Not the lightest out there but can't complain for the price.

Strength:

Very light and strong handlebar with excellent vibration damping. Looks are awesome!

Weakness:

None

I have the handlebar mounted on my XC bike and it looks absolutely cool. The width (660mm) added much more control and confident to my bike, resulting in faster racing.

The handlebar is mounted together with Ricthey 4-axis carbon stem. Now this is one sweet set of cockpit. Fantastic looks and super stiff.

BTW - I did some serious crashing with this bar and is still going strong.

Highly recommended!

Strength:

Excellent shape, look, feel and weight

Weakness:

As with any carbon, you have to be carefull how much to tight the screws on it. But it should be reinforced enough on particulate places.
The instant weeknes is that my stock stem looks like a scrap next to this handlebar and to replace it with adequate stem would cost me just further money.

I am used to wide hold in downhill and bar ends for uphill. For such combination this handlebar is unbeateble, plus the low rizer shape doesn't look inappropriate on the XC bike.
If you on the other hand belongs to those who tends to have the handlebar so short to place just shifter/lever clamp and grip on it, than run away from here.
I am giving 4 chilis for a value, because its quite expensive but overall its definitely 5.
