30 % less vibration through the SQlab FL-X technology


Syntace and SQlab are the only manufacturers to remain undamaged in the large Bike Magazine break test. In addition to stability, SQlab focuses on damping behaviour. Accordingly, the 311 FL-X was developed with regard to flex behaviour. In an extensive study, we were able to prove that virtually all high-quality handlebars have damping characteristics between 0 % and 15 %, depending on their intensity. 311 FL-X has 30% more flex.

Which Backsweep-Type are you? 

12° Backsweep

upright riding position, Hardtail and Racefully.  


16° Backsweep

stretched out riding position, Hardtail and Racefully.  


  • The 12° backsweep with its short reach provides a natural transition from the lower arm to the hand when in a more upright riding position 
  • The 4° Upsweep determines the elbow position for an active riding style
  • Two different heights (low, med) allowing individualized riding positions
  • The 16° backsweep provides a natural transition from the lower arm to the hand when in a more stretched riding position
  • The 4° Upsweep determines the elbow position for an active riding style
  • Two different heights (low, med) allowing individualized riding positions
Rigid handle bars - transmits the vibrations on the rider.
311 FL-X handle bars - with optimized damping properties reduces fine vibrations as well as large G-forces.

Less Vibration

At accelerations of up to 50 m/s² (which corresponds to approximately 5g, i.e. 5 times the earth's gravitational pull), the SQlab 311 FL-X reduces the loads on the handarm system by 18 % to 20 %. The other tested handlebars can only "work" little or not at all at these accelerations and thus reduce the load only insignificantly.


These accelerations/impacts, frequently occur during mountain biking, e.g. with root sections or braking bumps. The mountain bike specific problem "arm pump" is evident. The result is numbness of the fingers and premature fatigue. At higher loads the 3OX Carbon achieves the highest reduction according to the area of use.

Description at a glance
Fast, light, sporty and agile. 

Who would have thought that the SQlab ergonomics experts are also quite good in high-tech, material science and carbon manufacturing. 

Stability: Syntace and SQlab are the only manufacturers to remain in the big bike magazine break test without damage.

Weight: At 200g, the handlebar is one of the lightest and most stable on the market.

Ergonomics: With a sporty sitting position and a handlebar width from 740mm and under 9° backsweep, the wrists are always overstretched. SQlab currently has the monopoly for sporty MTB handlebars.

Damping: The 311 FL-X has been developed with regard to flex behaviour. In an elaborate study we were able to prove that almost all high-quality handlebars have damping characteristics between 0% and 15%, depending on the intensity.  The 311 FL-X is between 20% and 30%. The higher flex has no disadvantages in steering precision. The steering forces are clearly below the vertical forces.

Area of use: MTB Race 


The 12° backsweep with its short reach provides a natural transition from the lower arm to the hand when in a more upright riding position thus protecting the wrist from the extreme strain

The 15mm or 30mm Rise (handlebar height) allows an individual adjustment of the sitting position.

Clamping 31,8 mm
