Quite functional. I have them on my dirt road and paved road bikes. If you do most of your riding from the tops or hoods you'll love 'em.
As for durability, I think the handlebar would snap before the Take-Off.
One caveat: if you have interrupter levers the shift lever may foul the brake lever at the rearward end of its travel. Careful adjustment of the interrupter lever angle will fix this.
You know it's going to be a good day when the stem and seatpost come right out.
