Easton EA70 Wing review£49.95

Smooth-riding alloy bar

BikeRadar score4.5/5

Easton claims A 130mm drop for this bar, which they must measure by tipping the bar way forward, as with the bar in a standard riding position we measured a whopping 170mm. 

Deflection testing showed it to be quite forgiving, not too flexible, but by no means super stiff. Out on the road that was confirmed by the smooth ride, much smoother than any other alloy bar we've tested recently.

The length of the drops and the flex characteristics of the bar make it ideally suited to longer rides where a higher front end might be used, but with nice low drops for descending.
