Strength:

Perfect length and rise. Feels very stiff. Oh, and it looks good too!

So far these bars feel great, much better than the stock crowbars. Carbon seems like it gives just the slightest flex while still leaving me with confidence. Super light and the look great! Don't think I would pay full price though, so only 4 chilis for value. Great value for what I paid though.

Strength:

Great look, great vibration damping, perfect width. Feels solid.

Weakness:

None so far.

Would recommend it to everyone who is doing more then just roadracing on an MTB trail with their head down. A Riser bar will give you more control, and will make it easier to go faster on technical sections. No more flatbars for me.

Strength:

light and very comfortable and stiff. looks spot on with the matching carbon stem.

Weakness:

i took pause when i seen how much these components are individually. i am thankful for getting half off a ultimate s-works epic through ebay.

the bar is just one part of this bike that i am in awe of every time i ride it. perfect feel and stiffness complements the cockpit of this steed. had to give this bar a review since its so worthy. really dont think i would pay retail for the combo though.

Strength:

Stiff yet responsive, nice moderate rise, compatible (unlike Easton's equivalent bar) with bar ends

Weakness:

Not much. Bontrager's gaudy colour red? It's pricier than most carbon bars.

A very very good bar. It is stiff but it really does dampen the vibrations of the road and trail. The rise is nice but not too excessive. The bar is about 25 inches (approx. 630 mm). I'm impressed.

Strength:

Amazing look and ergonomics. Fits like a glove. I am wide sholder and still fix nice @ 25"wide bar. The rise is just perfect on my 07 FSR stumpy. Saving up for the stem $$$. I love how it really damper the vibration on the rail and on jumps especially. I have one weak wrist and the change from alum. to carbon helped along w/ the bontrage dampers on the ends (about $10.00 sold seperate) Stearing w/ this really helps since you feel the shock/stem and bar are one sole part rather than a connection of components. I love it. I can't tell you much about looks, but that my bike looks the best out on the trail.

Weakness:

none

The best in looks for me and the best in price as well as ergonomics and how it feels.
Go out and get one and save up for the stem. (stem is very pricyyyyyyyyy)
