The 3T Ergoterra Team Carbon Cyclocross Handlebar is a wide drop bar for cyclocross, with flared drops for elbow clearance on rough ground, and a reinforced central section for crosstop levers. It has the same compact drop and reach as Ergosum, tailored to provide more control over technical terrain. The view from above, you’ll see the drops angle outwards by 6 degrees. The 42cm is measured at the centre of the hoods as it is 45cm at the drops. (44cm model, 47 cm). The compound-curved bends preserve the vertical alignment of brake/shifter levers at their mounting point, so outward flare does not alter shifters’ ergonomics.
