We have had the opportunity to meet Ian Ritz, president of Chromag Bikes. He has shown us all the canadian products that they develop and create in Whistler, BC.
For 2016, they have launched the new Fubar OSX 35 handlebar, similar to the normal Fubar OSX but with a 35mm clamp. It is wider, +20mm – 800mm in total, stronger and it is made from custom drawn 7000 series alloy. To go along with the release of this new handlebar, they have also launched the new HIFI 35 stem, with a 35mm bar clamp. The rest of the product line has suffered some small changes in its design bringing a new image for the upcoming year.
