It's not rocket science to design the strongest crash bar configuration possible: identify as many solid mounting points as you can and connect them all with a cage of mild steel tubing. It's the number and location of mounting points that determines how strong it is.
But if you are willing to hang an ugly cage around the thing, why not just strip off the plastic parts and live with some dents and dings in the rest?
