These are limited production and once they are gone that’s it. We will be designing a new graphic every few months and will “entertain” custom ideas through rider feedback.
Answer’s custom graphics are an interruption in the anodizing process. The bars are manufactured and processed the same way however, after we’ve created the anodic coating we pull the part offline (If you were to look at the coating under magnification, you would find millions of pores which allow for dye saturation). At this point we print a graphic out onto a special media and apply it to the part and fuse the graphic into the pores of the anodic coating. We then go back online and seal the pores of the coating the same way it would be sealed had we dyed the part with a solid color. This process meets all military, automotive and industrial specifications.
One great advantage with the process over hydro-graphics/film dips is that the graphic is in the metal, not sitting on top of the substrate, therefore, it won’t peel or flake off like that of film dips. The other great advantage is that we can hold tight tolerances being that the graphic is in the metal
The ProTAPER® 780 DH is everything a downhill bar needs to be – strong, wide, and low. It features ProTAPER® technology to put added strength in the clamp and rise sections without adding excess weight at the ends of the bar.
