    Strength:

    Strong, I dont know how anyone could break any type of handlebar anyways.
    Creak and flex free.
    Perfect feel, nice and wide with the perfect amount of sweep and rise.

    Weakness:

    None

    These things improve the feel and performance of my bicycle. The width, rise, and sweep are the perfect combination. You have much more control with these bars, and steering is also improved over your average XC riser. Buy these if you want some classic DH bars with flawless performance.

    Strength:

    width, rise, strength, very light weight for an extremely strong downhill bar

    Weakness:

    none at all

    If you can find one anywhere, it is the best bar out there that you can buy. Strong enough to take the beatings that I dish out on my bike (which has brought nearly everything that I own to mercy [except the 'zocchi]). It's run into trees, been ditched off jumps, and the only thing wrong is a small scratch on it. Just the right width for much improved control and feel, and the right amount of sweep make it the most comfortable bar I've ever used. And at $14, it is one of the best buys I have ever made. I honestly would pay $60 for this bar. I love it.

    Strength:

    The rise is just right and so is the length. it looks cool in black and seems really strong. The writing is durable and looks wikid

    Weakness:

    The black finish is easily scratched.

    The bar is one of the best looking and is not that heavy for the price. it is strong, shot peened and has more of an acceptable sweep and rise than my old one for all day riding. Top kit! city cruisers look elsewhere but offroaders... BUY IT!

    Strength:

    I paid £45 for this bar back in 1998, and it's still with me. I love it. Nothing else I've ever tried seems to offer quite such a comfortable riding position - it's as if it was designed to fit my arms/shoulders/hands. It has shown no signs of bending and refuses to show scratches. It's also pretty light.

    Weakness:

    None whatsoever

    Bars are personal things - everyone has their own tastes - but I'd never ride with anything except my Hellbent. It feels good, looks better and doesn't creak. Furthermore, I have absolute confidence in it.

    Arggg   Cross Country Rider [Mar 29, 2002]
    Strength:

    Wide but not too wide... good bends.

    Weakness:

    Kinda heavy, but it's "DH" so eh...


    It takes about one and a half minutes to get used to the width of these bars if you're used to narrower bars, but they feel über natural once the ice is broken. I had a little trepidation about flying through narrow singletrack, but haven't had a problem yet even bush whacking through early-season tree growth.

    The bars provide good leverage for whipping the front wheel when necessary and for steep grinds. As mentioned, the Hellbents feel natural as far as fit. Once you get past the width, the bar seems to disappear as any good part does.

    The only few drawbacks to the bars are the height and weight. Mainly the height, as having a bar that shift's your position up about 1.5" so climbing steeps tends to result in front wheel drift. One other drawback to wide bars is the leverage they put on your stem. I went from slightly creaking stem with 24" bars to very creaky stem with 26" bars.

    If you're looking for a mellow medium width riser bar, these will not disappoint. Any part with the ability to 'disappear' under my hands or feet is a good part.
