Strength:

Solid, full aluminum nicely welded. Cheap, I paid only $15. Nice shape. Light, not the lightest available, but close.

Weakness:

Might be somewhat skinny to hold for people with large hands.

These bar ends are easily the best deal on the market, as far as I've seen in the shops. At a cost, half or less of the competition, they deliver excelent performance.

What do I whish in a bar end: it should be light, comfortable to hold and build like a tank. These ends fulfill all of my expectations.

Though the tubes seem a bit skinnier than some of the competition, I've got no problem gripping and leaning on them. So for me this is a great product, no problem flaming this product to the max. Though your mileage may vary if you've got very big hands.

Strength:

They are very comfertible, light, and long, for strieght bar-ends.

Weakness:

They get bended, scratched, and banged very easily.

I'm talking about the ones that have that weird no shape shape, the 5 inch ones, cause Trans-X have a lot of models. They are very comfortable and they make you feel great while bending down to sprint. They are lighter than most 4-inch bar ends. The main problem with them is that they get harmed very easily, I fell and the left bent, and every little thing scratches them. But I'm willing to pay that price, cause their very unique, and only they have that great shape that makes it very comfortable to get down for a sprint. If you want to bye the best bar-ends there is, but you don't wreck things easily, or willing to pay the price, I strongly recommend them!

Strength:

Very light. Fit right into your hand. Very strong. Look great.

Weakness:

Scratches show easily.

You'd think these should be a bit more expensive! The rich kids that buy only the most expensive parts don't know what their missing. Easily one of the best there is.

Strength:

They're CHEAP without looking like they are. Fit my hands, have hanged in there despite some bad crashes. Don't add too much weight. Aluminum doesn't show the bruises the bar ends have received.

Weakness:

If you demand hi-end bar ends then you won't buy these because of the price.

Cost-effective bar-ends that don't cause any trouble. Remember, though, that you should try a couple of models, because bar ends are a matter of preference. These ones suite me (and my HiTen war-horse) very well.

These things are way cool and CHEAP! They're half the price of Profiles and the rest, but are just as good. Good quality welding, lightweight and they've got a double bend - one at the mount, and one about 2/3rds along. And they don't look dicky on DH style 'bars. I should also add that I don't think there's much difference between any bar-ends, other than weight, weld quality and personal preference as to shape and brand.

Strength:

Cheap Price
Differnt Colours
Light Aluminium
Good shape

Weakness:

Scratch easy because they are cheaply painted instead of chrome finished.
Not metallic paint, so colours look cheap and tacky.
Do not have grip-texture on the metal surface.

~Get these if you think that more than £11/$16 for two tiny bits of bent metal that are made in taiwan is a con.
~Get these if you are on a budget.
~Get these is your bike is not subject to treatment which is likely to result in scratches.
~Get these is you like bold, cheap, tacky barends; or if they match a cheap tacky bike that you are putting them on.

If you have spent more than £600/$900 on a bike, you might want to get something a bit more up-market.

Functionally though, it does what it says on the box.

Shape, looks

Weakness:

None so far

Very nice bars especially because of the shape, they really are ergonomic. I give it 4 chilis for overall performance since i dont know the result in the long run. Other peeps say it is quickly damaged so...

Strength:

they are very confortable because of their triangular chape.
also look very good and agressive on my bike. best i could find.

Weakness:

just get trashed very easy!
with almost nothing you get to scratch them.paint goes away easly!

they have the same wheight or less then any other bar end in the market. It has its weekneses, but i you don´t care for some scratches and no cool name like "specialized" or "titec" on your bar end, are looking for a very light and comfortable bar end, this must be your choice!

Strength:

Great value. These are great barends at a fraction of the cost of so-called superior barends. They look great on my bike in matching black colour.

Weakness:

NONE

These are great barends at a great price. Mine are scraped to hell from the bike being carried up a gorge but they show no sign of breaking. Unless you are one of those serious XC riders who count every gram then these are for you. If you ignore them because of their cheap price then you are a fool.
