It will depend on the model and manufacturer. For instance, I have an ITM Millennium Carbon SuperOver stem + handlebar combo that's so stiff you don't want to be riding it on rough roads for extensive periods. Prior to it I used a 3T ZeppXL oversized combo which feels like a noodle.

Again, that will depend on what loads you're referring to. Tests have shown that the great majority of bars aren't up to the job of "racing load". If you're interested in a good set of aluminum bars look at what the pros use. In this case it really does apply.
