For this full-carbon road handlebar, Easton doesn't use the E100 name lightly, representing the culmination of nearly 20 years of creating the highest quality carbon components on the market. The new E100 road bar uses the same critically acclaimed Maximum Contact Drop (MCD) shape as Easton's other premium road bars, with a stiff mid-section and long tails at the end of the drops for optimized ride characteristics and more hand positions. Most ultra-light bars sacrifice stiffness, durability and drop length to safe weight, but not Easton's. Their E100 bar meets the same rigorous fatigue and impact testing standards as their other road bars and does so as the lightest road bar Easton has ever created, a feathery 178g for a 42cm bar.
