Great price for these bars. They're light, as specs suggested, good shape, and I'm sure I'm experiencing less pain in my arms from reduced vibrations. Might all be in my head, but noticed it from first ride, so pretty happy,
Ultra light ultra strong!
This bar replaces an aluminium havon bar. The extra width is noticeable and gives great comfort and leverage on downhills. It's really stiff, whilst having that carbon characteristic of damping 'trail buzz' and it's really light too. A great aggressive trail bar at a great price and great service from merlin!
The Mountain Whippet
Light, strong, beautiful, confidence inspiring, and the best carbon bar ever!!
Nice, light, look good, slightly different shape to the slightly higher rise bars I had before but I've grown to like them, especially at Merlin prices!
Great set of bars, light, comfortable, very strong and the best price on the web from merlin. Also come in the perfect width so no chopping down required, an excellent purchase.
750mm of confidence inspiring carbon.
750mm feels a fair bit wider than 711mm but you quickly get used to it and these are very well finished, light and comfortable. I'm impressed with the control and leverage without noticeable flex.
Great bar, very stiff in a relative low weight (240 grams). I had the Easton Haven before and I was very satisfied, so I bought the wider one for All Mountain use.
This is a great bar. I used to have the Alu Havoc fitted to my mini DH but after a day at Stiniog my hands were ruined. Swapped to the carbon version and returned a couple of months later and zero hand cramps. Winner. Best price I could find online and delivered super quick, what's not to like?
Purchased this to replace an old alloy EA50, The first thing I noticed was how stiff this bar is,gives excellent control and was lighter than the alloy EA50 which had been cut down and was about 100mm narrower,I purchased an Easton Haven Stem at 70mm to pair with this to give the front end of my bike a new look. Great product and great service well worth buying .
All good so far. I wondered if it would be comfortable when I looked at it, the bend seemed a bit shallow, but once fitted & adjusted it's fine.
For me it has a great combination of light weight, strength & comfort. Although way stiffer than the alu bar it replaced the carbon soaks up trail buzz pretty well.
Width is about right for me although it'll likely be too wide for some. If it is you can cut it down using the guide markings.
Can't find anything to complain about & Merlin seem to have the best price.
So good I bought another set! They have just the right amount of sweep and rise, are stiff yet reduce buzz and the width is spot on. Oh and they are light...what more could you want from a bar.
Bars arrived promptly and are as described.
Having started with a fantastic price from Merlin, the delivery was very swift. Upon opening the box, the Easton quality is obvious. I'd wanted a wider bar to gain additional control on the downhill segments and this delivers time and again. It is very stiff and I don't notice any flex [with the 55mm Haven stem I got to go with it] but do notice a useful degree of trail 'buzz' being dampened - adding comfort to my hands/forearms. The bar's angles feel natural. Comfort & control ... what more can you ask !
Incredible strength and light weight. They seem to shrug off crashes and feel as though they'll survive many years of abuse. The only carbon bars I trust.
What more can I say about these bars that has not been said before, exceptional. To get the weight saving combined with strength in a 750mm package is win win. Excellent price combines with super fast shipping, merlin cycles just keeps on being one of my top shops to buy from, highly recommended.
Great bars, great price from Merlin (as ever), and great service.
want to shed some weight but not strength,these are a must.easton super build quality as usual.look the part when matched with the havoc stem.
Light, strong, wide. What more could you want?
These bars are incredible. Confidence inspiring width, nice taper so loads of room for decent brake set up etc. and really light all at the same time. Good service from Merlin too, cheers.....
