I am thinking about some wider bars for my mtb.
I have narrowed my choices to the Enve riser bar or Easton Haven Carbon bars.
They are close to same weight and shape.
What bar is better and why?

I would go ENVE. The construction is of a very high quality, it is thick and looks very durable. I prefer ENVE over a bigger brand like easton, anytime.

Enve is no stiffer than Easton, just much more expensive. They are BOTH great bars. I tried them all...

Definitely Enve. Easton is okay. Decent quality. The company isn't great to deal with, though. Enve guys are very easy to work with.

Easton EC90 surely is lighter by a couple of grams. Enve maybe heavier but has that bling factor. You cannot go wrong with either one. Buy both. :thumbup:

I put 1000s of miles on both the Haven Carbon bar and Enve DH bar (cut to 740mm). I can't really complain about the Havens, other than they're only 711mm, don't have the friction tape on the center bit, and torqueing things onto the bar is a bit tricky since it compresses at about 4nm. I prefer the Enve bar. I don't think it's stiffer; it just feels more comfortable. The Enve is the one I put on my main ride. I like it so much that would go through the trouble of transferring it to a new bike if I plan to ride it more.

Anyone know if they Enve bars are made in America like their rims or in China like their stems?
