What do you think of these Bars?

http://www.cambriabike.com/bars&ends..._riser_bar.htm

Description:
Known for our world famous bar strength, Azonic has reached a new level of performance with the Ultracross handlebar. We have incorporated a 6061 T-6 aluminum crossbar with CNC machined clamps and our WF riser bar to make our all new Ultracross bar. Features a molded crossbar pad and full laser etched graphics. Width 26" Rise: 2.5"

Available in Black and Polished.
So strong we guarantee it for a full five years!

i think they look pretty sweet, anybody have any experince with them? or pics of them on a bike?

If you're a DH rider or Freerider it is great. For XC it is way overkill.

If your anything under a super advanced rider, then you dont need it.

Exactly...this is for people doing big ass drops. This is not for the average rider or even averg freerider. I think they may even be oversized but even if they aren't...I hope you are doing 25 footers cause thats what these beasts are made for

I've got basically that same bar, minus the cross braces. I like it alright. It's very wide and has a nice sweet.. which I like. I hate narrow XC bars... give me some sweep, some rise, and some width man! That bar is major overkill...... but hey.. it looks cool
