Strengths:    Cheaper than the Easton Bars.
Light weight

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
These are great bars. I dont know what happened to the other guys but mine have been great. One thing about anything carbon fiber is that you must take care of them. DONT GET ANY HYDRO FLUID ON THEM. This causes them to get soft and fail. So if you are running hydro brakes beware of carbon fiber and the fluid. I was at first take a little scared to really yank down on anything carbon fiber but time proved to me that they will not break. Buy them, you will like them. OH YEA, dont scratch them or they may fail.

Strengths:    Stiff, stong,light weight, unique, price.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Been using this bar for just under a year. I like it. Gets the job done well and is light weight and tough, not to mention I paid a lot less for it than my previous carbon handlebars. I'd receomend this bar to anyone who is looking to buy a riser bar for racing, training, or recreational riding.
