I'm building up my Cervelo R3 that was freshly painted matte black with gloss black logo's (yes R5ca copycat with R3 logos). I'm looking to give it that full on stealth look and the only thing I have yet to purchase is a full cockpit. Aside from the Zipp "Beyond Black" bars/stem/seatpost who else makes anything with no/stealth logos? I do like the Zipp stuff, and their short and shallow bars are great for my tiny arms, but I'd just like to see if anyone has any comparable options.

3T stealth stem and bars are great. they'll match with the matte/gloss black combo

I installed a Syntace F109 stem and Bontrager Race Lite VR handlebar. Both are aluminium and have logos that can be easily removed with aceton.
They weigh 120 and 235 grams and are super stiff.

Deda just released a matte black with black logo stem and bar with RHM (very similar to the zipp shallow drop) they call it the Superleggero series

Ritchie have released some super logic in Matt black. The stem looks particularly nice in my opinion.

On closer inspection, think it may have a touch of red in it!
