Strengths:    This product did exactly what I wanted it to do. It made the numbness in my hands go away. The Carbon Fiber material has excellent vibration damping.

Weaknesses:    Non witnessed so far

Bottom Line:   
I've taken this bikeout on some moderately technical trails with no problems. I've taken numerous, newbie spills with out cracking or even scratching of the finish. I'm a big guy at 230lbs and have experienced no perceptible flex in the bar during descents and hard climbs. Net-net, this is a good bar for improving the quality of your ride and maybe your skill level if you've been having problems with your arms or hands numbing out. A more extreme rider might not find it resposive enough, though the bar isn't designed for DH or FR, go for an OS carbon bar if you are looking to make the swithch to carbon fiber.

Rove XC and Next XC

Maybe I just missed a sizing note but I ordered a new rove xc stem and went to mate it up with my next xc bars and the stem is way to big. Has any one else ran into this problem ? Should i sent the stem back or get new bars ?Read More »

XC is lighter and stiffer, is the LTc next?

So it seems as if Santa Cruz did a great job with the XC. They have made it lighter (4 lb frame) and stiffer. That is awesome. I am not an XC guy though. I currently have an LTc and love it. It is very stiff and tears up the trails. Anyone think or know of Santa Cruz doing the same with the LTc ... Read More »
