I recently got the Superergo (carbon) 380mm's (C-C) installed. Was on 420mm before. Great upgrade and very happy I went down this path. So far the experience has been great, for me they're narrower (after a bikefit recommendation) which has been great but also the shape is very comfortable. Done a few long rides (>120km) on them now and zero numb hands and less achy shoulders. Had my mechanic change them as I am running hydro and Di2 bar end box and he would be better suited to get a good result rather than me messing it up. He's not a fan of the internals of any 3T but he got it done and looking great.
I haven't used a lot of other bars so don't have a lot to compare with but I am def not disappointed at all and super happy with getting this installed.
Only "downside" is that there is less room for a computer-mount; a standard Garmin mount doesn't fit for me so using a thinner K-edge (pictures don't have a mount installed yet)
Hiya VvM,

I'm in the process of trying to do the Di2 install in the same bars, but seems to be struggling to get past what appears to be a blockage at the bend just below the levers.
Any idea of how you mechanic managed to get around this ? It will be to get the two wires from the H/Bar junction box to the levers.

Any assistance from you or others would be brilliant, as otherwise I'll need to return them and try something else !!

Well, some more thought, trials, desperation and different methods finally yielded results :thumbup:

All good, but a bit of a PITA

Glad you got it sorted. According to my mechanic a few F-bombs, a sh*tload of patience and perseverance is required... Sounds like you went through the same experience. Been using the bars for a few months now and still super happy with them. Brilliant in fact.

Thinking about getting these bars. I have been using FSA Wing Pro aluminum for a very long time.
Love the shape but looking to cut some weight and maybe add some vibration damping.
These look similar in shape to the Wing Pro with slightly flat tops and the price is reasonable.
Any recent feedback on these?

I love mine! So much so, that new bikes with proprietary stems and bars hold little appeal for me. I was tempted to by another one for backup but spent the money on a guitar instead!

I'm on the dark side! I've got a PRS McCarty 594 among others. Strat, Ibanez, Yamaha, etc. Been eyeballing something with P90s, but the only things I can find that I like are as much as a new Canyon Ultimate! Decisions, decisions! :mrgreen:

Are those the same bars? Because everywhere I look it says 195g for 38.

I'm guessing they have good tools for that kind of job but those bars must still be tricky. I have been using this on a few bars which helped a lot. Zipp SL 70 Aero, Vision Metron 4D flat and the new Vision Metron aero.

3T has removed team version whose weight was 195g for 38, and downgraded LTD products to team layup.

So there are no more of the really light version which has been discussed in this thread? If I am understanding correctly.
