Mr HollandEaston bars seem to suit me just right and feel solid without being too lardy and this bar is no exception. Great feel, fit and now nice and wide too. Merlin price was best on the web and arrived next working day.
Living for fast And rough DHThis bar is perfect for my riding style (over the back wheel some of the time and over the front sliding into corners the rest of the time) It's also wide enough to give good control but not so wide that you worry about clipping tress. The bars angles are also very good but that's down to rider preference I guess. I've had a few heavy crashes with this bar on other bikes and it's not yet bent!
CarlI was a bit worried about going with a mid rise bar (having used low rise on 3 of my 4 bikes for the last few years), but constant wrist ache on my pride and joy has vanished with this fantastic bit of kit. Excellent price, perfect width (no trimming of the ends required for me - which is good as I know I would ruin it if I had to!) but it does make some trail obstacles a squeeze! (Cannock trees line the trails quite closely!), and ideal height for me. Running it on a 70mm Thomson stem and they fit like a glove, a well fitting glove, a well fitting matching glove!
Mr airsonI was looking to upgrade to some wider bars but didn't need the mega wide DH type these measure up at 750mm wide and immediately felt perfect, the finish is perfect with quality graphics. I have also not had any arm pump problems like I did with my previous bars which is a massive bonus. Definitely recommend these to anyone looking for some hard hitting bars
Mr thompsonSuperb bars at a good price with fast delivery, what more can you ask
Mr TurnerRight quality. Right price. Great Merlin service. Mated with a 44 mm stem, also a Merlin purchase, the handling of my bike it transformed, in a good way
Mr FraserGreat bars at a great price. Excellent service from Merlin as always.
syBrillant bars, great shape and relatively light weight considering width. Bargain price too.
Mr HoltonThis is the third set of easton havoc bars I've owned and I've never been disappointed with the quality and feel, even nicer with the 750mm width, great price and fast delivery as well from merlin.
Neil BNice width alloy bars from a trusted name. I don't like/trust carbon bars so these fit the bill. Much cheaper too :D
Mr hillPurchased these bars for replacement on zesty. Bars are light strong
Mr OutramI like it. The extra width has made a huge difference to the feel of the bike with it being a lot more balanced. The bar is light and very stiff. Looks very well made.
markgreat bars, great price and superfast deliver, perfect
Mr TBought these with the view of cutting them down a bit. But they feel spot on as they are. The price Merlin are knocking these out for is ridiculous. Looks great in grey too!
Mr Morgangreat bar, perfect width
Mr BFantastic price on a good quality set of bars.
Mr irvineReally comfy,make a huge difference to control :)
Mr SmithLovely bar for a superb price! Feels strong. Great finish and nice detailing. Cool addition to any bike!
Scott SGreat bars - I ordered the mid rise and they are just right at 30mm rise. The finish is superb; overall a great product from Easton.
Mr taylorfantastic bars at a even better price would higjly recomend them to anyone orderd them at 3 got them next day fantastic service thank you
Mr gregorygreat bars would recommend,good lengh and feel and a speedy service couldnt ask for more!!
Mr lawLoved my havoc carbins so bought these for my winter hardtail, great shape, pretty light and even better price!
PaulThey're not massively wide at 750mm, so they're well worthy of consideration if you're planning to fit wider bars to a trail bike. Straight out of the box, they're very nicely finished with calibrations that align perfectly with a Thomson stem and mine weighed in at the quoted weight of 305g. In use, these bars are comfortable, reassuringly stiff and the finish is robust, the fact that they're light enough to be considered for an XC bike is an added fillip, but the icing on the cake is the price Merlin are charging, which makes them an absolute bargain.
Mr BullivantExcellent product, a perfect upgrade for my alpine 160. Spot on width and rise, quality look and feel. Best price by far too.
Mr FowlerA really great bar at the usual merlin low price and delivered on time. Thanks
Mr MilneGot my new Havoc bars a few weeks back, thought I'd give the wider bars a go and see how I find them. Three rides in and finding them mucho fun. Only smacked off one tree on the first run in a tight twisty section, but that's all down to over doing a corner on my part... So, great bar for a superb price!
Mark in DurhamSame weight approx as my old ea50 685mm high rise. Has a great feel on the bike. If you are unsure about a bar this wide on an XC or trail bike I would say go for it. It has much more feel and control especially with a shorter stem and at 30+ pounds what's not to like!
Mr StephensAnother great bar from Easton. Very comfortable and not too heavy for 750mm width. Great price too!
Mr ProudPerfect width for me and seem to be holding up very well!
Ed SkyeExcellent service. Ordered on Sunday night and it was delivered by Tuesday lunchtime. Not bad considering I live on he Isle of Skye. The Havoc bars are tidy, light and a quality finish. There is no hint of flex even though these bars are 70mm wider that my previous OEM bars. Outstanding product, outstanding price and outstanding service.
Mr CadyFantastic set of bars. Just the right width, rise, and angle, and at an absolute steal of a price!!! Delivered super quick as always with MerlinCycles. If only the bigger online cycle stores could offer a consistently excellent service too. You know who you are!! Next purchase will be a wheel upgrade, and I'll definitely be coming back here. Well done guys!!
Mr EDWARDSBrilliant Riser Bar. Great fit and finish. Note: the Havoc Bar has a matt/ slightly rough (shotpeened finish) - unlike the Haven which has a smooth gloss finish. I've cut mine down to 710mm- great fit and feel on the bike, without being too wide. Recommended
Mr PerryDecent light-weight bar and wide enough at 750mm to trim if needed. All the quality assurance you need from Easton and at a fantastic price. Can't fault them.
SteveNot all that wide by today's standards... but these 750 width bars have really improved stability of the front end of my Nomad, even next to the old 720s
Mr aucockexcellent riser bar, light ,perfect sweep, great looking graphics and you know it will be strong coming from easton. very fast delivery from merlin.
Mr MurakawaLooks very good, and lighter than other DH Bars. 303g at original length.
Mr pondergreat bars. feel really good on my hemlock, like the markings on the ends to make cutting them shorter easier. here next day after ordering, great service from merlin as usual
Mr JonesGreat looking bars with a quality finish and good shape, reasonably light and just the right width for my AM trail bike (body sizes and lengths of arms may vary!), I like 790mm for DH. Recommended.
