Gen 1: The Gen 1 was our very first iteration of the Flexx Bar. Manufactured from January 2002 through December 2009. This bar has been discontinued, we carried parts until 2019 but no longer carry parts for the gen 1 bar aside from elastomers.

Gen 4: The Gen 4 bar is our current bar, we made the switch to the Gen 4 in August 2022. The notable difference from gen 3 to gen 4 is the length of the crossbars. For Gen 4 we went to one standard crossbar length. Our atv, enduro, moto, and adventure bars will use SHORT CROSSBARS ONLY.
