The 3T Ergonova Pro handlebars most notable feature is the wide profile on the top section of the bar. 3T designers refer to the profile as egg-shaped because it is a cross between round and oval. It is extremely comfortable and a natural fit to your hands. The tops have longer radius angle where the bar bends forward towards the brake/shift levers to provide more room on the tops and a smoother transition to the controls.
The bars are composed of triple butted 7050 aluminum that has been shot peened and anodized black Simple but effective white-sash graphics on black bars look great and signifies the bars as a 3T Pro level product.
The Ergonova Pro is available in widths ranging from 38cm to 46cm, so there is a size for just about any rider - including the small ones.
It's important to note that the bars are measured center to center at the ends of the bar. Each end flares out by slightly less than one centimeter each. This effectively means that the bars are slightly narrower at the hoods. The Ergonova Pro is available in a 31.8mm bar clamp diameter only.
Cat II rider for 25 yrs. Thought I'd hate these bars. I've always used a deep drop long reach bar. I thought the shape of this bar was all wrong but thought I should at least try it. One ride and I am converted. Love everything about these bars. The egg shape top is very comfortable and the shorter reach
Pros: Plenty stiff enough and comfy.
On all the handlebars I have had over the last 11 years - with the usual drop and reach - my fingers were just not long enough to get the brake levers while in the drops, even with shifter-shims. Decided to try the Ergonova shorter drop and reach. PERFECT in every way!
Couldnt decide between carbon and aluminum model. Chose this one because I wasnt sure about the shape. I absolutely love the shape (hand size L) and now I wish I had put the money towards the carbon version. This may be a little heavier than other similar bars but felt stiffer in the shop. I recall mine weighed around 300g in the shop. A great bar for a practical price.
