Easton's new AX series meets the needs of the Gravel/Adventure segment. Building off the highly successful and critically acclaimed lineup of Max Contact Drop (MCD) road bars, the AX bars utilize the same top shape and reach as well as ergonomic drop shape. But AX turns up the flare: from 4 degrees to 16 degrees.
Based on extensive testing and rider feedback Easton determined that 16 degrees was the perfect balance of maximum bar flare which still allowed for efficient access to the shifters and brakes in both the hoods and drops. The wider stance in the drops provides more control on gnarly terrain and long gravel assaults. Time to take the road less traveled.
