Strength:

Light
Perfect shape, size and bend
lightweight
Perfect matte finish
ez install (bolt trq. is printed on side of bar end)

Weakness:

color scheme and size of graphics (large gold/red splash)

I got these on sale for 35 bucks, but I'd consider these things "great" even at a much higher pricepoint. These feel amazing in your hands. Perfect for torquing up hills in a hurry. The shape/angle is ideal, and allows for multiple positions, which was very surprising for such a stubby lil bar end.
I have not crashed them or allowed the bike to fall over, so I can't comment on "crash-worthiness".

Strength:

Shiny crabon.

Weakness:

Exactly--weak. If you ever wreck you will break these.

Very fragile. Too expensive. Not useful on a mountain bike. Maybe okay for the MUT but might hook a bike salmon and break off there too. Shame on you Specialized.

Light weight

Weakness:

Very expensive

Likely a great bar end for smaller hands, but if you wear and XL glove like me I couldn't find a comfortable grip.

Strength:

looks good, great shape, comfortable

Weakness:

slippery when wet, VERY fragile - bike fell over when cleaning it and one snapped at joint of bar and clamp, quite heavy. Very expensive.

Look good, feel good, snap. Triumph of form over function.

Similar Products Used:

Ritchey WCS SL (great & very light - 70 odd grams), 2 sets of Specialized P1 overendz (also very fragile - snapped 1st pair after dropped bike, replacement snapped after super slow crash on climb - any sort of sideways force will do it)

Strength:

Looks awesome

Weakness:

With sweaty hands they are slippery

Very good looking, lightweight and ergonmically formed bar end. They give a good grip. However when your hands get sweaty the grip is less because of the nice smooth surface.
