    3T Scatto Sprint Bars

    What is everyone's experience with these bars?



    Should I get the 35 or 37 version?

    I have no personal experience using them, but they're the Olympic standard, so I assume they're kinda alright.

    The 35's have 2cm less drop, at 128mm.

    I rode a buddies bike with these on. Personally it felt like compact narrow drops.

    They are pretty awesome. They eliminate the need for a rise stem to make deep drop bars tolerable. Now your stem can be flat.

    They are slightly (but very noticeably) more narrow than standard 38-40cm sprint bars. It seems that people who try them like them.

    But, it comes down to personal preference.

    I've seen sprinters and endurance riders use them. Here is Sarah Hammer using them in one of the Olympic Omnium events:

    Like all high end bars, there is nothing stucturally wrong with them. So the questions become do they fit(shape and riding style) you, are the comfortable to you, and are they worth the price?

    Looks like the Aussie behind Hammer is using them too.

    They seem to be popular among the women enduros as they come in such narrow widths.

    You are probably right. The AUS team were one of the first (if not *the* first) teams to use them:

    The aussies have some sort of hook up with 3t. The sphynix bars were designed with the help of Cameron Meyer.

    Power meter head unit. You're not allowed to have any computers on your bars in track events. Coaches etc still want numbers so that's the kind of clunky but totally legal work around.

    The rule is a little more detailed than not allowed on your bars. You are not allowed to have a visible screen. The idea is if you have a screen you will be able to pace your self artificially, and it would take away a part of the racing.

    I don't find the power meter that helpful road racing. Either you can stay with the surges or you can't. Post race analysis though is a different matter.

    For road ITT's I find it invaluable!
