Affinity knows that paying $80 + for a decent bar isn't possible for everyone. So Affinity went out there and created the "basic" bar. Instead of using 4130 Chromoly Steel they decided to use a more cost effective material called DOM which is still just has strong as Chromoly and it is approved by the NHRA. Also these bars are locally powder coated as well. If you're looking for a cheap pair of strong bars, these are definitely for you. Keep in mind that these bars are NOT sold with a slit.
Standard bars without a slit are compatible with SCS only as is. For IHC, ICS, Mini HIC, and threaded compression systems, a slit must be installed.
Oversized bars without a slit are compatible with full size SCS only as is. For HIC a slit must be installed.
The XL Classic bars are made from 4130 Chromoly and are everything you love about the Classic T bars. These bars come in at a stagering 24” wide x 28” tall in both STANDARD and OVERSIZED. These bars DO NOT come with a slit. Keep in mind that when you purchase Affinity bars you will be supporting the livelihoods of riders who share our passion for design and American craftsmanship within the scooter scene.
