Strengths:    Ti bar - lovely n strong. Not superlight (weight weenies take note!)but who cares about a few grams? Raw ti matches my frame and the end plugs add an extra half inch to the width, nice!

Weaknesses:    Excuse me??

Bottom Line:   
Very nice bar, nicer than my moots bar, stronger than the carbon fibre easton one I used to have ... this one 'll last a life time and loadsa crashes! Don't know if X-Lite are continuing these bars as they arent listed on their website anymore! Glad I got mine in time if this is the case.

Strengths:    nice width, hold bar ends well

Weaknesses:    had to order from UK

Bottom Line:   
Great upgrade for my bike. I have fairly wide shoulder and like the width of these bars. The flat bar handles much better than the risers that came stock on by Rocky. If you like a wide flat bar, you can't do any better than this one.

Weaknesses:    None yet

Bottom Line:   
So far very pleased. Replaced the generic bars/stem and the feel on the road is superb. All the road vibration is absorbed.Looks are subtle. No-one will know its X-lite unless they really look.

Strengths:    Good width, quaility and has barend plugs, titanium!!

Weaknesses:    no weaknesses to report

Bottom Line:   
I bought this bar because it has a good width (600mm) and it is also light weight. The finish on the bar has a polished look and has alloy end plugs built into each end, this is good for clamping my titec barends. I changed from an alloy bar and found the titainium very comfortable over long rides. X-Country riders looking for a comfortable, wide and very lightweight bar should buy this bar.
