    “wreaking havoc”

    The Good:

    light, stiff, ok price

    The Bad:

    wish there were more width options

    Overall Review:

    I tried these and the 750 sounds wide but I have long goofy arms so I felt they could offer more lengths since my preferred is 780 min. However; these are some great bars at a decent price for carbon. They are stiff, wide for most people, easton quality = durability. They grip well to the stem with no turning and the lock on grips did not slide or turn. I would suggest giving these a try if you want more turning stability if you have anything narrower or looking to shed a few grams from aluminum. I have now gone to answer pro taper carbons for the width but these are great bars still.

    Miscellaneous Until our Havoc 35 Carbon bar came along, this was the strongest handlebar on the market. In fact, you’re still not going to find a stronger handlebar that accommodates a 31.8-millimeter stem. Plus it’s nice and wide at 750-millimeters and wicked light at 235 grams. We’re sure the Havoc Carbon bar has found its way into the test labs of competitors eager to figure out exactly how we pulled this one off. Truth is, we rely on the same, highly refined Taperwall™ technology that we’ve been using for years. The Havoc Carbon is lighter than most All-mountain bars currently on the market and, thanks to lab testing and ride testing on the bikes of top gravity riders, we know it’s even stronger and tougher than much heavier alloy bars.
