    Fake. Too many grammatical errors.

    You had to ask? That's pretty obviously fake.

    Note # 3 is hilarious:

    "Highway bike handlebar Do not enter the mountain road, the wrong cycling will crash the road handlebar. "

    Yep, classic "Chinglish"

    The don't say Easton anywhere that I can so maybe technically not a 'fake'.

    But if you think they are Easton bars, um, I better go with 'no comment' on that.

    That's what I was going to say, they are just bars trying to look like Easton including a bar model that matches, but they aren't claiming to be Easton - if they were Amazon would have to take them down. Now if Easton trademarked that model name too, they may have to take them down but Easton would have to push that presumably.

    Aliexpress is full of fake bars with convincing labels-I could easily see someone buying the real item from Amazon for $300 and returning the $30 knockoff bar in its place; Amazon warehouse staff likely wouldn't know the difference and the next unsuspecting customer ends up getting suckered.

    That is a 100% genuine EC90 handlebar. Really. It's just not made by Easton. Easton's attorneys are so pitifully inept, not only did they not file for protection of the EC90 name, they didn't notice that Dongguan City Fei Ma Sporting Goods Company had done so. That chinese company not only copied Easton's handlebar and name... they had the balls to file for trademark protection with the USPTO.

    Yea it seems that china has jumped on the EC90 name and they just slap that on everything now and easton doesn't seem to care about it.

    Moving on, Just got a great deal on the 3T Ernova Team Stealth Carbon Road Handlebars for my Supersix

    If you can wait a month, Aliexpress is about half as much for the same counterfeit bar.
