:?: Hello, I need help

Is the Kestrel EMS Pro/sl roadbar strong and durable enough for my 75 kg and rough roads?

It should be, thats what I ride. Your a bit heavier, I weigh 60 kilos, but I never really flex the bar. I don't think theres anything to worry about, unless your Mario Cipollini. :wink:

They should be strong and durable enough (have a lifetime warranty and I got mine replaced for free when the stem bolts came loose and screwed up the bars, really my fault I thought) but maybe not stiff enough. I had no complaints about mine until I switched to some ITM Unika bars and they were WAAAY stiffer. Of course they were 42 grams heavier too.
