Ergonova Team bar/Integra Team stem (13)
3T’s Ergonova shape is quite possibly our current favourite from any brand. The smoothly flattened top flows into an expanding-radius compact drop that suits hands big or small. The tight transition into the drop offers plenty of wrist clearance, too. We honestly can’t think of anything we’d change to improve it.
The combo stem is the all-alloy version of the brilliant carbon Integra. If you’re a Garmin user, the combo mount is brilliant, though the stem carries a lot of extra weight compared to the bar.
The smart, hollow construction means you can run cables through the stem and hide a Di2 box within it as well. On the plus side, the boxy construction makes it massively stiff and a good complement to the wonderful bar.
