    Strength:

    Lightweight, strong, and inexpensive.

    Weakness:

    It has to put up with my abuse.

    I'm used to a riser bar and thought I'd try a flat. I'm still getting used to it, but noticed a difference when hauling flat out. I'm 210 pounds and this light bar scared me at first, but it's stronger than it looks. I'm still working up the nerve to do a decent drop on it. Definently recommend it. Can you think of a reason not to get one for just $19?

    Lightweight without being stupid light

    None

    Great bar for the money. I haven't encountered any problems after a year of abuse. Nashbar has them for $19.95 now, so I may get another for my other bike.

    I have the Kore Lite Riser, 1" Cross country version. It is light and works great. Enough said.

    Strength:

    Strong.. very light

    Weakness:

    after 3 years good service it began to creek.

    This is a great handlebar.. After having me yank it around for 3 years I'm not suprised it gave up..

    Good for XC riders. Kore stuff is light and strong.

    Strength:

    Strong
    Light
    Looks

    Weakness:

    Alu vibration

    This is a good bar (I have the Lite Bar 2 at 160g, only cost £8 on offer mailorder. It is light and strong - surviving some rough XC races and the South Downs Way challenge (100 off-road miles) last year no problems.
    The only downside is that on rough descents the vibration through the bar can be quite severe - as with most bars (although maybe spring-based forks might make for less vibration coming through the controls). If you want a good XC trail bar and aren't convinced by the riser thing go for these.
    But is you ride rough and have oodles of cash get a Carbon Easton bar as they are meant to absorb a lot of the shock you can get.

    Hey, Nothin

    Hey, What bad can you say about a handle bar. Its a piece of metal you hold onto and it works fine for that.

    Strength:

    Light, nice and strong (i think)

    Weakness:

    Apparent oversight by Kore, how do I get those bar end plugs out???

    Very much lighter than my present (Zoom) handlebar.

    Nice finish, but i think they are abit soft because i acidentally hit the end with an Allen key and they is a dent already.

    Otherwise, a great product.

    Strength:

    light weight

    Weakness:

    none really for what they are

    These are nice handlebars. They are light and relatively strong. I snapped them in half but im still giving them a 4 because it was a ten foot drop.
