Easton Havoc Carbon Bar

Carbon bars are now more commonplace than ever, and so it seems is their acceptance even at the most extreme end of our sport, but out of all the companies producing carbon bars there is still one that we trust above all others, and that’s Easton. At just 235g they offer a considerable weight saving when compared to aluminium bars, and at the same time tests have proven them to be stronger than even the burliest of metal counterparts. If you’ve got the money these really are a rare case of win/win. They have a good shape to them too, and although some of us like to run a bar a little wider on a DH bike the reality is that the 750mm width is fine for most of us. If you really want to go wider then the 35mm bar clamp version of these bars comes in at 800mm, but for our tastes they’re just a little too stiff.

Price: £129.99
