Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good looks, super light and stiff This handlebar is stiff, comfortable and as light as it gets. I would have liked the weeved carbon look on them, but the mountain design at the front looks amazing, which makes up for this. 03 November 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful Bars Absolutely stunning bars and incredibly light, a worthy investment! 28 March 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly recommended bar and company! I emailed Answer with a couple of questions about the bar and I got a prompt personable and concise reply from the product manager himself! Like the other reviewers say, the bar itself is real pretty with a snazzy unidirectional weave, neat graphics, and a nice deep/hard lacquer coating to keep it so. I have no issues with my controls slipping on the bars (both Saint and XT stuff) and didn't have to overtighten to achieve this. I got this bar to replace an Azonic freeride rated carbon riser bar of the same width (which is as stiff as owt and 100g heavier), because I wanted less angles involved up front (backsweep and upsweep). I figured there would be a trade-off in stiffness as the Azonics were bomb-proof, but to my surprise there was absolutely no discernible difference in rigidity, which, when you factor in my height and weight - 6'4" and 250lbs - is rather bloody impressive for a 130g bar! 12 October 2011

Rated 5 out of 5 by My fault! Update on previous review. I swapped my brakes for later Juicys and they clamp fine. Must've had a dodgy set of brakes! 30 January 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bling and light! Cosmetically it's very pretty with big-weave top layer. In use, very stiff and actually 680mm uncut. I had a problem with my controls slipping around the bar, I think it's slightly under-diameter and very hard and shiny. In the end I had to pack out my Avid Juicys with aluminium tape in order to get the controls to stay put. It 'seems' to dampen vibration well, not sure but on a long road run my hands feel better. Weight is spot-on, the lightest plus-620mm bar out there, worth the high purchase price if you're a weight weenie like me! Would be a five but cost and the slippage problem drop it one. 23 August 2010
