Strengths:    Awesome looks, nothing else on the market comes close. Great feel for the road - not too rigid, not too soft, while being extremely sturdy. Decent weight (250ish grams) for a riser, not stupidly light, but I wouldn't trust a sub-200gm riser anyway.

Weaknesses:    Price? But it's good value, so I guess it's worth it; besides, I got it cheap. Unfortunately it's out of production, or at least no longer imported to my part of the world.

Bottom Line:   
I don't know if it's still available where you are, but if it is, you want this handlebar. A true head-turner, with colour and finishing far superior to any other bar you'll find out there (they're all black these days - bleah), and happily with performance to match, in the true Easton tradition.

Goes perfectly with my all-titanium bike - I couldn't find a comparable titanium riser bar, certainly not in the price range. Works and looks so good I got a 2nd set off eBay, just in case!

Strengths:    light, looks nice

Weaknesses:    cuz its so lightweight the bar is broken now. and i don´t ride my bike hard... too expensive

Bottom Line:   
this bar is for xc riding only. if you want to ride more extreme don´t buy it. i don´t trust in lightweigt things any more... a handlebar must be stronger.
weight is not really important.

Strengths:    Stiff & strong. Great feel and Vibration dampening. The bend is very comfortable.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
The Scandium bars are strong and stiff yet they absorb vibration very well. The bars feel right in all conditions and are very comfortable on long rides. I recommend these bars for strong,large 200+ pound riders. Therew are lighter bars but at 250gr I can't find a stronger bar.
