Strength:

Price, Looks great IMO, strong and comfy

Weakness:

None

I've had these on my Rumblefish for 2 years now and I have definitely not been easy on them. I ride all mountain and some DH when I can and these bars have stood up to everything from 5' drop offs to multiple crashes and they are still in great shape. Normally I would not put Forte parts on my bike but the price of these in store was worth a shot. I used these on the hard tail I had before my Rumblefish as well. Great product, buy with confidence.

Strength:

Easy to trim with rotary tool. Light weight. Isn't logo'd up.

Weakness:

Personal preference: would be better with a clear/gel coat. It's a flat/satin finish

Great local price. Rivals others on the net in both price and weight. I both love and hate the simplicity but it functions.

Strength:

Came in at 162g. Nice to see a carbon part come in under the stated weight for a change. So far I'm liking these better than the easton monkeylite sl on my other bike, due to the extra width.

Weakness:

If the rise was 5mm lower these would be absolutely perfect.

These might be the best kept secret at performance.

Strength:

Light, wide, good looking

Weakness:

None so far

Paired with Oury Lock on grips this is a perfect setup. I found the wider carbon bar to give me a more comfy riding position and the lighter front end is noticeable and light. A quality product from forte.

Strength:

Strong, light and cheap - yes, you can have it all.

Weakness:

None so far.

A high-quality, light carbon bar for an excellent price - about half that of the "other" brand. Nice and wide, with a very comfortable sweep and rise. Highly recommended.

Strength:

Damn..the price to start with, it's also light, approp rise/reach with a great feel.

Weakness:

Anearlthy component with carbon..aren't we all??

Previous poster had it....no "forte" all over it!! Half the price of EC 70-90 components, saves those grams w/o breaking the bank and gives you the added shock dampening of carbon fiber products. Performance has it's gems on occassion. this is one of them.

Strength:

Light, good width, Does NOT have "Forte" pasted all over it

Weakness:

Absolutely none

There's no reason to avoid this handlebar. It's light, stiff, sexy and ridiculously cheaper than other brands when it's on sale now and then. Finally, they released a product that does not have the lame Forte name all over it. I am happy to own and fully recommend this product.

Strength:

Light, inexpensive, good up and back-sweep.

Weakness:

Doesn't say Easton, FSA, or Race Face on it.

Works great and at its price is an excellent value. I really like the bend and up-sweep, it just fits naturally to your hands. I like it so much, I run it on both of my bikes and have one on my wife's bike.
