Ergonova pro or team

So i am building up a new Cervelo s1 and need to order new bars, love my existing 3t ergonova pros on my other bike but feel that i should go for carbon bars up front to reduce some road buzz from the alu frame. FWIW I ride for pleasure around long ashton in bristol on poor roads on 30-50 milers. Does anyone have experience of riding the pros vs the team version. Or any other suggestions on shallow short carbon bars at around the 170 quid mark?

I used both the pro and team, and didn't really notice more comfort, just lighter.

+1. The team bars are a bit bulkier on the flat section of the bar as well.

i can confirm: no difference between pro/team in handling or comfort.
as said: team is much lighter.
optically i even prefer the pros white/black colour-scheme, because the team has this large red section, which not even matches the red of the arx-team stem. :(

Yep its annoying the reds do not match on the team bar and stems. This is ww after all though to i may go black stealth stem and red team bars. Should look tidy with the s1s black red colour scheme anyway.

I don't have experience of a comparison, but I do have a set of Nova Team 44cm that I don't use any more (I've switched to using a deeper drop bar)

I'm in London, PM me if you're interested.

Matt. :)

I use both - team on my personal bike and pro on my race bike ... I think a good question to ask yourself is do you think you're going to be hitting the pavement with the bike :)

You can also get the stealth models in team if you don't care for the red.
