Strengths:    Nice going downhills

Weaknesses:    not ideal for cross country riding

Bottom Line:   
This bar is great but not the greatest for cross country riding. It is a little too wide although it could be cut.
I changed the bar for a straight one and shorter and I ride better in single tracks now.
I would recommend this bar to anyone who does all terrain type of riding with some downhills.
You get more controll/balance with this bar but not the stiffness, quickness (fast turns in changing direction) of a straight one.

This bar came stock on my Epic 04
