Love the quality on these. Who of us hasn't had an end cap pop out mid-ride and roll down a sewer grate, or crash and shatter normal plastic end caps? Let me tell you, I crash a lot and these are well scuffed but still holding strong and ready to take another hit. They lock quite securely and don't use any plastic internals like some other brands. I don't care for the star graphic, but that's easily overlooked, especially after you scuff it off on the pavement!
