Strength:

Absorb vibration, light, strong, 5 year warranty.

Weakness:

Not cheap - actually, quite expensive... But as with many other things - you get what you pay for.

I opted to spoil myself and get some carbon bars to try to trim a little weight of the bike (mainly it was just to get something nice for myself). They replaced a pair of Salsa Pro-Moto's that were still in perfect shape. I had the existing grips transferred over as well. The weight reduction for just the bars is significant, but when the entire bike is taken into account is very minor.

On the first part of the ride it almost felt as if I was wearing and extra pair of gloves. I felt slightly disconnected from the trail - it was the minor vibrations not making it to my hands. The bars worked perfectly - when I turned them, they turned the bike - just like the aluminum ones I replaced... BUT - My hands did not get tired or go to sleep as they had on just about every ride previously. On previous rides on the exact same trails I would need to shake the blood back into my fingers at least 2 or 3 times, especially on longer downhill sections with a lot of braking.
