Easton EC70 SL3 Carbon Road Handlebar
Easton took the shape and specs of their most popular road handlebar -- the EC90 SLX3 -- and used a slightly different carbon fiber to create the EC70 SL3 that delivers pro-level ergonomics in a more affordable package. This handlebar's shallow drop and compact reach allow instant access to the levers from a wide range of hand positions and this bar accommodates every major brand of shifter. With the addition of TaperWall technology and Intelligent Flexibility this handlebar is super-strong, ride-tuned, and weighs in at just 230 grams.
  • Easton EC70 carbon fiber construction is lightweight, strong, and stiff
  • TaperWall technology provides strength and stiffness exactly where you need it
  • Intelligent Flexibility technology delivers added vibration dampening comfort
  • Shallow drop and compact reach provides instant access to the levers from a variety of hand positions
  • Matte UD carbon finish
  • Weight: 230 grams
  • Hood widths are 1cm less bar end widths each side (i.e. 46cm bar width = 44cm hood width)

    Comments about Easton EC70 SL3 Carbon Road Handlebar:

    Absorbs less vibration than the aluminum bar I took off. Little room for the hands behind the levers. If you want a good stiff race bar with a short reach and a shallow drop, this is it. Not what I look for in a carbon bar.

      Comments about Easton EC70 SL3 Carbon Road Handlebar:

      I've been looking for a great set of wide (46mm) CF bars for my road tandem. Between the bars and replacing the stoker stem, the bike dropped about 3 lbs. Now the bike is even more comfortable to ride on rough roads. Have to keep your stokers happy after all. The slight flair of the drops is an added comfort and a bonus for wrist clearance.

        Good solid handlebar. I've owned several Easton carbon handlebars and they've never disappointed me. This one is no different. It's light and not too wide for a 46cm wide bar. The bar has a nice Bend and is pretty light. Good purchase.

          I ride to go as fast as I can with the comfort of a safe ride in country and city ...I like these bars on my carbon bike just a great feel close to the breaks with hand position is much safer for me in the country going off road or in the city with traffic.

              Comments about Easton EC70 SL3 Carbon Road Handlebar:

              My expectations for a carbon bar were limited - no real weight advantage but maybe smooth out the ride some, so gave it a try at Nashbar's great price. This is a nice bar that should work well for most of us real world cyclists in terms of reach and drop. Based on other reviews I ordered the 46 cm bar and sure enough it measures 44 center to center across the top of the bar, the standard measurement of bar length so I suggest ordering up 2 cm from the length you actually want. No internal cable routing and don't care - much easier install and the cables across the front of the bar top give it a somewhat aero shape after adding the bar tape. Install is easy - the bar has a roughened surface at the stem clamp. Just torque to the stem clamp nameplate evenly tightening the clamp screws, and add bar tape. Your old tape can be reused if still in good condition. Put about 200 miles on the new bar and I find it does a noticeable job of dampening road buzz and muting the bumps - better than expected. They won't transform your bike but is a worthwhile upgrade.

                I was hesitant originally of getting bigger handlebars, but after riding with them it was a great replacement. It feels tremendously more stable now and my shoulders are much more comfortable after a ride. If you are thinking of upgrading your handlebars because you are a larger build like me - it is a wonderful upgrade. These bars are a great deal for the price as well.

                  Nice carbon bar to match my carbon bike. Looks great, quality seems to be right on time. I'm not sure how much dampening i'm getting, which is the biggest reason I got this bar, though it is better than the aluminum bar I had. It is very stiff under power I must say, in a very good way. Very happy so far. Easton is a good brand, I had a monkey lite back in the day so they've been around, and it rocked then.
