Easton EC70 XC 2013
The EC70 XC sets the standard for carbon fiber XC handlebars. This handlebar offers best-in-class value, durability and minimal weight. Want to upgrade the handlebars on your XC bike and don't know where to start? The EC70 XC is a great option. This handlebar is wider-than average at 610-millimeters (don't worry, you can always cut them down if you start feeling claustrophobic in the trees), and remarkably light at 125 grams.
I had a run in with a bridge railing and my right side brake and shifters rotated upon impact. The bar is still intact after many more rides and is long enough to be able to get through the switchbacks on my 29er.
Just received this bar and can't wait to get it on my bike. It looks great with the black on black graphics and feels very strong. Came in just over the published weight (130 vs 122 g), but it could be my scale.
