First there have been round bends. Then anatomic bends, then removable faceplate stems unleashed bar designers to get truly creative. That creativity was once further expanded when carbon-fiber turned into a viable handlebar material. There are such a large amount of shapes, such a lot of styles as of late, but beginning to see a few of the changes beginning at the carbon-fiber end after which being adapted for aluminum bars.Carbon-fiber to aluminum adaptation is where the Easton EA70 Handlebar design is available in. It’s according to the EC90 SLX3 handlebar, Easton’s one of the best bar, after which tweaked to work with aluminum. The SLX3 is designed both for comfort and to position you in a comfortable, powerful position when riding the drops, hood, and tops.The great thing is you get some of the SLX3 shape at an excellent price. The basic drop of 130mm and reach of 75mm is unchanged. The transition from the highest tops to the forward reach is in a similar way tight and flat and designed to work with Campy, Shimano, and SRAM levers. The bottom of the drops is where the aluminum shows its limitations, and a more “ergo” shape is seen, but if taped, it will have to feel similar to the SLX3. The aluminum tube that the bar began out as was once formed with Taperwall construction. Because of this in spite of the seemingly smooth profile at the out of doors, the tubing wall thicknesses change over the length of the handlebar. Thicker walls in areas of great stress, thinner in areas of low stress. The result is a tuned bar that may be light, stiff where you wish to have it to be and strong where it gets stressed.The EA70 has a round top section that may be grooved front and rear; cables will also be run front and rear, or just in front depending on what you prefer. The center section is bulged to 31.8mm. The handlebar is available in three widths, 40, 42, and 44cm all measured center-to-center. The 31.8 center section is strong enough for clamping aero bar extensions to.
