I suppose KH could add a plastic Deathgrip style handle. Plastic molds are expensive so it wouldn’t work unless a suitable number can be made and sold. There is also the issue that the Deathgrip style handle is not ambidextrous so it is necessary to make a RH and LH version. The standard KH Fusion handle is comfortable and functional enough for most people and is ambidextrous.
KH or Velo are the only people with the resources to make a plastic Deathgrip style handle. No one else would be able to recover the mold and manufacture and distribution costs while still keeping the price reasonable.
Yeah thats true. I already had mine…
If you are breaking seats and parts then it is still worth it.
Getting one strong but expensive seat is better than getting multiple plastic ones. When I had a plastic seat I was able to pull on the handle and fold it in half.
I used to break [COLOR=“darkorange”]seatposts and seat bases like they were going out of fashion.
I HIGHLY [COLOR=“darkorange”]reccommend getting a [COLOR=“darkorange”]similar set up to mine, it is strong and quite cheap.
I have a UDC (Roger[/COLOR]) CF base, KH handle [/COLOR]and a CrMo seatpost. This is a strong set up and I haven’t broken the base, only snapped a few posts and I think one handle. Definatly worth it. [/COLOR]
Yeah, mine folds about half of that, but pretty much all the power is taken out of hops. I just do SIF for almost all of my riding, exept when I’m doing skinnies. I think most of the reason it’s so weak now is that it fell about 5 feet and landed on the saddle. A miracle nothing broke,but thats another story…
