When you're time trialing, you're there to lay it all on the line. And when you're pushing your body to the edge of your physical limits, it's not unreasonable to expect the same of your equipment. 3T has been outfitting professionals for long enough to know this, and the Brezza II Team Aerobar is the bar the Italian masterminds built specifically for their pro team riders. Built almost entirely from carbon fiber, and weighing in at a svelte 510g, this Di2-ready handlebar offers a staggering amount of adjustment, so you're able to get comfortable. You know, at least until it's time to put yourself in the pain cave.
The Brezza II is 3T's professional-level offering, so, as you'd expect, every last possible advantage has been pursued. Accordingly, the base bar, extensions, and elbow rests have all been artfully sculpted out of carbon fiber. The carbon-fiber forearm cradles can be set in any of four positions. They move in four increments of 12.78mm, out to 108.34mm. If you put the armrests directly on the bar, the top of the armrest pad is 35mm above the bar. The armrests can be raised 10, 20, or 30mm with the included spacers. There's even an accessory 60mm riser for people who want their base bar much lower than their extensions. The extensions are 350mm long and can be cut down to suit your preference. The range of adjustment is 265mm at the longest to 172mm at the shortest. However, should you find that the stock S-bend extensions are not to your tastes, 3T offers aftermarket extensions in both straight and ski bend.
The bars come in one width, 40cm, on the assumption that you want a narrow position even when you're off the armrests. The drop of the base bar is 0mm and the reach is 160mm. The bars are threaded for internal routing of brake cables and the hand rest can take any 19mm diameter external clamp or plug-style bar-end brake lever.
The Brezza II is built to accept internal Di2 wiring. At 510 grams, the Brezza II is downright feathery. 3T's extensive experience outfitting Pro Tour teams results in a bar that's certified UCI legal, and very, very fast.
The 3T Brezza II Team Aerobar is available in an aerodynamic 40cm width, and in the color Stealth.
