Strengths:    Quality construction and understated finish clear coated carbon.

Weaknesses:    Price is on the high side

Bottom Line:   
I have both standard and OS size bars. The claimed weight is correct at 140 grams. 10/10 construction/finish. A stiff handle bar. Plus made in England. A perfect match to the USE carbon seat pin. Others may be 40grams lighter. But 40 grams is nothing if they snap. That little extra gives you the confidence that it with last a life time and wont let you down in a painful way.

Strengths:    lite, stiff, good looking

Weaknesses:    a little heavy for carbon

Bottom Line:   
I have bent Al bars. I had the Al inserts on the Profile bar come off. The USE bar isn't super lite, but with thick reinforced ends for bar ends and a nice finish it proves to be a worthy bar. I would say it is worth what I paid, but might look at a lighter bar next time. I,ve wrecked with it several times, and it hasn't slipped due to the textured surface on the clamp area. This is my second carbon bar, and after the abuse I put my first thru, I expect this one to withstand a couple thousand miles of abuse before dying. It is stiffer than my stem (FSA XC 120) and therefore making me impressed with the bar but not stem. Yah I would recomend it.
