Strengths:    Unbelievably light- weighed 186.4g on my scale

Weaknesses:    They Broke!

Bottom Line:   
I had these bars for about six months and used them on 2 different bikes. They are unbelievably light, and I liked the ergo bends.

I work as a Messenger in San Francisco, and one day just going over a pothole the left drop snapped. Granted, I put it through much more stress than a lightweight handlebar should be put through, considering I would pop up and down curbs, go over hundreds of potholes a day, and they were on my cyclocross bike.

I was extremely happy with these bars while I was using them, but I would not recommend them to somebody who rides like I do.

Strengths:    light, made in Italy, comfortable

Weaknesses:    they aren't the stiffest bars, the cheapest, or the lightest.

Bottom Line:   
The handle bar is very light and reasonably stiff. The anatomic bend is much better than my previous bars, and I rarely find my hands becoming numb. They absorb a good amount of road vibration because the tube wall is so thin.
The 31.8mm adds stiffness to the bar, which is needed. The graphics look good.
