Trustworthy and good looks

The Good:

Attractive design Strong Great upsweep/backsweep combo Direct feel without being harsh

The Bad:

Not the lightest Not as forgiving as some lighter weight aluminum bars, or carbon

Overall Review:

I have gone back and forth between carbon and aluminum bars over the years without having major issues with either option, and unless I'm desperate to save some weight I generally prefer the aluminum option for peace of mind. Deity makes my favorite bars at the moment as they generally stick to my preferred upsweep/backsweep combo, and they offer nice subtle designs that pair well with most any bike.

While I've used their Skyline bars before (same angles, just lighter), I generally prefer the Blacklabel as a go-to bar for every bike in my garage. The shape and stiffness are familiar, and the bars are rated for DH so I don't have to worry about strength. The Blacklabel is certainly a stiff bar, but still has come compliance built in. With a decent set of grips, I haven't had any issues with

With a decent set of grips, I haven't had any issues with hand fatigue, but I do appreciate the direct feel that a stiffer bar provides.

Overall, its a set-and-forget bit of kit, and I can't really imagine a higher complement for a bar than that.
