I think carbon bar is uselessly expensive. :-) Is not any more lighter than your Al bar.

... don't have any info on the bars, but they do exhibit some of the "strengths" of carbon fiber... that is, the ability to create a more ergonomic rider/bike interface (or so it would appear). I'd be interested in learning more about these (not all riders spend 90% of their time on the drops).

Where did you see them??

Since so many carbon parts come from Taiwan, this is probably from TW as well. Could be a great bar but since it's not proven brand, I wouldn't take the risk. For half the money I'd get a Deda newton and get the peace of mind. Also does anyone ACTUALLY feel the traditional bar grip uncomfortable so that they need the weird shaped carbon bars? Just my 2 cents.
