Strengths:    These bars are truly massive with the 31.8mm clamp diameter, and the tubing near the ends is over 7mm thick! nice and wide with a good rise (1.5") and good backsweep. nice and narrow at the grips.

Weaknesses:    only weight weenies will notice their weight.

Bottom Line:   
The stiffness and steering precision of these bars is amazing. I highly recomend these bars for anyone doing any hard free riding.

Titec El Norte handlebars
