3T Ergonova Team Stealth Handlebar $369.99
The 3T Ergonova Team Stealth Handlebar was designed with compact drops and a shorter reach to provide a comfy yet race-worthy ride for any type of rider. The Stealth version takes all the attributes of the Ergonova Team and packages them up in a sleek, monochromatic finish.
The Ergonova Team Stealth is made from carbon fiber with a compact design for all-day comfort on the bike without sacrificing stiffness and control. With an egg-shaped top section that flows seamlessly into the brake hoods, this bar provides extra surface area up top to alleviate any pressure points or awkward angles that could lead to numbness or discomfort.
The drops have an angled, ergonomic shape that allows for more contact surface area, reducing pressure points compared to traditional round bars. The drops also flare out by six degrees, leaving the hoods 16mm narrower than the bar ends. While that doesn't sound like much of a difference, it's just enough to make the drops more comfortable and allow space to reposition hands for comfy control through any corner or county line sprint.
The Ergonova Team Stealth Handlebar comes with a matte black finish and gloss black 3T logo. It's also compatible with most clip-on TT bars.

3t Ergonova Team Stealth.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Buyer Beware: The bars run smaller than listed on the packaging. I bought what I thought was size 44mm (center-to-center), however they are actually 43mm. I installed the bars and I realized they felt smaller than my previous 44mm bars. I put a tape on the them center-to-center and the bar width measures 10mm shorter than what they are advertised! As far as I can tell 3t measures center-to-center on their bars like most manufacturers. If they are measuring different, then I have failed to properly notice.
The bars do feel very nice in the hand. The contours and shape are very comfortable. I believe they are a good bar just run short so buy accordingly.
I need a 44cm bar, out of luck and cannot return them. I scratched them while installing mg Dura ace Di2 shifters. Live and learn, measure before installing and read previous reviews.
A good bar, BUT not perfect!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
First of, I like this bar well enough to keep it, but for the money I wish 3T would work out some of the kinks.
-Very stiff, no noticeable flex even under the heaviest of efforts (may partially be due to stem combo, notice no 3T stem)
-Ovalized tops for comfort
-Shallow drop, great transition
-Sizing (not true to size C-C, 42 is more like a 40, had to get 44)
-Small diamater tubing in the drops, had to double wrap
-The drop ends are really short, if you ride in the drops a lot you will miss not having the extra length
-The internal routing is less than perfect. Difficult to route cables in comparison to other internally routed bars, with accute angles leading to binding
Get it if you're looking for a light, ultra stiff, low profile, racing bar with good looks, especially with Di2 or EPS, my Shimano PTFE cable sheathing got trashed during install due to aggressive routing angles.
Love wins over hate

I've used these bars for a few years now and LOVE them. The flatish top is brilliant as it allows you put your wrist in a comfortable position for you and not one the bar maker wanted as is the case with most flat topped bars. The drops are more of the same as they're more of a hybrid between traditional drops and ergo. This all means that your hands can easily find that comfort zone they deserve in either a sitting up or dropped position.
I ordered new ones for a new bike recently and found that 3T had decided to add internal cabling. Hate it! This is what happens when you attempt to improve perfection. It holds cables in place better than electrical tape but it's a pain in the rear to work with! OK, the pain is temporary and the comfort during long rides is worth it. All is good!
