If you are asking about the side-to-side movement and power generated by your upper body imparted onto the bars ....I would say yes, you will lose some power when standing on the pedals. The grip on my Jones Bar is not as wide as the drop bars, therefore, some loss of power.
I use the Jones Bar - loop style. I am not a powerful rider that swings my bike from side-to-side when going up hill. I just need a place to grip onto. For that, it is fine.
