I wanted a light carbon bar for road riding.
I think the carbon does help mute the road vibrations on long rides, and the shape is a very good compromise between a classic bar with a long flat area and a ergo bar that lets me get my hands up in the hooks easy.
I have large hands and this bar works well for me.
Also, I stayed with my normal 42 c-c width measured at the ends. This bar is a bit narrower at the hoods, but I like the feel.
