Cycling Weekly Verdict

With the Easton EC90 Aero bar, Easton has done a great job of producing a good-looking, stiff and aerodynamic handlebar. We would like more features for internal Di2 cable routing, but the traditional cable routing that's present is practical and well done. We’re not sure the price difference between it and the EC70 bar is justified as there don't seem to be many actual differences between the two bars.

The Easton EC90 Aero Bar is a bladed handlebar designed to reduce drag and it certainly looks great with an aggressive shape and smart styling. The bars tipped our scales at 243g rather than the 230g claimed weight – this is still in the same ballpark  as other carbon aero handlebars. The claimed weight for the 42cm width is 25g lighter than that of its lower-ranked EC70 cousin but both have the same shape and dimensions.
