None yet. Except, I wish I could find it in the flat version, they don't make these any longer, once they are gone, they are gone.

The stem and bar came off of my Jamis XCT. I was thinking of going with carbon for my BMC Cockpit. When I took these off of my old bike, i couldn't believe how light the two were together! I grabbed the Carbon set that I had bought, and their really wasn't much difference. So I went with the Race Face. I love it! Very Comfortable. Light and Rigid. The finish tends to wear, but hey, its a mountain bike. Slight Rear Bend seems to fit me just fine, I'm 6'1", 185lbs. I just wish that they didn't stop making these a couple of years ago.

Strength:

I beat this bar with drops and alot of jumps. It handles them with ease. Perfect width and rise. Almost as light as carbon but it will not crack. I love the fact that the rearward bend is very little.

Weakness:

NONE

This bar brings a light xc feel to the aluminum market. For me all the right angles.

2yr warranty

Weakness:

At 25" (640mm)I suppose it could be considered not wide enough for some people.

This bar is great, it's strong yet light. I've found it to be very durable too. It has been between two bikes and I've taken brakes / shifters / grips off heaps of times, changed stems etc yet it still looks better than the Hussefelt bars did after just one installation!
25" seems to be ample width for me, but you can almost run out of room if running just about full length grips in conjunction with grips shifters as well. The 1" rise is perfect and they mate to the Syncros FR stem very nicely

I think they're fantastic bars, great value & probably under-rated compared to others. I would highly recommend them for XC or AM riding.
If I was buying new bars right now it would be between these and maybe the Syncros Gain Bars.

Strength:

Hasn't broken yet. No sign of abnormal wear and tear.

Weakness:

None so far.

Sturdy bar so far. I like to ride aggressively on technical trails(rocky, rooty and small drops between 2-3 feet). I don't trust carbon fiber but I didn't want a heavy aluminum bar. The Deus XC fits what I was looking for perfectly. It's aluminum but still fairly lightweight.
