Easton Haven Carbon Riser Handlebar

A full 100 grams lighter than the alloy iteration, the Easton Haven Carbon Riser Handlebar is perfect for lift-served terrain or shuttles -- we find it more adept to enduro racing on wide-open trails. But, regardless of how you choose to use it, you're guaranteed a lightweight, rigid, and comfortable pair of bars.
Easton made sure that the Carbon Riser Handlebar was consistent with the entire Haven mission: Make it all-mountain tough. So, the Haven Carbon Handlebar is actually stronger than most alloy bars. This is due to a number of factors, foremost being Easton's computer-controlled, TaperWall material application.
This not only means that the bar is digitally designed, but that the layup itself is computer-controlled. This system prevents any flaws or voids in the construction that lead to later weaknesses. The result of the process is a handlebar that's laid up to work as a single-piece bar. This design allows stress forces to move along the entire length of the bar, rather than overloading any single portion.
Full-on DH'ers may want to go even wider (look at the Havoc Carbon instead), but for everyone else, this is the no compromises bar du jour.
The Easton Haven Carbon Riser 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.
