Shape is personal, so these will either work and you'll love the shape or not. Personally, I love the shape and that the drops flair about 2mm out and extend back a bit further than some others i've tried, giving you some different positions. I'm not a WW, but they are very light and the finish is top notch, as you'd expect. These are not on my race bike because I have no interest in dumping it and breaking $300 bars, they're on my steel bike with enve road fork, alum. stem, and HED Belgium wheels with 28mm Vitoria corsa controls at 80psi (front), and the setup is very comfortable and there is zero road-buzz. Results may vary, but I love this setup.
