The DC-8 perch includes the legendary ARC folding/adjustable lever. The lever uses an "external pivot" that has replaceable bushings in the perch. This means NO up and down play in the lever. There is a nylon sleeve on the handlebar that helps the perch rotate in a crash preventing damage. The quick adjust is 1/3 turn and very easy to access. The perch part is made from die cast aluminum and CNC machined for accuracy. This perch has the same geometry, function and durability as our RC-8 perch without the cost It is available with an aluminum or composite lever.
