    Anyone running these bars and have any comments? They’re very pricey, but I’m tempted. Need something strong, light and a good shape, and these seem to fit the bill, so long as they can take the knocks ok if (when) I crash. Ta.

    Good for me.

    I really like both of mine. At least as much as I liked the cnt monkeylite mx bars I had before.

    Cheers. Have they survived any crashes ok? I’ll be running them for Alps holidays and technical UK riding etc and I’ll definitely be coming off the bike from time to time, although probably not at crazy speeds as I don’t ride a DH bike. Ta.

    I’m sure I’ve parted company with the bike a couple of times and not given it a thought.

    Save some weight and get the Havens instead.

    the havens are 711mm. Havocs 750mm.

    I swapped my Havens for Havocs and have no regrets.

    But for the alps I would be tempted to fit some wide, cheap bars that you can regard as ‘disposable’.

    But saying that the Havocs are pretty much tougher than any other bar out there.

    They’re the successor to the Monkeylite DHs and mine were tough as old boots- encountered many an unplanned landing, but also shrugged off having the bike fall off the gondola at fort william and land on the bars.

    (just bent the Protapers that replaced them, in a wee nothing crash the likes of which the Monkeys didn’t even seem to notice.)
