Ergosum is shallower than traditional drop bars, with a little more reach. 3T created the bend to fit the latest brake-shifter levers. The bend's tight radius at the brake lever mounts makes it easy to accurately adjust the reach and angle of the handhold. With so many riders now spending more time on the hoods, this shape has become the modern race standard. Ergosum Pro is a well-balanced, triple-butted alloy racing bar at a keen price.
