Suggestions for lightweight handlebars for CX?

Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

I'm using Specialized S-Works Shallow. 196-197g in 40cm. Really like the shape and feels a bit sturdier than Deda Superleggera I had before in the same shape.

My wife is running the Thomson KFC bars on one bike and the S-works shallow bend classic drops on another. She is pleased with both. The Thomson bar seems stiffer, which could be good for a larger rider.

I am running the Pro Vibe carbon round drops on my bikes and am really happy with those.

I have also used the 3T Rotundo LTD and Team with good results, although the Team was a bit flexy feeling compared to the Pro.

Oki, not that light but what do you like the shape?
