Physis™ 3D Handlepost
The new benchmark
Four patented technologies and unique manufacturing technology add up to the strongest, stiffest handlepost available. The Physis uses a special manufacturing process called 3D forging, which forms the post from a single piece of aluminum, eliminating all welds.
To eliminate flex, the Physis was designed with a massive joint knuckle and a post that gradually tapers from thick at the base to thin. The fork steerer interface is 150% more stiff than common designs.
The base of the Physis is machined so it functions as the upper race of the headset. This patented direct integration contributes to the incredible stiffness of the design.
Joint surfaces lock together to improve torsional stiffness.
Redundant Double Bolts
Two bolts clamp the Physis to the fork steerer for improved safety.
The patented design puts sliding bearings between the moving parts so the folding action is always smooth and friction-free.
Large, Smooth Lever
Large rounded surfaces are easy on your hands and provide good leverage for easy operation.
Close the lever and it automatically locks in place, for extra, easy security.
Floating Point Technology
Patented technology allows the lever to fold flat and brace against the joint for protection in transit.
Good things are built to last and that’s why the Physis is designed to be fully dealer serviceable. We keep every part in stock and replacing the bearings can be done in minutes.
Three rubber seals keep weather out and the headset bearings functioning smoothly.
A machining tolerance of only 50 microns ensures a tight fit and eliminates looseness and rattling.
Stainless Steel Bolts
Cold-worked stainless hardware delivers the durability and reliability needed for daily riding.
The Physis features a unique patented geometry with a forward facing hinge for additional safety.
