 Really an awesome bar. As strong as any alloy bar I've ever used, far lighter than most alloy bars, plenty wide, nice rise... Great bar. I could do without the gold coloring but, aside from that, this is pretty the perfect dh handlebar in my opinion.

 Pros:
1. Light as a feather (even the box)
2. Really stiff & absorb trail buzz
3. So strong, put away your worries with carbon. Nigh on unbreakable.

Cons:
1. Massive rise

 Great bar. 225 grams with a 3000lb. breaking point? almost unreal. I think this bar should not be limited to dh. It would also be a great bar for dj,am,and even xc for it's low weight.

 Pretty light, very stiff, everything fit on it quite easily except for ODI clamps... they were a little tight but it's not an issue with a few light taps with a rubber mallet after loosening the clamp bolts.

 Have ridden these on my slopestyle for 4 months now and like all Easton products I have ever used; they just work.
Don't think I'll ever buy a different riser bar. Highly recommended.

Cons: Could be lower and wider.

 I will never buy another bar again. Has the slightest amount of flex to take out take chatter bumps yet is ape-shit strong.
