Not to my taste (or wallet...)!

yeah, I can't make my mind up about these bars... they don't look great let's be honest, but they seem to kind of make sense ergonomically... would love to try them out just out of interest

I had a pair and didn't really get on with them. They're definitely singlespeed specific as any shifter mounting feels wrong. They're quite wide, so not the best thing if you like narrow singletrack. And whilst they're definitely more comfortable on the wrists on longer rides, I could never quite get the same steering response as with a pair of conventional bars - I felt limited in the amount of force I could generate, and struggled with small-scale direction changes. Some of these issues may be addressed by riding with them for longer.
