Strengths:    Weight, looks, and end cap protectors.

Weaknesses:    I can't say first hand, but seems there is a greneral consensus about strength/longevity... I'll have to write another review after a few months of riding.

Bottom Line:   
I like this bar. I've gotten mad compliments on it. I have not experienced any failures. Its comfortable, light weight, looks great, and its made out of carbon fiber; what else can one say!!!

My riding style though is not as extreme as most riders on here I would assume, so I think this bar will last me a while...

I'll give it 5 flamin' chilis for now, since I get made props on it...

Strengths:    Lightweight, big deal right, its a freakin carbon bar

Weaknesses:    Crap busted

Bottom Line:   
Alright I was drunk one night bar hopping on my mountain bike. At least I'm being honest here. Anyway I ate it and snapped the bar off just above the aluminum endcap. It wasn't on pavement either, I was 30 yards form the nearest pavement when it happened. Point is I got this bar because it had slightly more rise than my monkey lite, which I have thrashed on the trail for over two years with no problems. Yes I no that drunken crashes are not built into the design of the bar, but it can't have been that bad because nothing hurt on me the next day.
Bottom line: I think the Easton bar is higher quality or just a better design.

Date Reviewed: April 19, 2007

Strengths:    Very lightweight and beautiful handlebar

Weaknesses:    The length of the handle bar is too long and makes for sluggish handling. I took a slight fall and the joint where the end caps were snapped entirely off, expected of carbon, the weave started to come off, had to throw the thing away

Bottom Line:   
Go for titanium if you fall alot. Its a good bar and I enjoyed it while it lasted but the strength was a dissapointment.
