New 3T Aerobars Get Lighter, Narrower & Di2 Compatible

new 3T Ventus II carbon fiber aero handlebars

3T has just unveiled two revised aerobars, the Ventus II and ultra narrow Brezza Nano.

The Ventus II gets 15% lighter than the original. The revised base bar has shaped recesses for the arm rests to keep them from rotating out of line, and the handhold shape is modified and gets new grips to prevent slip.

The Brezza Nano, shown behind the jump, is just 30cm wide and is aimed at triathletes who typically don’t get out of the aero position after exiting T1. 3T’s engineers found that the narrower width was more aero (obviously) and that any extra width normally helpful for leverage when cranking out of the saddle simply wasn’t necessary in triathlon applications. The result is a lighter, more aero bar that’s purpose built.

UPDATE: Just got pricing and weights:

  • Weights: Ventus II 730g; Brezza Nano 430g
  • Prices: Ventus II LTD from $1.199,99; Brezza Nano LTD from $899,99

Both bars get wiring ports to add Di2 compatibility, too.

Perfect for hipster triathletes.

If you can’t provide specs like weight, availability, and price maybe you should wait to publish your “article”.

@Denny your comment doesn’t make a g** d*** lick of sense. Did a hipster wrong you at some point in your life?

@Brian Next time they should run it by you first before they post an article.

Here’s how it should have been written:

“In space or on the ground, the 3T Ventus II demolishes the droid army. In attack ship mode, this heavily armed vehicle pummels the enemy with laser cannon fire. It lands in the center of the battle and converts to an armored attack base with a recon fighter. Clone trooper forces operate the attack ship and armored base, using this powerful weapon to bring the battle right to the droid army!

The future of the galaxy is in your hands – are you ready?

Question though: Where do the action figures go?

The comments on Bike Rumor have really gone downhill (pun sort of intended) over the past 3-6 months. Still good comments being made, but they’re surrounded by lots of pointless drivel like those here. I think the Volagi and road disc brake posts attracted trolls from the Pinkbike forums.

Like the post you just made? What’s a Pink Bike forums?

I realize the irony of my own statement, thankyou. I had few options for making my comment, so there you go.
