The XLC "Bullhorn" bar is made using a Double butted method. Double butted is a processing method during which the aluminium tube is conified, in order to obtain a lower weight for the same rigidity level. This procedure renders the tube endings, where the strongest interaction is at work, stronger and consequently more stable. In the middle of the tube, where the interaction is weaker, this system saves weight.
