I looked into Mika Metals because of their claim that their bars slightly reduced vibrations, so I decided to purchase a set of the 1 1/8 bars, and try them out. 

 

The first thing I noticed is Mika has a different design from any other "fat bar" that I have used. Unlike other companies that only use a cross bar on 7/8" bars, Mika uses a cross bar on the 1 1/8" bar also. I wasn't sure I'd like this at first being used to the normal "fat bar" style, but after awhile I didn't even notice the difference.

I can't say for a fact whether the bars noticeably reduce vibrations, but I have never noticed excess vibrations. I also think the crossbar adds some extra strength to the bars. I have had multiple wrecks as I'm sure many riders have, but I have not noticed any bending at all. It might just be that I haven't wrecked hard enough to bend them (knock on wood), but I think these bars are stronger with the added crossbar. The black paint on the bars also has no chipping at all over a full season of riding, which I find rare.

 

The only complaint I have with these bars is that I couldn't get a normal set of 1 1/8" bark buster mounts to fit due to how far up the bar the taper goes. I ended up having to buy longer bolts for the bark buster mounts. Minor issue, but I wish I was aware of it before hand.
