Since the introduction of the ever popular plug style nylon bar ends, we haven’t seen a lot of changes other than colors and some of the designs on the ends of the plug. Merritt offer a bar end with a washer on the inside, which helps prevent the plug from jamming into the bars and breaking off, but they’re still no protected on the outside, which is usually the source cause of them breaking. BSD‘s M-Caps, which are hitting BMX shops and mail-orders around the world, are a dual material plug style bar end that features an aluminum ring that wraps around the outside of the nylon plug, and gives a barrier between the bars and any impacts that might hit the plug, helping to reduce the chance of it breaking. The M-Caps are available in colors of black, chocolate, Surplus green, dark red, grey and Dust blue with a black aluminum ring.
