The EA70 handlebar is made from Easton's light and durable EA70 aluminum and features a compact drop and reach as well as an ergonomic bend in the drops to create a bar that will stay comfortable on long rides. The EA70 also features groov...
Strengths: Stiff and light, 210 grams for the 40cm C-C size. The bends makes me able to reach the shifting leavers while on the drop (with proper settings of course), so you can jump to heavier gears in an attack without getting back into the saddle.
Weaknesses: May be a bit tricky for those with bigger hands. And if you use Campy, nowhere to route your shifting cables.
Found some good holiday pricing in town with a great return policy if the bars and I don't get along. $35 out the door. In terms of weight and stiffness does Easton do a good job or is money better spent on the likes of Ritchey or 3T?
