Tears of aerodynamic joy.

When designing the Aeronova Team Stealth Handlebar, 3T took the Ergonova's reliable carbon construction and slightly flattened top section and pushed it to the very limits of UCI compliance. The Aeronova's tops are a true aerofoil teardrop cross section, which fully complements the wind-cheating shapes of your frame's tubes. After all, all that aerodynamic technology in your frame, helmet, and even clothes is wasted if the part of your bike that leads into the wind behaves like a parachute.

The 127 millimeters of drop are nice and shallow, but the generous 104 millimeters of reach give you a huge platform to grab whether you're out of the saddle for a sprint or lightly holding the very ends during a long day alone in the wind. They also flare 6° to comfortably accommodate your wrists for those long grinds. If you opt to save weight by omitting bar tape on the flats, the internal cable routing keeps your cockpit tidy.

These bars are extremely light, if not the LTD model. They obviously have a super cool look both with the matte finish and aero lines. There is a more pronounced flare to the drops than most road bars. The size 42 measures 42cm from drop end to end but at the hoods it's 39. 3cm is a perceivable difference. Most bars are not 1:1 but the Cinelli Ram bar I was using previously measured 40.5 at the hoods for the same "size" bar. If you think you're crowded with your current bar, consider sizing up. The other consideration that was mentioned by a few others was the reach. It truly is larger than many bars so you'll need to adjust with the stem length. I'm glad I came across that detail before buying the 3T LTD stem which is pricey. I just went by the numbers (reach + stem length) and the fit came out great.

Combined with the 3T LTD stem, the set just looks top shelf and is a joy to ride. I also appreciate that there is enough round bar section to mount an out-front and bar accessory bar that I use to mount a headlight.

I found the threading of cables to be not very intuitive. There were no instructions on how to do it but a pair of plastic tap sleeves suggested to put your cables through them. If you do this you will likely ruin your cables because they will kink. The objective is to get the housings through. I found that using the cable taps was useful but only with a sacrificial cable passed first into the tap from the shifter side, out the tap and into and out of the housing. Then feed the tap and housing together out the shifter side. You can pull on the cable in any way to get the housing to come through the bar. You'll kink the heck out of the cable but who cares, and it's quick and easy. You'll also need to thread the housings side by side in only one way: forward to inner/ rearward to outer. That means that the housing you want exiting the shifter port nearest the inner side should be placed on the forward side at the input. When you're installing it this will make sense. If you don't do it this way, the housings will be crossed inside and you won't be able to get the second one out.

Jay, thanks for the review!
I was planning on ordering the Arx Ltd Stealth Stem and Ergonova Stealth bar, not this bar. Essentially I'm trying to match my current set up and do not want to change my reach to the top of the bar or hoods as that's where I ride the majority of the time. I have a BMC stem and bar. If I purchase the same length stem why would my reach to the hoods change with the 3T bars? Is it because the length from the center of the bar is longer to the hoods? Just trying to figure this out so it's as close to my current set up as possible and these parts are so expensive. Thanks!

John, Late response, but the ergonova may not have the same reach specification as these. Check it and go by the numbers. Find your current setup spec for stem length and handlebar reach. Keep the sum the same and you should be happy.

Nice Bars

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I will start off by saying I am not sure how aero these bars are. However, the work well in so many ways that I don't really care if they are.

These replaced a 3T Tornova 42 Team handlebar that felt a bit wide for me (5'6", 135lb, 41" at the shoulders). I wanted to try a shallow drop bar and these were on sale so I thought I would give them a shot.

Other websites speak to these bars not running true to size. Some say they are narrower than advertised (by 2cm) and create a longer reach compared to standard bars (also by 2cm). Depending on how you measure the bars, they might be slightly slimmer. I bought a 40cm and at the hoods, measuring from the outer aspect, they are 40 cm. As far as reach, they are slightly longer. I had a 100mm stem I switched out with my usual 120mm, but the loss of the 20mm, even with the reach felt wrong. So I am not sure how much these will stretch you out. Just be aware that the reach may put you out a bit further.

Installation was simple. They come with tubing routed through the bars. I just taped my Di2 and break housing (electric tape) and gently pulled it through without any snags. If you are routing Di2 wires through, I recommend going with them first as the holes are snug and it can be hard to route the wire past the rigid cable housing.

It wasn't hard to put the shifters in a comfortable position and the drops have multiple comfortable positions.

The tops are something I am not sure everybody will love. For smaller riders (like myself), the tops are wide enough that gripping them with thumbs under can be uncomfortable. I ride with my thumbs on the tops anyway so not a big deal. The reason I question the aero tag on these bars is that the foil section on these bars is relatively small compared to the whole thing. If you spend a lot of time on the tops, I would get my hands on them before committing. What I really like about the drops is that they slant down. This creates a pocket of sorts that is very comfortable if you are leaning on the drops.

Taping the bars was a bit challenging. Granted, I am no expert but I found getting around the bend in the bar a bit fiddly. Also, there is some question if you want to tape the whole bar or leave it short. I compromised and went halfway. I don't spend a lot of time on the tops, so leaving half the hand space untaped won't be an issue. I did want to tape where my forearms rest because I found it a bit slippery when sweating.

Another thing to like about this bar compared to other aero bars out there is that it has plenty of space for head unit mounts, GoPros, etc., giving you plenty of options.

Overall, I really like these bars. The flat, wide tops may not be for everyone, and the extra reach is something to consider, but I really like them. On top of all of that is that they look damn sexy and will make any bike prettier.

Nice Bars

Is there a bar similar to this (flat top, shallow drop, ) that is ~44cm at the hoods? The flare is nice but makes the hood position too narrow for me in this case. I'll still consider it but would prefer a wider position at the hoods, where I am 90% of the time.

Have you felt a set? Most bars have some amount of flare such that the hood width is not the bar width. I don't find a specification on hood width on these are any other but I would imagine the proportion is the same as my review details above. These bars have a higher flare than usual, I would agree.

Comfy ergonomics and looks great

The 3t Aeronovas have a great short and shallow drop with a slight flare, a very comfortable top section to rest your hands on when climbing, and come prerouted with cable guides to make installation relatively easy for a road aero bar. The stealth matte/gloss finish works with almost any bike's paint scheme and looks great.

Is there room for clip on aerobars?
