Strength:

A+ performance. I bought it because they didnt have an azonic stem to fit the bars i wanted and they were next strongest lookin bars there. I've smacked em up a fair bit and no dents or bends yet just a few good scratches

Weakness:

u have to have the custom fsa stem maybe someone else makes a stem but not to my knowledge

If u want a tough bar get em way thicker than any normal bar.

Great bar with nice look and rigid feel. width is perfect for aggressive XC/AM use. no need to go oversize, this is it.

Strength:

very stif bar, it is strong and super burly

Weakness:

the paint gets dinged and scrached easily

i have the FR-330 bar, and it is pretty much the same thing, either way it is a good bar and i would highly recomened it. i have seen Cedric using all the FSA bars, so if it is good enough for him it is pretty much good enough for everyone else.

Strength:

Look nice?

Weakness:

The bars flare out as you get further away from the ends, meaning I can't run my shifters (sram x7) far enough in. The shifter is getting bumped when going through rocky stuff and I'm changing to gears I don't want!

These bars bug me, the shifter was constantly in the way of my regular grip on the bars, as rocky sections would bump my hand onto the shifter, messing up the gear I was in. The Protapers have a much more uniform diameter before they curve down to the stem, meaning I can get the shifter and brake lever a bit more inboard as that's what I was after. There was less than half an inch space between the end of the grip and the shifter clamp, so the triggers were hanging right in the way. You get the point. Otherwise they same like normal bars, no odd rise or sweep to mention, just the flaring out issue.
