    Lighter and stronger. The ‘faster’ part is up to you.

    Easton's new Havoc Carbon DH Handlebar is a lot like its alloy sibling, the Havoc Aluminum. Both are monster-wide, at 750mm, and both are built to be scary strong. The scarier thing is that the carbon edition is a whopping 80 grams lighter. While that may not seem like a lot of weight, each gram counts as you start to fatigue on your 10th run down Garbanzo. And if you follow DH racing, you know that every racer on every level is now trying to get his or her bike as light as possible -- all without sacrificing strength.

    Don't ignore the latter point on your way to lightening up your DH machine. Your very survival depends on a tough handlebar that can withstand hundreds of thousands of feet of rugged descending. The fact that a brand as legendary as Easton is building carbon bars tough enough for DH tells you something about how far carbon has come, but all carbon isn't identical. Easton's in this game because their TaperWall system lets them build exceptionally smooth layups without any flaws or stress risers that you might find in other methods of construction. Translation: A stress riser is a wrinkle in the fabric of a layup, a single point that can soak up more load than was intended. By contrast, Easton's TaperWall is designed to work as an entire system, not only eliminating stress risers but allowing the whole bar to work as a single unit, passing all loads across its entire length.

    So while the Havoc Carbon DH Handlebar is exceptionally light, Easton's internal testing shows that it's actually far stronger than many alloy bars that also happen to be considerably heavier.

    Easton's Havoc Carbon DH Handlebar is 750mm wide. It comes in a 20mm rise with a 9 degree backsweep and 5 degree upsweep, and the clamp diameter is 31.8mm. It has a Matte Black uni-directional carbon finish.

    Great carbon bar for trail bikes

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I got the Easton Havoc Carbon Handlebar a couple weeks ago and have been loving it - not only is it light and strong (thanks carbon), it also gave me the extra couple inches in width that I was missing. The extra width gives me more control at speed and increased leverage when climbing.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Bars are one of those things where once you go carbon you wont go back. They are light, they feel great, and mine have already made it through a full season of abuse with zero issues. They aren't dirt cheap, but relative to other components they're a fairly affordable upgrade or part to add to your custom build. I love mine and would recommend them to anyone. For lighter duty riding and those who like a more narrow bar the Haven Carbon is another really great choice, but these can be cut down as well if you prefer. I cut mine to around 730mm.
