A perfect score.
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.

Light weight, looks fantastic and makes my bike look way more pro. More importantly it has a very compact bend so that riding in the drops allows superb position and comfort along with no need to alter hand position when reaching the shifters for braking and gear change. The stiffness of the carbon ensures exact steering with no flex at all. This all goes to improve the road feel and handling compared to the stock standard bar which came with my bike.
