Weighing in at a scant 178g, the carbon version of Easton's new Haven all-mountain bar is, in a word, amazing! It's 711mm wide – the perfect trail width – with 20mm of rise and a comfy nine-degree backsweep.
Thanks to Easton’s TaperWall technology the carbon Haven is strong and stiff at no cost to the overall weight. The bar was an instant hit when we fitted it to our test bike, with handling improving and the sweep and rise feeling instantly natural. There’s the chance of a nifty bit of weight saving to be had here – if you can justify the pricetag!
