Syntace prides themselves on utmost reliability and strength of their products, they even offer a 10yr warranty on all of their products. The Duraflite 318 is no exception it has an ergonomic form factor with an 8 sweep and Centre Rise geometry which keeps the top of the bar flat and the 318 "bump" acting as a riser.
Just like the Vector Carbon, the Duraflite has the titanium lattice woven around the clamp areas and on the edges of the bar to reinfoce for barend use, Syntace does recommend these bars to be used in conjunction with the CRB barplugs. These bars are strong, they have passed the rigourous VR-3 testing standard, they also give a ride quality that many stiff lightweight bars have lost - A speciality carbon layup stops the trail buzz but still remains stiff for the ultimate in streering precision. Finished in Uni-directional carbon with a gloss clear coat. Finished with a clear coat over uni-directional carbon. Although an XC specific bar, these are VR-3 downhill standard approved.
