Strengths:    Strong, clean looks, minimal graphics, and light flex.

Weaknesses:    Price

Bottom Line:   
I purchased these bars to experiment with carbon bars and see if it would reduce the fatigue in my hands/wrists and long rough rides. I looked at Easton and Niner, but wanted something different and not covered with flashy graphics. I found these at my LBS and they had a sale so I decided to buy them. After riding 100miles on these bars I love them. They are wide 740mm and have a little flex which is nice. These bars are wide and I have fist bumped a few cacti on the trail, but they I like the leverage I get from them so I haven't cut them yet.

Strengths:    Wide, strong, comfortable for my wrists, subdued graphics

Weaknesses:    MSRP is a bit steep, found mine on sale at Tree Fort Bikes

Bottom Line:   
The rise and sweep fit my needs perfectly. I chose the matte finish. I like the 740mm width. Actual weight is 186 grams uncut. Nice to have a bike part that doesn't scream with decals and marketing logos.
