3T ERGONOVA LTD high modulous UD carbon HANDLEBAR
ERGONOVA sets a new standard in comfort riding, and our 2010 sponsored pro teams are liking it. The top of the bar is egg-shaped in section – the longer radius provides a wider top surface for the hands. The egg shape rolls through 180 degrees at the bend into the forward extension, placing the palms naturally onto the brake hoods and ergonomic drops. We developed this compact new shape in close consultation with pro and leisure riders, to provide day-long comfort on the bike. ERGONOVA is also available in a 38 cm width, making it ideal for smaller riders. ERGONOVA LTD is the state-of-the-art version of this bar in high-modulus carbon-fiber, weighing a mere 180 g. (This bar must not be fitted with clip-ons.)
On the underside of the airfoil top, 3T engineers put a broad channel to allow routing for two cables. Like the swage line in an auto's body work, this has the added benefit of imparting greater stiffness to the entire structure and allows 3T to eliminate any added reinforcement usually associated with flat top bars.
All this engineering paid off in the end. The Ergonova is arguably 3T's best selling road bar and is preferred by many of 3T's sponsored pros as well. 3T may not have meant to create the ultimate road bar, but in designing the Ergonova LTD, they did just that.
