having watched that test, i wonder if measured deflection=riding comfort or if there's more to it.
More deflection equals more rebound so the darling of the bar is important. That’s what I really rate the Spank vibrocore bars. I’ve found the Spike (dh) bar slightly more comfortable than the Oozy (trail) bar at the same width, same grips.
Rather than material, it’s really useful to prioritise stiffness/directness or comfort, cost, safety (if you travel or crash a bit).
