Model/Year: 2016

Pros: -Light -Strong -Dampens out trail chatter -wide -cool

Cons: -None

Recommendation: This is a great bar for any enduro rider who is weight conscious, but still wants the strength of a heavy bar. It can take a beating, and the carbon construction helps dampen trail chatter a lot. The fact that they look frickin' awesome doesn't hurt either.

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: - Lightweight

Cons: - Expensive

Recommendation: Went back and forth on dropping the cash on carbon bars but finally pulled the trigger. Really lightened up the front end of the bike and made it less chattery. Wouldn't hesitate the purchase again.

Pros: Lightweight
Featherweight light
Did I mention they don't weigh much?

Cons: It makes you wonder what else you can purchase in carbon fiber?

Recommendation: Don't get these bars. Nope. Don't do it. In fact, don't get ANYTHING in carbon fiber. It'll only make you think of what else you can purchase for the bike that is made in carbon fiber.

You'll spend all your money on bike parts. You'll forget to get groceries. You'll forget to pay the electricity bill. Your phone will stop working. The lights will go out. Wait, did you have a job? Have you been to work since you started hunting down the best deals in carbon fiber parts? Have you shaved in the last 6 months? Where is the cat?

Seriously, these things are amazing. Super strong, able to take a beating, light as feather, and incredibly wide offering great stability on the bike. Couple them with a decent length stem and the front end of your bike will be loads better.

Pros: Lightweight, strong and a perfect balance between stiffness and vibration dampening

Cons: none

Recommendation: A superior bar made from carbon. I personally prefere the construction of the Easton products over others. The lack of a flashy coating of resin and weave is perfect. I prefere all the weight and strength that these have to offer. The bend on the Haven are perfect.
