Strength:

Strength. Weight. Shape. Finish.

Weakness:

No Such thing

This is for the Carbon Vector Low Rise. 680mm/12deg sweep takes an hour or so to get used to, but is incredibly comfortable, and gives fantastic control without causing wrist/hand pain. Lighter than many XC bars, as strong as any DH bar; check out the testing video on the syntace site and you'll see what I mean. Forget all this rest, this is absolutely the best! Worth every cent (in fact I bought 3 for future bike acquisitions).

Strength:

- stiffness
- weight
- style

Weakness:

- price

First i was shocked by the price but after 2 hours at the trail the syntace vector was worth every penny.
the black finish looks cool and the decals are ok.
the angel and the rise are very comfortable and the diameter of the tube allows me to clip my mirge lights directly on the handlebar.
not cheap - but fun

Strength:

ultra strong and still maintains a very respectable weight for all cross country ounce counters. Good looking graphics and shot-peened for brute strength. Strong enough for a man.

Weakness:

I had a tough time finding one.

great for a girl (or a guy) that wants a great all around performer.

Marko Blau   Racer [Jan 19, 2000]
Strength:

Extreme durable
very light at 260 gramms or so
wide at about 660mm
available in gold
Cool graphics that last
nice geometry

Weakness:

definitly none.

The german BIKE magazine testet a few dozen Riser Bars in their durability and this one outlasted all of them BY FAR! It lasted even longer then top bars like easton monkey or the much havier answer alumlite bar.
So why waste your money on other bars if you can get the best for less money?
Get it!

5 burning rats!

Mike a Freerider, Jumper, and Downhiller U   [Feb 20, 2005]
Strength:

good geometry, it has the most back sweep of any bar ive tried, and i love it. strength, this bar has been tested by a german mag, and it really is the strongest. weight, you hardly notice the bar. stiffness, the bar responds amazingly well, even on the roughest downhill.

Weakness:

it makes your friends drool on it.

I will buy this bar again. It matches the front end, see above, perfectly. Five burnt tacos for this one.

Similar Products Used: none at this level.

Strength:

Strong, light, durable

Weakness:

none

I was a little apprehensive of carbon handlebars and components but I've been proven wrong by the Syntace. It is a great quality item and I have full confidence in it when riding. I've used this bar for well over 6 months now and it hasn't let me down yet. I've crashed many times, including some bad over the handlebar jobs but the bar is holding together nicely.
