    Easton Monkey Lite XC Bars good enough for Hard Trail/ AM?

    As above really... are Easton Monkey Lite XC Bars (Carbon) good enough for Hard Trail/ AM? I bought a set of these bars for my Heckler which is set up more AM and I'm wondering if these bars can take a bit more than XC?

    Any Thought...?

    I have these bars on my 2006 Ibis Mojo and have not had any worries or problems with them the entire time. They are great handle bars in my opinion.

    I put a set on my Yeti 575 a year and a half ago. I worried about them for about half a ride and haven't given them a second thought since.

    Ride on
    No moss...

    Also had doubts but Easton website says they are fine for AM,so I put them on my heckler and have had no problems.

    No problems here either on the bars. Had them for almost a year before the bike was stolen. I was worried in the beginning, but I have not heard of anyone with problems... I'm pretty light though.
