are 199s strong enough for cross?

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

Are 3T Prima 199s strong enough for cross? I was thinking about either this bar or Deda 215s. I weight 69 kilos/150 lbs.

I have used the 1999s on my road and cross bikes for two years. No problems, but they are not the stiffest. I plan to get the easton equipe when $$$ permit to stiffen up the front ends.
