    Syntace Racelite Carbon Bar Opinions?

    Anybody own this bar (31.8) or have tried one and could give a review? It looks like a great bar with all the ergonomics I want but I am wondering if its stiff enough. The ligher weight makes me wonder how it compares to what FSA offers which was my original choice. The make seems to stress its durability. Thanks for any info.

    Did you buy one? If so, comments? I fondled one at my local bike shop today and was amazed at how light the XL 46cm version was. The curves seem really comfy, too. The high cost (even with team discount) and questions about durability (I am 180 lbs and race Cat 4, and have never owned a carbon road bar) make me hesitate though.

    I have sold a few and test rode one. The bars are light and stiff.
    Syntace products have one of the highest testing standrads of ANT brand. Durablility will be there and Syntcae stands behind every product big time!!
