Triad has applied their titanium bar design to make a very strong steel bar. If you are unfamiliar with it, they have made the steel thicker in places where there is high stress, and thinner where there is less stress. In other words, these bars are much less likely to bend at the crossbar! These bars are LIGHT for steel and do not come with the flex that titanium bars have. So if you hesitant to try out titanium bars because of the natural flex they have, definitely give these a try!
