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

Comments about Easton EC70 SL3 Carbon Road Handlebar:

I returned it because it has the sharpest bend I've ever seen when going from the bar top to the hoods. It's like a sudden 90 turn. Combined with a short reach to the front of the bend where the shifters would be, it means you don't have an extra hand-hold (think of holding a car's steering wheel at 4 & 8 o'clock). It also doesn't have cable grooves to tuck your cables into. I can't recommend it as I've used carbon bars with better shapes that will feel better over long rides.

    Comments about Easton EC70 SL3 Carbon Road Handlebar:

    My first set of carbon bars. They are great. Previous review about sizing helped me. Great bars so far. Really helps me stay in the drops. Feels great and secure when I put weight on them. Did take some vibration away, but minimal.

        Upgraded from al handlebar with this carbon handlebar and fizik tape/gel. definitely feels the difference - less constant road vibrations from the grits in the pavement. Still feel bigger bumps but that's unavoidable.

        Warning! These bars are measured differently...

          Comments about Easton EC70 SL3 Carbon Road Handlebar:

          Most handlebars are measured centre to centre on the tubes just behind the brake horns. When I received these that measurement (for a 40cm bar) was 38.3. I called tech support and they explained that Easton now measures their bars end-of-tube to end-of-tube. Because the drops are flared out slightly. That makes the bar tops very narrow--almost 2cm narrower than expected. Nashbar graciously exchanged the bars for the next size up and paid for the return postage. I encouraged tech support to add a warning to their Easton poat. Has not yet happened.

                Great ride improvement over my original aluminum bar, I'm surprised. Jarring impacts from pavement cracks are gone, and much of the road noise too. This carbon bar upgrade nearly matches the ride improvement gained from getting a saddle sorted out. No significant weight difference and no lack of stiffness noted either.

                  Nice bars, Easton quality never disappoints! One thing about these though, i researched the bars first on the Easton website and it shows they have grooves in them for cable routing. That was an attractive selling point for me. The bars i received do not have the grooves so i'm assuming they are of an older generation??? Anyway, no big deal. I do like the compact size of these bars. My last set were Ritchey's and they were much bigger bars all the way around.

                  Comments about Easton EC70 SL3 Carbon Road Handlebar:

                  Probably like many of you, I have ridden many styles of bars..compact, ergo & wing..but they all were aluminum. I was worried about the carbon breaking while riding, but I got over that after watching several YouTube videos.

                  After my first ride, 40 miles in San Antonio FL, I am upset with myself for not buying them sooner. The road dampening was phenomenal and the shallow compact drop is great.

                  Mine did not come with carbon paste, so if you dont have some, visit your LBS. Heck, just have them install them too. They enjoy doing upgrades instead of repair after repair.

                  Tip..my levers allowed me to run the brake cables right down the center front of the bar and the shifter cables down the center back. Then I spiral wrapped it very firm with electrical tape. This took off some of the "edge" around the cable line in the bar tape. With the cables like that made it fit my hands similar to small wing style. I love it.

                  All in all, I couldn't imagine being any happier with any other bar.
