Chromag has a strong history of manufacturing handlebars. The OSX is one of their best selling products and what put them on the map as a bike components company. The OSX has a reputation for its perfect combination of bend and up-sweep. This geometry combined with an array of colour choices has made the OSX a popular choice for pretty much any discipline of mountain biking.
By refining the shape, and utilizing variable butting, high grade alloys and advanced heat treatment techniques, they have increased the fatigue life by over 50%. So much so, that they've seen fatigue test results reach over 1 million cycles.

7050 Series Aluminum:
Chromag uses aerospace grade aluminum to achieve their required properties of strength and toughness, with added resistance to stress and corrosion.
Advanced Heat Treatment:
Heat treatment gets thrown around a lot, but most of the time the word consistency doesn’t come along with it. Depending on the batch an individual bar might be subjected to vastly different temperatures during the process. HTX ditches the disparity and provides uniform, quality heat treatment on every single bar.
By increasing the tapered sections and using a larger radius they have inherently built more strength into the shape of the OSX.
Varying the wall thickness of the bar allows Chromag to add strength where it’s needed, and keep the weight down in less strategic areas. The OSX has 7 different butting locations.
