Product Description

We took the industry-leading Havoc Carbon handlebar, the strongest handlebar on the market, and made it stronger. And lighter. And stiffer. And did we mention the new Havoc 35 Carbon is also 50-millimeters wider? We achieved this by borrowing from Easton’s motocross handlebar technology and upgrading the bar/stem clamp diameter to 35-millimeters. This new system makes such a dramatic difference in strength and steering precision that after one run, you’ll never want to ride another downhill bar.

Strengths:    the bar itself is a prime example of strength. the whole design was to build a bar that hand no flex, no play and was never going to break. not to mention it is at least 20mm longer any carbon bar on the market

Weaknesses:    it is a different standard then anything else. not a huge deal but you do have to buy the easton stem or you can't run the bar. but the bar itself can't be beat.

Bottom Line:   
if you want the end all to be all bars right now this bar is it. weather your riding it on an AM bike or your a hardcore hucker this is the carbon bar for everyone. this bar makes aluminum bars seem dated and pointless. the 35 is stiffer then a 14 year old boy in a strip club. you will not get trail feed back, no vibrations through the hands, and no flex. it is that good. yes when this bar came out i was a little pissed that we were facing another new bike industry standard but this one is for good reason. no other carbon bar has been able to get to 800mm without having major issues, well this bar solved that. easton has truly figured the carbon game out. the only drawbacks to this bar are not even with the bar itself its more with easton. 1 its the only 35 on the maker right now so you have to run the easton stem. i like the stem personally but it would be nice to have options and in the future i am sure we will. 2. you don't have any rise or back sweep options. they make one bar size and thats it. not a huge deal you may have to change a spacer or 2 but for some it might not be the right bar. 3. it is a bit pricey. i don't mind this so much because i love my bikes and want to run the top components but it might be to much for some.

all and all this is the best bar i have owned. Easton makes it super easy to cut down by notching it in 10mm increments so no measuring is required. it took me about 5 minutes to cut and file both sides. i am currently running it at 770mm and loving it. At the moment i am running this on my stumpy evo but i am about to put one on my m9. the bar is just that good. if you got the cash and you like to ride really hard, or you just want something new and very different this is the bar for you
