    Strengths:    Cheap, strong, great finish

    Weaknesses:    Only came in silver (that might be MY weakness though)

    Bottom Line:   
    My first riser and I can't complain one bit. Perfect rise, sweep, and width as clamped to my Kore Elite stem. Durable bead blasted finish and graphics are surprising at the low price. I guess it's kind of heavy, though I have never noticed or cared, especially for $20, and it is riser bar after all. I ride mostly XC and it's more than ride and crash worthy for that purpose, but if it ever somehow did break I would immediately buy another one.
    Hellbent for Titec!

    Bottom Line:   
    Excellent bars. I noticed an immediate difference in the stiffness. There is absolutely no flex at all. I am using them with Race Face Evolve stem (see my review). Very happy with these bars. I would buy them at retail price after knowing how nice they are.

    Bottom Line:   
    Great bars. Not enough rise for me. I prefer the Easton Monkey Bars personally. However, I have never seen a bar take such abuse as these Titec Hell Bents! I ride urban freeride all the time and huck stairs, gaps, treerides, and the occassional car bonk. Nothing wrong with the bars! They are tuff as nails! If your looking for something that takes a beating from a former 20" dirtjumper then these are the bars for you. Buy them now, save money because you won't be replacing them for a long.long.long time.

    Strengths:    Greet feeling bar. Perfect rise and sweep for all-around aggressive freeride, urban and even XC. Done repetitive big drops and still holds great after 2 yrs! Light and strong!

    Weaknesses:    None what so ever!

    Bottom Line:   
    Get it if you want an all-around quality bar. Everything is great about it from the design to the paint finish. Might not be the best bar for full-on DH, but it's excellent for everything else. In my book, the best bar out there for the price!

    Strengths:    Feels great, improves bike handling, better rider position, pretty light.

    Weaknesses:    Blue paint that easily scratches off--at least it will be silver soon!

    Bottom Line:   
    Great improvement to my bike. I was hesitant to go to a riserbar--I thought I liked having my hands so far below my butt! This bar puts me in a good position to ride, gives better control of the bike, and improved confidence on the downhills. I haven't missed my bar ends as much as I thought I would, either. We'll see if it holds up, as I'm a pretty heavy rider, but I'm glad I made the change.

    Strengths:    STRONG & LIGHT. Some people say these are heavy, but I can't really tell a difference in other bars. I compared to Azonic, Easton, and Azonic and chose these

    Weaknesses:    They creak, but I think it might be my stem. I have a Race Face Dues coming so I'll find out soon

    Bottom Line:   
    A great strong bar for the money. I know a couple downhillers that have these on their rigs and have given them a beating. I've bailed a caouple times with em, and they didn't even get scratched. The graphics are very cool too!!

    Strengths:    Tough, Tough, Tough. Cool looking logos and nice blue color.
    I like the positioning lines on the bar, really help to during installation. No creaking whatsoever.


    Weaknesses:    Could be heavy to some but I think its light as hell. And when it is this tough, who cares about 1 or 2 extra grams.

    Bottom Line:   
    Can't say enought about this piece of work. Crashed a couple of times hard and twisted the hell out of them. No nothin. These don't even scratch easy. Plus the logos look sweet. My stock handlebars creaked, moaned and groaned. These are extremely stiff and responsive. Haven't hear a peep out of them yet. Light and strong. It doesn't get any better and the price is unbeatable. Need any more reasons. The mild sweep is good for freeriding or cross country. If you want downhill action go get the DH Trucker bar. No complaints and 5 chilli rellenos.
