Rated 5 out of 5 by jgmu97 Great Bar, light and strong, good for the price
When looking at upgrading the stock bar/stem combo on my Hardrock, the Answer Pro Taper Expert 720 AM took my eye. The main reasons were because of the price. Sub £30.... Bargain.
The bars graphics are very good, and look brilliant once they are on the bike. I went for the 13mm rise and they are about perfect for me. The width is great for my XC/Trail bike, and when matched with a short stem, offers fast and responsive steering.
I was impressed with the weight of these bars. Its hard to see how they can be made so strong, with such a little weight penalty.
Overall, i think these bars were a great purchase. One of the most cost effective upgrades you can do with the biggest benefit is getting your cockpit set up right (Bar,Stem and Grips)
These fit the bill perfectly for a weekend warrior like myself. Definitely reccomend them to a friend

Rated 4 out of 5 by MountainSnail Great new feel to my bike
I bought a pair of these (50mm rise in Red) at the start of the Summer and it transformed the feel of my bike. The more upright riding position made it easier to lift my front wheel over obstacles while at the same time the wider bars gave much better feeling of control through tricky bits.
Probably a bit on the heavy side for weight weanies though

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Strong , Light , Good Quality.
Bought these bars to upgrade the stock 660mm ones on my Specialized. The first thing you notice is how much more control you have other the bike. So much easier on the downhills... And ups.
They seem light , and with the 31.8mm clamp , they are strong too. Look good and feel great. Changed the way my bike rides and is probably the least expensive upgrade that can have the biggest effect.
Went with the .5'' rise and it gives me plenty of confidence , wherever i am on the trail.
