Strengths:    look cool - I got the candy red anodized - head turning bars! Strong and light and have an excellent bend angle.

Weaknesses:    too much of the cool colour gets covered up by controls and grips : >

Bottom Line:   
OK, OK, I bought them coz they look soooooo cool and were going brand new for a great price on ebay.

But they ARE great bars and I didn't even bend them when I crashed heavily into a steel fence post! Just a small mark in the anodizing - and on my first day out with them! Doh!

I also fitted X-Lite matchiong bar ends to complete the pimped out look...

Strengths:    The main strenths of these bars are:
- Perfect rise and sweep for XC riding
- Quite light & very strong
- Very comfortable & comes in range of cool colours


Weaknesses:    After crashing several times I have found no weaknesses as of yet.

Bottom Line:   
Top pair of bars for the money. If your after a quality bar for X-country use buy them and you wont regret it...

Strengths:    They work

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
They work perfectly. Reasonably light, reasonably priced, I haven't bent them (yet).

The rise is lower than some bars (only 30mm) so may not appeal to all riders.

Bottom Line:   

I can't believe I'm the first person that is writing something about these great handlebars. For the first cross country specific bar X-lite have done themselves proud. Not the biggest rise, yet super super light and super super comfy. A class bar worth fitting, and well worth the £37 price tag. Being the complete dumbasrse that I can sometimes be I waited far to long before buying them. But Now that they finally sit proud clamped in my stem, I have no intention of disturbing them. X - Lite what can I say. Thank You. Finally I can ride in comfort.
