Strength:

Price point. Weight isn't bad (265g). Ergo bends make them very very comfortable. Can be used with aerobars.

Weakness:

I have never seen handlebars that were this flexible.

I have medium sized hands and the ergo bends on the drops fit me very well. The bars that came on my Felt F90 had an ergo bend that was actually not wide enough for my hands (only about 2" long"). These bars have plenty of space (approx 3.5-4") on the ergo bend. Additionally, they have the bump to help even out the pressure along the palm, just like my favorite handlebar, the Nashbar 7075 Lite bars.

However, these bars seem to be a lot more flexible. My Felt bars had no flex (but were heavy and uncomfortable) and My Nashbar bars are actually lighter and less flexible.
