No longer listed on the 3T website, doesn't seem to be replaced directly by anything matching. Have I missed something?

I noticed the same thing some days ago and asked them, but they don't respond!
On the Italian version of the website Ergonova still exist.

Today I receive an email form 3T

"Dear customer,
Thanks for your enquiry.

From this year the name of the handlebar changed to Ernova.
Kind regards "

Meanwhile my 38 size Ergonova LTD comes at 162g :shock:

The Ergonova is/was my go-to bar shape! Meanwhile, the name "Ernova" produces zero hits on the 3T site. Honestly, I am losing patience with 3T lately. I was a big fan of their stuff, but stem design changes, the newer posts, absurd long reach bars, discontinuing the Ergonova... I am all for design changes, when they makes sense and result in improvement, but I have the impresssion that once 3T gets something right, they move on. And so will I.

New name makes more sense, it's not exactly an ergo shape bar. Got a Zero25 post on backorder which I'm looking forward to checking out too

Sure you can still find the bars in plenty of places for sale, but at this point there's zero mention of the new Ernova in their online product listing and Ergonova has been removed.

However the link above is for the new Ernova bars and is on the 3T online store (although out of stock), so not sure what you mean by it not being listed/zero mention.

Well s$&t! Looked at the link too quickly. So, bar is same, changed name, no mention of it other than a listing in the store. The main site does not show it (yet, I asssume). Odd. I am comforted that it is still available, but going back to my former comment, 3T designs lately have left me cold. They're slipping in my estimation. I've returned a few items in the last year that just did not sit well. (Difflock saddle clamp system is hit or miss with carbon railed saddled. The single bolt stem clamp was just too scary...)

But again, thanks for pointing out the store link, glad I can still get those bars if needed. Did they need to change the name?

The Ernova is now appearing on the 3T website. Specs appear to be the same as the previous Ergonova.
I do not like the single bolt steerer clamp design of the ARX II stem. The two bolt steerer clamp is still available on the carbon ARX LTD stem.

It's a big bolt though.

Got my Zero25 seat post, looks pretty good. Takes both oval and round rails, reversible head for either 25mm or zero offset.

A bit off topic but couldn't find another thread.

What bolt is the single bolt in the Arx II stem? I need to replace it and have the four bolts in front but not the single one for steerer clamping.
I can see its t30, approx. 30mm long and 6.9mm width at threads.

Thanks in advance

It is a single M7 bolt according to the 3T website.
