Date Reviewed: May 28, 2009

Strengths:    stiff and solid, no flex; easily mounts controls

Weaknesses:    scratches a bit easily...

Bottom Line:   
Unbelieveably strong! 2 years of 100+ miles/week in all conditions, taking my big a$$ torquing on them, and the only give is in the grips! Look good too -- a few scratches that came a bit easy, I thought, but one that was funny -- a toddler bike fell on it from 15' in the air, and left a tiny red scrape....

Strengths:    solid bar, great price, tough finish, perfect all-round sweep/rise

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
This bar was the first thing I put on my last bike and likeed the feel so much I insisted on taking it with to the next bike. I ride everything on one bike and these bars are great for all riding. They are worth every penny. You may find lighter but not as tough and precise.

Strengths:    Fairly light, nice rise for myself, good price.

Weaknesses:    Not as many options on the riser height, but it suits me.

Bottom Line:   
I got a good deal on ebay, but this is still good value at full price. Looks really good with the Race Face stem I got too.

It fits all lights, computer and levers on no worries with room for a bell if it takes your fancy ; )

Only downer was when my girlfriend got her new Easton bits, which were really nice, but at a nice price too.

Strengths:    Very well priced, quality construction, pretty good weight, nice and strong.

Weaknesses:    Slightly narrower than other bars of this type (Diablous).

Bottom Line:   
Great bar for a great price! I go through parts like crazy, and the Evolve DH bar is awsome value, and seems to be very strong and flex free. I was a bit leary about buying into the oversize standard, but am glad I did. This bar is awsome. I love it.
