Easton EC70 Carbon Handlebar 720mm 31.8 2014
Hardcore trail riders need a hardcore carbon handlebar. The EC70 is the trail riders' perennial favorite. Available in a low rise and a high rise, the EC70 is made of a carbon composite that Easton has been developing for more than two decades. This bar is also incredibly light at 186 grams for the low rise option.
Fast shipping and delivered in pristine condition. Easy mount and adjust and like one of the prior reviews, friction paste is a must on the mount and levers. Difference from the straight race bars (610's) and this bar is great. The width and slight rise gave me the feel, control and comfort I was looking for with my 29 Carb hard tail.
From the feel to the look to the reponse I get after I installed these bars, I could not be happier! I paired these bars with new Easton grips and the combination of the two makes for a more comfortable ride with less strain on my hands. Perfect width. These bars look great too, a few of the guys I ride with noticed my bars and were really impressed with the look of them.
This bar lightened the cockpit by about 200 grams, dampened harsh trails, and made the bike more responsive in technical sections. Nothing but love for this product! It is always suggested to bring your bike to a shop for installs of this nature. If you are doing the work yourself; Be familiar with carbon: buy friction paste for the stem and lever interfaces, and a torque wrench to protect your investment... and your neck! Enjoy! 5+ Star Product
