Like the PHDS, the FlexFix is a system mounted on elastomers that absorbs vibration from the motor and chassis. This system also dampens the forces acting on the handlebars in both horizontal and vertical directions, while maintaining handlebar precision. By mounting on the triple clamp, there are many possibilities for handlebar adjustment and adaptability to the needs of each rider. The low overall height of the FlexFix makes it possible to mount the handlebar 6mm lower than the M12 PHDS. Through exchangeable elastomers, the hardness can be individually adjusted (soft - green, medium - yellow (standard), hard - red). Available for 28.6mm and 36mm handlebars.
Maximum stiffness connection between handlebar and triple clamp. Due to the attachment to the triple clamp, the Fix-System also offers many possibilities for handlebar adjustment and adaptability to the respective needs of the rider. Available for 22mm, 28.6mm and 36mm handlebars.

Flex is the interaction of the stiffness and flexibility of the triple clamp. This is an important factor for the function of the fork.
Offset is the term used to describe how far the front axle is ‘offset’ from the steering axis. Bikes with a large offset are easier to handle. Smaller offsets guarantee steering precision.
The steering head angle is the angle of the steering axis to the ground. It is a result of the geometry of the frame and cannot be adjusted.
The distance between the wheel-to-ground contact point and the projected steering axis is known as the ‘trail’. The greater the offset – the smaller the trail, making the bike easier to handle. The more the offset is reduced, the greater the trail becomes – keeping you in your lines.
The balance of a bike is all about the weight distribution between the front and back wheels.
The range of options for adapting a bike is limited. This is of great importance to particularly tall or short motorcyclists. Bike balance is also influenced by the steering set-up as it shifts the biker’s centre of gravity.
It is necessary to differentiate between static and dynamic suspension travel. Static travel refers to the distance the bike rear travels from full extension to its natural suspension limit under its own weight. According to manufacturer stats, for bikes with swing deflection the distance should be between 25 and 40mm.
Dynamic travel is measured with the mounted rider. The manufacturer recommends travel from full extension to a natural suspension position under the weight of the rider of 102mm.
Torque is measured in Nm (newton-metres). Adherence to stipulated guidelines is obligatory. Too much or too little torque can have a marked influence on the performance of forks.
Fork bridge cleaners should preferably have a low pH value, since alkaline cleaning agents can encourage corrosion. After cleaning, we recommend rubbing down the fork bridge and other aluminium parts with a cloth and neutral preservative oil.
Triple clamps are usually made of aluminum. We at XTRIG use a high-strength, ultrasonically tested alloy that is specially manufactured for us.
