Back in the early 90s I had 2 different brand handlebars break whilst riding. After experiencing that, I never want that sensation again! <I was around 136lbs at the time>.. That said I'm in the market for a new flat handlebar & like the look/price/dimensions of the New Ultimate EVO Flat Handlebar. Does anyone have any long term experience of this handlebar please?

thanks!

I have their riser bar so pretty close.
It weights 128.1g in 31.8mm 700mm width glossy finish.
Had it close to four years now and no issues.
I have not noticed any flex compared to Syntace duraflite carbon it replaced and it is 700mm wide vs. 580mm
Bar is paired with Kalloy UNO stem. Rider weight 140-145 lbs.
