If there’s one name that we’ve truly grown to trust when it comes to carbon bars it has to be Easton, and these gravity/ downhill Havoc bars are the strongest they’ve ever produced.

We wouldn’t be surprised if they’re actually the strongest bars full stop, carbon or aluminium, and despite their incredible strength and a full 750mm width these weigh in at just 235g. That’s a substantial amount less than even the lightest aluminium offerings, and we know what we’d trust more.

The shape of these is great too, and aside from the weight saving on offer we also really like that extra bit of ‘give’ that you get compared with an aluminium bar. They might not be cheap, but we reckon if you have the extra cash then these are definitely worthy of it.
