Easton Haven Carbon Low Riser Bar 2012
All Mountain riding has been progressing as fast as the number of iPad Apps, so it's no shocker that Easton asked their design team to create, not just an incredibly light, impossibly strong composite bar, but an entire collection of parts all designed to help All Mountain riders roll faster and fly farther.
A crucial element of the new Haven group, the Haven bar is a full 711mm in length, yet weighs just 174-grams. Is it tough you ask? In their testing, the Haven Carbon bar proved to be stronger than the 2010 MonkeyLite DH bar. Credit that to the use of an enhanced composite material, refined TaperWall butting and improved shape.

Nice looking bar, but not very tuff. I just barely clipped the end of the bar on a tree and the bar broke off at the end of the grip. If you want safety and longevity stick with the aluminum version, it's not worth the weight savings. I do give price point 5 stars+ for their warrantee of the product.
There so light I thought box was empty. There stiff as hell. I dirt jump and have taken some crashes and no problem everyone called me crazy for getting carbon bars there sick
I really like this bar. It is wide but not bull horn crazy wide. It's light and looks good. The only problem I had with mine is that the print of the alignment markers was not centered on the bar. So I had to use a ruler to line it up properly.
