Hi Everyone,

I am interested in getting these carbon bars. I have the RS seatpost and they are awesome and want to get these bars to match.

My main concern is that in some posts I was reading they are really thin and are very flexi. I'm 81 Kg and don't want to be worried about something which is fragile especially on climbing rides when descending.

Would these be fine for me?

I'm in the same boat as Dowks; no issues at all and I'm approx 87kg. I have them on my Colnago and have just ordered another pair for my old Supersix. They are extremely well finished.

The 31.8 are flexy bars (85kg here) but should be safe.
