    Strengths:    -Decent sweep and rise
    -Nice width
    -Looks nice,but...

    Weaknesses:    -Too light(as in fragile...bent on a flight of stairs)
    -Some flex..

    Bottom Line:   
    Decent bars,I guess...but they bend.They're more suited to XC than the insane beatings I was subjecting them to.If you ride mildly technical XC,these are for you.For aggressive applications GET SOMETHIN' STRONGER!!

    Strengths:    Lighter weight, 27" wide, 7075-T6 riser bar, comfortable geometry.

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    The bars are GREAT! The 12° backsweep with the 5° upsweep allows for the perfect positioning with a 27" wide bar. They are very stiff, and are a good looking. Aside from the drivetrain and brakes, its an all California company bike. These bars are perfect for the "Freeride" type who has a longish travel bike that can be ridden uphill. They aren't as burley (heavy) as the Koski DH bars I have, but have the same geometry. If you are in need of a bar upgrade I would consider seriously these Koski XC Pro Gold Edition bars.
