Easton Haven Carbon Riser Handlebar $0.00
It's kind of insane to think what Easton's done here. The Haven Carbon Handlebar is a full 100g lighter than their alloy Haven Handlebar. However, it's just as wide, at 711mm, making it perfect for lift-served terrain or shuttles, just like the alloy Haven. But this bar is so light, it'd be at home on any marathon race bike, and in fact if you want an ultra-durable bar for wide open trail riding, you'd be hard pressed to one better than this.
Ultra-durable? Yep. Easton set out to make sure that this Haven product is consistent with the entire Haven mission: make it all-mountain tough. So the Haven Carbon Handlebar is actually made to be tougher than many alloy bars, since Easton uses computer-controlled TaperWall material application. This means that not only is the bar designed digitally, but that the layup itself is computer-controlled, to avoid any flaws or voids that can be created during construction and lead to later weaknesses. TaperWall also works systemically: a handlebar is laid up to work as a single piece, so stress forces move along its entire length rather than over-loading any single portion of the bar.
Full-on DH'ers may want to go even wider (look at the Havoc Carbon instead), but for everyone else, this is a no compromises bar du jour.
The Easton Haven Carbon Handlebar is made of uni-directional carbon fiber and has a Matte Carbon finish with white and champagne Haven logos. The 711mm wide bar has a 20mm rise, 9-degree backsweep, and 5-degree upsweep. It mates to a 31.8mm oversize stem clamp.

Love the Bars. I'm running this bar plus the 55mm Haven Stem and the combo is just perfect on my 09 Enduro. 0 degree rise plus the low rise / wide bars keep me low on the bike. They are super light (170g actual confirmed weight) and provide great feed back. One thing I noticed off the bat was how much stiffer they were compared to my old aluminum bars. Worth every penny.
Great bars. Coming from an aluminum bar, the vibration dampening is actually very noticeable... I don't have the 'electric arm' feeling anymore after a rough descent. Plenty of room on the bars for lights, computer, ect. These bars also come with a 5 year warranty backed by Easton. They also look great-- smooth matte finish. Pull the trigger if you are on the fence, Easton really stepped it up with the new Haven Carbon series.
