Love the product. Use them mainly for Triathlon races with aero wheels. A little confusing at first on the website with regards to Kit. Thought I had ordered a kit of different sizes. Instead, they come multiple in a pack of the same size. So had to buy multiple packages to get extenders needed for different size rims. Now I have a bunch of extras I probably won't ever use. They will go into my parts bag I take to every event in case someone else needs something.
All I can say is good things about this handlebar. Feels great in the drops and grips good on flat top for climbs. Paired with the Zipp Service Course SL Stem... you can't go wrong. Didn't notice any flexing. Atheistically... Beyond Black looks killer!
The Zipp Service Course SL Stem (in Beyond Black) is my personal favorite when lusting for aluminum. Super stiff, lightweight, and dependable. AND... it looks damn good!
My 2011 Trek Cronus Pro came w Bontrager ergo bar with sharp bends. It worked ok but could only get a few comfortable positions in the drops due to the angular bends. This became tiresome on long rides. I looked at many bars and the SL-80 seemed like the best option and I was right. The bend is nice and smooth, I could move around in the drops unhindered. I can easily reach the brake levers both in the drop and on the hoods. The moderate drop and reach makes this bar comfy on long rides. I didn't know how uncomfortable the Bontrager was until I experienced this bar. Another plus, I love the look of the bar The middle of the bar is machined nicely (shiny) creating a nice contrast against the flat (dull) finish of the rest of the bar which I've not seen on other aluminum handlebars.
