Strength:

Flat top is great for riding on the tops. Good angle. Hand numbness is not reduced much as the hoods (DA7800) cause the greatest amount between the thumb and index finger. These bars fit me well, though, and have a nice anatomical drop.

Weakness:

A little heavier than a standard Alu bar of the same dimensions, but the wing profile does increase weight. No way around that.

I chose these bars based on the drop and reach, and because I wanted a flat top bar. Also, it is available in 40cm width. The carbon version looks great, but doesn't pass my grams per dollar ratio.
Message to bar shoppers: look for a bar that fits you just right rather than shopping by weight/bling. The correct dimensions in a handlebar are arguably as important as frame dimensions, IMO.

Similar Products Used:

oodles. I'm very picky about bars.
