The Syntace Vector 31.8 Carbon handlebars are one sweet toy that I am really enjoying. I like the sweep of the bars, which are ergonomic and very comfortable to me, although I am still getting used to how wide they are. They have an incredible feel to them, a touch of silky titanium along with carbon stiffness and damping. The bars have several unique features, including the stem clamp protection area (with no slippage), and the additional wall thickness under the brake and shifter clamps sections. The bars meet the DH 2002.4 accreditation, the world‘s toughest test standard for handlebars and stem, and have been tested and abused by the voracious VR-3 testing machine. Safety is what comes to mind about these bars!
