    Wow, I haven't seen a steel handlebar in 20 years, at least not on a decent bike. It weighed 2 pounds and bent anyway. And the only handlebars I ever "popped" were aluminum.

    to the OP: the only 35mm carbon bar I know of that's actually available is the Easton, the only others I know of that are supposed to be around in the near future are Race Face. I'm holding out for the sixc because of the 30mm rise.

    The only CF bars I trust are Easton.
    I have the 31.8 DH Havocs and 35mm DH Havocs. The 35mm are stiff stiff and light. Did I mention they were stiff?
    I have 20mm rise on them which is not a lot. My monkey arms don't need much rise.

    I have nothing at all against Easton and have generally found them to produce quality products, but I am curious why you trust Easton carbon bars exclusively?

    They do claim to do what looks to be extensive in-house testing, but how are you able to discount everything else, when they don't profess to test to any known industry standards?

    Maybe I'm missing out on some info I can't seem to find.

    Not based on any criteria other than Easton has known QC and real engineering. Not just relabeling outsurced product from China product.
    That and riding on Easton Carbon for 15 years and never having a single incident.
