I used some Cycra ones on one of my other bikes and they seem to be built a lot stronger than the Barkbusters. I haven't binned it hard enough to test them yet. But I have destroyed a couple of sets of Barkbusters. Plus about 5 sets of handlebars, on my other bikes.
I think the extra strength comes from the way they bolt to the bar end and then the bar clamp. I've only seen 1 set on a bike and they are beautiful. I thought they're a bit pricier than I wanted to spend.

I have some cheaper ones with an aluminum bar that i made some bar ends so they'd work with the grips. I haven't tweaked the bars yet and the levers are well protected
