Strengths: WIDE, but not too wide to fit through the trees on my Arkansas trails.. Strong, and lighter than most... looks sick.
Sweet bar for a good price... Looks sick.... Good and wide, but not too wide... Not a lot of bars have a 40mm rise option and this is the rise I like.... Lighter than most and helps you lean them rails son!

Strengths: Rise, strength, weight
Weaknesses: Can't say at this point.
I ride street, dirt, trail, and park with my PX Zebdi. I don't care for typical trials bar/stem setups, and these bars are a nice alternative for achieving the rise and angle suitable for my riding preferences. I bought my Zebdi used and these bars came with it. I noticed an "obvious bend" in the right bar where the brake lever attaches too (see other reviews). I assumed the previous owner dumped the bike hard, but after seeing another review mentioning the same thing, I have to wonder.

Strengths: Great design. The rise/sweep/angles are perfect for aggressive riding. These bars are also 2" wider than the last and this helps with high speed stability. Light but strong -no flex in this bar at all thanx to the 7000 series Al
Weaknesses: None @ this time.
This handlebar is another great upgrade in a long list of heavy duty upgrades that occur as the light duty components have crapped out on me. By upgrading from light-duty CC parts to DH parts a funny thing is starting to happen ...my bike parts aren't failing nearly as quickly. DH components apparently suit my riding style ...up hill slow, downhill FAST!!!
Strengths: 31.8 clamping area,light (for a downhill bar)nice looking, not to expensive,strong(I hope),nice smooth brake/shifter clamping area.
Weaknesses: pre-bent from factory where the bar should be straight(one side only)
the main reason I am writing this review is to find out if anyone else has had quality issues with T.V. these bars came brand new from the factory with an obvious (E-XTRA) BEND on the right side where the brake lever clamps! this was NOT shipping damage.I have returned the bar and I hope the replacement will be good to go. It isn't very confidence inspiring when the new "supposedly" indestructible h/c top-of-the-line cream of the crop EXPENSIVE mass produced made in IndoTaiChiKoMalaTimbuctou handlebar comes with a complimentary (unsightly) superfluous ?assymetrical? 3degree bend on the right side. Anyway I will write again when the replacement comes .ROCK and ROLL.

Strengths: Very strong DH handlebar. 31.8mm mounting area.
Weaknesses: None yet.
This handlebar just plain works well. I have it mounted up to the new Truvativ Holzfeller DH stem and the combination is very stiff and reactive. These were used during the last half of the 2003 Mountain States Cup season and withstood the abuse very well.
