Date Reviewed: January 16, 2003

Strengths:    A variety of positions to grab on.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I've used this bar on three of my bikes and I love it. You have a comfort position, a climbing position, a aero position. I use Tektro brake lever extenders to brake while holding the bar end area. I also customized it so that you can brake while in the aero position on a downhill ride. I have three of these bar and will never sell them. The best ever.

Date Reviewed: November 10, 2002

Strengths:    Perfect design : compact, multi hand position - including areo which can be used for relax you back on long rides - and definitely a wind occurs when X-C'ing.
The safety for bike control in bush and hand protection are incomparable - can thrust cow's horns without beeing one.


Weaknesses:    Impossible to find a new one , or the spare parts - only one is necessary - but paramount - the BAR END CONNECTOR - this is a plastic part which eventually (is my case) will be cooked out afer some years of exposition riding conditions and sun.

Bottom Line:   
Who knows where I can find a new one or replacement part (prefferebly)

Date Reviewed: March 8, 2001

Strengths:    Very light, integrated bar ends, extremely durable

Weaknesses:    Can't find them anymore. Could be a little wider. Curved bar ends make it more difficult to get shifters/brake levers on.

Bottom Line:   
These bars are great. They have held up to 5 years of use, abuse, crashes, and the like. By now they look pretty nasty, but I won't trade them for anything. I've cut the bar ends down so they aren't so long, and it makes them even lighter and a little less dorky. Even cut down, they have all the positions I could want and make for a comfortable ride. The only complaints would be that getting control stuff on and off is a little more difficult and that they could be a little wider for broad shoulder people.

Date Reviewed: January 7, 2001

Strengths:    Very light design. Has proven to be a strong bar in my many crashes. I actually have the AT-2 which is a little lighter at 250g.

Weaknesses:    I ever were to break these, I wouldn't be able to replace them since Scott doesn't make them anymore.

Bottom Line:   
Nice design. Very light setup if you want barends since the bar and ends are all one piece.

Wish someone would make a similar product since Scott won't anymore.

Date Reviewed: December 23, 2000

Strengths:    strong, light (290g.), good angles, these have saved my hands several times from branches and wrecks.

Weaknesses:    Scott does not make them any more and I haven't seen anything else like them.

Bottom Line:   
I have had these bars 6 years and keep moving them from bike to bike. They are light, durable, and you don't have to add on heavy bar ends as they are already there!!!

Bottom Line:   
I rode with these bars for about a year. They where great, although i wish for a little more angle on the upper grips. They even stood up to a hit by a car. The bike got toss 20' into the lane of traffic and the bars didn't bend, did scratch a little though. I upgraded to a cheap pair of steel one piece bars, lee chi's. They are cheap but the have the angles i want.

Date Reviewed: October 26, 1999

Strengths:    
Multiple hand positions
Lighter than bar ends
No bar end bolts to gouge your knees
Saves your knuckles from getting smacked with branches


Weaknesses:    
Scott doesn't make them any more
Stem sleeve rotates on bar, not bonded together


Bottom Line:   
I've been using these for about 8 years, love them. I guess I'm the only one as there wasn't a page for them and Scott doesn't make them any more. They are still for sale in catalog clearance sections and on sale tables at your LBS.
