Strength:

Soaks up road vibrations. Flat spot on top of bar is great for climbing. Looks good.

Weakness:

Durability. Wrapping the bars is a pain.

Had these on my bike for 4 years and the clear coat started to flake off where there was no bar tape. Contacted FSA as I thought that is was a pretty short period of time for clear coat to fail. I did know that they only have a two year warranty, but still. They tried to tell me it was due to sweat, but I never sweated on that part of the bar. They also told me that race type equipment never lasts that long anyway. However, I never raced with them. I have had issues with FSA stuff in the past so I think I am done with them.

Strength:

Beautiful Carbon appearance. Flat top felt much more comfortable and the bars absorbed the small bumps. Much lighter and aborbant than the original Ritchey allowy bars.

Weakness:

Carbon bars and frame act as a sound amplifier. After the first install, I heard a rattling like cables clanging somewhere. I remover the bars, slathered more installation compound and lowered the bolt torgue below 5 NM. That worked!

Installed the K-Wing carbon bar along with the K-Force Carbon Stem and FSA carbon spacers on '10 Wilier Izoard. The Carbon weave finished is beautiful and matches my K-Force carbon cranks. I dropped about 1/2 lb. The front end felt very light,stiffer, much quicker reaction, and flat tops felt perfect. Larger serface provided better grip while standing.
