The Ergonova Team Handlebar isn't the most luxury priced piece of kit in 3T's line, but it may be the most common handlebar at the start line of most local races and criteriums. The reason for its widespread appeal is rooted in its carbon construction, which follows the same lines as the more expensive LTD model with a nominal claimed weight gain of just 18g. While those few grams are what separate the Ergonova from the LTD, the slightly flattened shape of its top section is what sets it apart from the industry's legion of carbon fiber bars. The flattened shape adds some aerodynamic oomph to your cockpit, but the real benefit is the larger surface area for resting your hands during climbs or while sitting in on long days in the peloton. Since the bar is relatively shallow for an ergo model, it accommodates an aggressively low stack while still letting you reach your levers from the drops, which are contoured to provide a secure platform for tucked, flat out hammering.
