Do you think Carbon or Aluminum Headlebar is better for cyclocross?

Do you think Carbon or Aluminum Headlebar is better for cyclocross?

 

I am interesting in Easton EC90 SLX3 and EA70 Road bar.

 

Which one is better for cyclocross?

Aluminum. Gram savings are a fruitless pursuit. Plus you will crash. And nobody likes a crashed carbon handlebar.
aluminum. no worries when the rare crash occurs
I don't trust carbon for handlebars, stems or seatposts. I've seen catastrophic failures of each. Not so with aluminum. I like the EA70 bar, Thomson X2 stem and Thomson posts.
aluminum
that's funny as i just got a set of these EC90's for $100 and boy they make the front of the bike lighter! are they stronger? i'll have to find out? but i have seen a lot of people using them here in Oregon for Cross. http://www.jensonusa.com/store/product/HB297B00-Easton+Ec90+Slx3+Ha...
