For me, flared bars' advantages:

1) more comfortable overall
2) keep forearms from banging bars on rough descents when in the drops
3) provide more leverage (because they are effectively wider) on technical terrain

Basically, the rougher the terrain the more advantageous they are.

Disadvantages: wider, less aero, weird.
