Bottom Line:   
My best friend owns a LBS and one day we decided to do a OS carbon riser bar shootout, since he had OEM demos of all the above bars listed. Guess who emerged the winner?

There is something truly special about Giant composites. They are elegant, thin, crazy-light and have absolutely ZERO flex. I suppose it's really no big wonder that Giant is the ONLY company that weaves their own Toray T800 pre-peg carbon sheets. With QC this stringent - Giant and TIME of France have the finest quality CF in the entire developed world.....simply amazing!

These bars are incredible, and well worth the cash!!!
