Comfortable, Durable bars

Rating:
The Good:

-Comfortable -Great Vibration Dampening -Durable -Perfect amount of rise for XC/FR

The Bad:

I guess should come in different lengths to support different styles of riding

Overall Review:

I ran these on my '08 Turner Sultan in an FSA alloy stem and they worked great for harder XC and freeride.

Awesome vibration dampening, good rise, had no complaints. I like twitchy bars so the 680 width was awesome. Stable, comfortable bars. Pretty durable too. They did crack on a major crash, but to be fair I am 6'7" and 190 lbs, so I have no business with carbon anyways. Took an impact of 35 mph directly on the outermost left grip to produce a hairline crack. Wish I could say the same for me (double snapped collarbone, 2 broken vertebrae, collapsed lung).

I would recommend these as budget friendly carbon bars to Read More »

The Good:

Weight! That;s it. Go get the Easton Havocs or ENVE 800's.

The Bad:

680mm is barely wide enough for an XC rig let alone trail/AM/DH...they must be trippin!

Overall Review:

Completely miss-marketed! Not a trail/am/dh carbon bar...NOT EVEN CLOSE. 680mm is out! Why is CrankBrothers so far off the back with the current standards? Should be ashamed of themselves
