I originally swapped these for my Nitto 28" 2lb riser bars circa 1995. When flat bars were popular the first time around as gave you extra room for levers etc. These were made from very thin wall Easton EA 70 before Easton decided to venture into the cycling accessory market. Only Carbon varaints are lighter today which makes them one of the best products of all time. I trimmed them down by 20mm each side and they weigh

Weakness:

none - no fatigue after 11 years of use

These are ø25.4 mm, 580mm,silver 3 degree, 138g ( I never liked the purple anodizing like Ringle etc at the time) and these are as good today

This handlebar rules! Read in a magazine you should swap handlebars every year... not with this puppy! I removed the stem, handlebar several times for inspection, but I found no cracks. I ride for over 4 years and had no problems at all. When it starts creacking, remove the handlebar from the stem and clean it, it's just dirt that got between the 2 parts. If you want a light XC h-bar that you can trust, look no further. 5 chilis please !!

strong bar. it has resisted my heavy-handed riding and numerous crashes unscathed. well worth the money for the weight it saved and the ride.

The five degree bend is comfortable. Acceptable width (23). Light and silver. Don't break at -5F.

Had this bar on 3 bikes! going to replace it just because I want a longer one, I cut this one down a bit and now after a couple years it is going to be relagated to one of my other bikes. It has not failed me but it is old. Ok I am making excuses for wanting some new bars! It is hard to imagine any part lasting so long that a person must make excuses to buy a new one. I have not owned a longer lasting component.

Great freakin' bar! Looks good, strong and stiff and best of all, light. I've been using the bars for about five years now. Although I don't ride everyday, I do go out most weekends and the bars have withstood everything I 've dished out (wish I could say the same about the Judy cartridges, I 've gone through 3, but that's another review). I would highly recommend these bars. They rule! Speaking if which, I should probably change bars by now... (I'll be buying another Hyperlite!)
5 Chilis, baby!!!
