If you're the kind of rider that prefers to save a few dollars and still have fine gear, the 3T Xida Team Carbon Handlebar offers up an aesthetic equal to its higher priced sibling. Instead of the spendy high modulus carbon used in the Xida LTD, the Team uses a more general purpose carbon fiber. The result is a bar that is supremely strong and still quite light. It gives away a mere 24 grams to the LTD. The Team Bar has the same shaping and bend as well, including the new 3T compact design.
What the 3T "compact" design does for you is allow a significantly greater clamping area for width adjustments for your cockpit controls with room to spare for fork lockouts, seatpost remote levers, and lighting systems. Their engineers reduced the width of the oversize center-section of the bar without sacrificing strength or stiffness. It doesn't even matter if you like a narrower bar and cut it down to their minimum recommended width of 570mm, you'll still have all the mounting freedom you could ask for.
The 3T Xida Team Carbon Handlebar comes with either a clearcoated unidirectional carbon fiber or White painted finish with red graphics and is 640mm (25-3/16") wide. It's a flat bar, though the outer handles are offset by 3mm above the center of the 31.8mm clamping portion of the bar. It has a 3.5 degree sweep, half that of the Eryx riser bar series. The clamp surface is textured for a no-slip fit inside your stem.
