ERGONOVA sets a new standard in comfort riding. The top of the bar is egg-shaped in section, the longer radius provides a wider top surface for the hands. The egg shape rolls through 180 degrees at the bend into the forward extension, placing the palms naturally onto the brake hoods and ergonomic drops.
3T developed this compact new shape in close consultation with pro and leisure riders, to provide day-long comfort on the bike. ERGONOVA is also available in a 38 cm width, making it ideal for smaller riders. ERGONOVA PRO is built of triple-butted Al 7075 T6 and is suitable for most types of clip-on bars.
Please note: 3T measure their handlebars center-to-center, with the bar dimension taken at the bar ends or hoods. However for the Ergonova the drops flair outwards, so the bar is nominally 20mm narrower at the hoods - this means a 42cm Ergonova measures 40cm at the hoods.

The Ergonova has been one of the most popular shapes offered by 3T. The shape of this alloy version is slightly different, but the reach and drop are the same. A great product at a very low price point.
I bought these to replace a Deda Newton Shallow bar that I used last season. I liked the Newton in some ways, but I found that it was painful to use the drops in any other position than the very end, because the curve compressed my hand too much if I moved up toward the levers. But with the Ergonova, I have everything I liked about the Newton, with the added benefit of more comfortable positions in the drops, and the ovalized tops offer a comfortable rest with a secure grip and minimal pressure points. Overall, it feels very stiff and secure, but the shape is very comfortable. After experimenting with everything from traditional deep drops, traditional shallow drops, and the older-style ergo drops with the bulge below the levers, I finally own some handlebars that do do not require me to put up with some annoying position or characteristic. Very pleased.
I was previously running a 3T Rotundo and wanted to try something more 'modern' after getting a bit tired of not being able to reach the drops too easily due to my small hands. The bend makes it easy to set up shifters such that you get a flat transition to the hoods and are able to reach for the brakes easily when in the drops if you have small hands. The fattened top part is nice for resting your hands on during climbs.
Note that the measurements on these bars are from c-c in the drops, and that they flare inwards at the bend/hoods. If you get a 42cm, it will be such in the drops but will be around 40cm at the hoods.
