Easton Cycling initially made its name by producing competition-grade alloys, and â€” when carbon first became a viable option for performance enhancement â€” the company demonstrated its innovative nous to become one of the leading pioneers in the synthetic field. The EC90 SLX Handlebar represents the culmination of a tradition of development innovative cycling products that, in reality, are just a hell of a lot of fun to ride. While Easton manufactures a few aerodynamic models, the EC90 SLX is myopically focused on reducing weight. And it does a smashing job of it.
The EC90 SLX isn't the absolute lightest bar we've seen, but the bars that beat it on the scale typically sacrifice reach and drop. These dimensions have already taken a pretty significant hit from the ergo trend, and those of us on frames larger than 50cm will definitely appreciate the extra millimeters of real estate, even if it comes with a 15g penalty. Given its dimensions and weight, the EC90 SLX is one of the lightest models on the market, and the fact that it does so while dropping almost $100 off the typical price for bars in this class definitely helps make up the difference. Finally, the MCD shape and TaperWall technologies let Easton hit weight targets while still modelling recesses for cable routing.

Light, comfortable control
- I've put it through the wringer
I finally installed these over the weekend, after using aero drops for a few weeks. The aero drops were too narrow, & I couldn't climb or sprint out of the saddle w/o feeling unstable. The Easton bars are a dream. I got 46cm & they are probably a little too wide, but the extra leverage they provide for sprinting & climbing is superior!

I am going to place an order for these bars and Di2 upgrade components. I will order 42CM. I also need to order an EW-JC130 Di2 cable. Could you tell me the correct size of cable to order. The junction box will be in the bar EW-RS910 Thanks for your help
