The Evolve handlebar is a highly engineered bar at an attractive price point. Designed for XC riding yet strong enough for all-mountain adventures as well. Manufactured from cold drawn, seamless 2014 aluminum.
I only gave it 4 stars because the bar doesnt look so well, it looks a little rough, they came as stock in my Santa Cruz.
You can't beat the price and the look of these bars. Very cool, strong, and fairly light. Agree with the other reviews: there's lighter bars, sure, but when you can save money here to use on nicer components, this is a great trade-off. Love em!
It's an aluminum bar at a great price. Got this to get a slightly wider bar than the 685mm I was running. I like the added width but I don't like the angle it puts me when riding, not the bars fault, but there is no upsweep and too much back sweep for me. Being aluminum it isn't the smoothest feel on the trail, but a pair of ESI chunkys helps. I really can't find a fault for what this bar is, but I will be going back to an even wider riser bar in the near future.
This is a great bar for a lower budget build. You'd have slight weight savings going with the Turbine, but for the price it's a good choice. It's also a great width for people who may not want the narrow cross country feel.
