Expensive PITA that does exactly what I wanted

Overall, it's an expensive handlebar. Great.

Pros: Better vibration damping than my old aluminium cheapo handlebar, which was surprising. Cable routing is nice. Clean aerofoil section is nice. It's clean, stiff, and light; what's not to like?

Cons: Installation was a PITA. Overall, the internal cable routing seems alright, but there were multiple sharp edges on the *inside* of this part that kept binding my cables. These internal edges scuffed the full length of my cables, which is annoying. The binding cables also made drop installation and fitting even after the cable installation a pain. If you're making your LBS deal with this bar, no sweat, but they'll probably tack on at least an extra hour of labor just on principle, if not two.

Installation tips: First, if you're doing this yourself, you _absolutely_ _must_ get one of those cable routing kits. Honestly I'm surprised I didn't break my routing bits at multiple points, with some of the geometry required (you gotta use a lot of force to turn some of the corners). Second, and I can't stress this enough.. install the larger cables first. When I did my install, the geometry was flat-out impossible to get the large cables back out if the small ones went in first. The smaller (4mm) cables are more flexible, and being smaller allow better geometry to boot.

Super comfortable handlebars

Love them. They are light, have internal cable routing and are very comfortable with the flat top. They are expensive but worth it for Easton quality.

Pricey, but nice

Comfortable bars used to smooth out the ride of an old road bike and even older rider. Slick internal cable routing. Five stars for fit, comfort and quality but three stars for price.

Purchased this handlebar for my aero bike, extremely satisfied with it! Lightweight, aero and I love the reach and drop of this bar. Internal cable routing somewhat tricky but I figured it out. Not as light as the EC90 aero bars but for the price, these work out just fine!!

Pretty great!

Moved over from a Ritchey WCS alloy handlebar, after a crash, and this is noticeably smoother. The aero section is super comfortable for cruising and the drops are just right. Great handlebar!
