Strengths:    They're strong, round and wide.

Weaknesses:    Nil

Bottom Line:   
Bars are bars, never been into weight savings as a hobby so I don't even know if these things are light.

What I do know is they feel great !!! Lots of front wheel control and gave me a better riding position.

Love em :)

Well built although not quite as light as a number of other bars now available.

Bottom Line:   
This bar has proved to be extremely durable. I've owned it for 7 or 8 years and it has seen plenty of hard action in both Oklahoma and Michigan (in the winter).

Nukeproof bar = BOMBPROOF BAR

A wee bit hefty

Bottom Line:   
This bar is truly bombproof. The only problems I had with mine was installing it into the Cattlehead, but some bike shop magic and a screw driver and a dead blow and wha lah instant bike cockpit from heaven. As far as durability is concearned I have clipped and slammed into trees with this bad dad and it is as straight as day one. Good work Nuke ... Now why did you guys discontinue these things again?

Bottom Line:   

I'm giving these a decent review based on the opinion of a friend who races expert class and used to work for the coompany. He bent his in a wreck and is unable to replace them as far as he knows... anyone know where I can get one of these??? Thanks.

Bottom Line:   

Excellent bars! You get a CF ride with AL durability - these bars are
harder to break than most ultralight aluminum ones. I don't know where
these other fools got their information, but I've been riding mine for
two years now, and besides having a slightly larger OD than typical
bars, the ride has been incredible!

Bottom Line:   

I have run the same bar set for several years! These bars are indestructable and have been smashed, banged and downright disrespected without yielding. If the new bars are built the same, you won't be disappointed.

Bottom Line:   

These are pretty neat bars, if you are shallow (as I have been known to be). The hard truth is that they aren't as durable as one would expect. One little wreck and my $50 was gone. Poof! My time of carbon fiber glory was shortlived. Don't make the same mistake. You're probably better off with a ho-hum aluminum dime a dozen type bar.

Bottom Line:   

This is one of the coolest looking bars on the market! It looks like
a snake skin and glistens in the sun. It's extremely light due the
fact it has an aluminum core ( for strength) wraped with carbon
fiber. It is also very stiff. I've had alot of people ask me
about it so it is very trick. Get one!!!!!!!

Fat Bike Bar Width

Just got my FatBoy frame set and I am gathering what I need for the build. The geometry is very close to what my traditional XC bike is (TT). However I am trying to decide on which bar and stem I am going to use. Is it ok to run the same set up I run for XC? 90mm stem and 700mm bar? Is it recommende ... Read More »

Hi, I got a killer deal on bike shop owner's bike and now I'm trying to clean up the handlebar and make it more ergonomic for my smallish hands. On the left side (outside in) I've got XTR M987 brakes then an Xloc full sprint remote above the bar. On the right side (outside in) I've got the ... Read More »

XT MT785 - lever coming back to bar when lightly pulled, not when pulled hard

Hey guys, Any idea what's wrong and how easy it is to fix. Pretty new brakes, working fine before a crash last week. No physical damage seen to lever but had to dig a load of mud out of the nooks and crannies. Since then, when the brake is suddenly pulled on, it feels fine and works fine - compl ... Read More »
