Strengths:    Lightweight, you get the best of both worlds - the performance of a carbon bar with the no crush strenght of an aluminum bar - and after paying the wholesale cost for this I'd say it was a steal. Also, there is a coating (sorta like grip tape) on the section of the bar that is meant to be clamped so it ensures no slippage.

Weaknesses:    1. The markings for stem placement are not even.
2. Still doesn't top a monkey lite carbon
3. Is NOT a true carbon bar ( this one is 6066 Al wrapped with carbon), but i guess this wouldnt be a bad thing.



Bottom Line:   
ok simple, Less weight = More Money
Not in this case, any good set of bars will run you close to a hundred bucks, but the lighter you get, you often get a weaker bar unless you pay a whole lot for it.

Id recomend this bar to any rider that has cross country exp.
bottom line ----- this is a nice bar that don't break the bank
