Date Reviewed: February 20, 2006

Strengths:    Looks, strength, extra wide so it can be cut down to the length you like, vibration dampening

Weaknesses:    Heavyier than carbon fiber bars

Bottom Line:   
I love the vibration dampening qualities of these bars and I get peace of mind bombing down a hill that I dont get using carbon fiber bars. They also have excellent sweep. No more sore wrists or hands. Weight weenies probably wont want these bars, but if you want a tuff bar that has a reasonable weight, then this bar is an excellent choice for weekend warriors.

Strengths:    Great feel, Put them on my KHS that I use for a while in the summer when I go home, and just loved them. Just got back and took out my blur, which has the EA 70 risers. I really prefer the Azonics feel big time over the easton's.

Weaknesses:    ?

Bottom Line:   
Just love the feel.

Submitted by Dave Swift a Weekend Warrior from Manchester, UK

Date Reviewed: April 18, 2004

Strengths:    Strength, rise, width and sweep are perfect for me.
Thought I might have to chop the bar down when I bought it but went out for a spin and they didn't feel too wide at 28"


Weaknesses:    Not found any yet and the bars still look good after lost of use

Bottom Line:   
Definitely recommended, will take the knocks and the 2" rise version I use has a great shape and feel in my opinion.
Go for a ride before getting the hacksaw out and cutting them down though, you might be converted like I was.
Slightly pricy at £45 but, worth the money when you get out on the trail.
Recommended for XC/FR for riders who want a strong comfortable riser bar.

Strengths:    Huge rise!

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Solid feel. I have the 2.5" riser since I have back problems and need a more upright stance. This helps tremendously but I don't feel like I have lost the control of a flat bar in the technical stuff I usually ride. Very sloid product and having a 5 year warranty doesn't hurt.

Submitted by Ashley a Weekend Warrior from Stockton, United Kingdom

Date Reviewed: October 21, 2003

Strengths:    Nice and wide, double wall construction is a good idea...

Weaknesses:    double wall construction doesnt work well with rigid forks, they flex quite a bit, I thought this was quite good at first as it makes riding more comfortable, but after a few months they started creaking, I thought this would lead to them snapping so sent them back to get checked, and sure enougth they had been severly weakend by all the flexing and were swapped for some single walls! Anodising comes of really easy.

Bottom Line:   
Dissapointing, not suitable for use with rigid forks + extreme riding. Seems as though they work well with suspension mind. The single wall azonics are much more substantial and Ive had no problems, better for trials.

Strengths:    good amount of sweep, decent weight

Weaknesses:    to wide stock and when you cut em down they dont have much room for levers and shifters, Anodizing sucks!!!

Bottom Line:   
They work, i havent had any hasstle from them. I rode with them for a while at full width but found it to much so cut em down to about 26.5 they rock now. As i say a little bit of a pain to fit levers and stuff when cut down but i do have super long BMX grips on them. The sweep i so nice, i've tried loads of others and they are all to flat, so the next bike i buy will have a set of these on.

Submitted by Ryan E. a Cross Country Rider from Lyons, CO

Date Reviewed: May 7, 2003

Strengths:    Great bend, comfortable riding position uphill and down, strong, sexy looking (black gloss)

Weaknesses:    None that I can see, although a little wide for my taste - just takes getting used to

Bottom Line:   
My first riser bar, definately can see what I've been missing. What has impressed me most thus far is just how comfortable a 2" riser can be on long climbs. With the Switchblade set at 3" in the front I still feel like I'm crouched enough to do serious climbing, even though I'm hanging on to what seem like long bat wings. Although they feel wide now, it's mainly because I have been riding incredibly short flat bars for a decade (24" max). That being said, these bars have been awesome when the downhill comes, I feel so much more confidence that I am experimenting with drops I never contemplated before. Technical riding has improved, although not so much on the technical climbs. But again, I really think this is a user issue and I will adjust to the feel of the higher rise and wider width soon enough.

If I could do it over, I would order the same bar. It's strong, light, has a great feel to it, and drastically improves technical downhill riding (as with any riser I presume). However, this is a specific review, so for $65 I give it high marks.
