I hink what "Sweety" said is a good rule of thumb.......If your a DH'er then alu bars may be more robust......XC'er carbon would be fine.

I use carbon bars for the last year, my riding is always xc......
Just to add something else to the mix, my frame is carbon, so are my shifters and seatpost Wink , if carbon was so fragile I doubt they would make these parts.

Get some carbon bars, your love them!

In addition since fitting carbon Easton Monkeylite bars to my hardtail the difference in the shock / vibration on my hands and arms amazes me each time i hit the trails.
