Easton Haven Carbon Riser Bars ?
#1
Looking at maybe getting 2012 Easton Haven handlebar. 9 deg bend, 711 mm width, 31,8 mm diameter, lo rise 20 mm. (I can get trade prices  Tongue)

These weigh in at 170g  :o

They have great reviews but i hear Carbon in general becomes weakened when knocked ?

Don't really want carbon in my face if they snap, so anyone got any advice on carbon bars, or personal experience with them ?

Cheers,


Harry  ;D

I have these and I am assured by people in the know that I am totally incapable of breaking them.  Smile

Unless you're going off a lot of 12ft+ drops to flat you'll be fine.

Lol carbon is stronger than aluminium, and these bars are stronger than eastons aluminium ones.

The strenght of carbon is way higher than that of ali. Dont believe they work harden (unlike ali). And yesy i have apair and they are not broken. but then again I've never broken ali ones either
