A perfect match for the Strada frame, the AeroNova handlebar combines an aero profile with an unusual feature: comfort. While most aero dropbars sacrifice in ergonomics, the AeroNova’s cross section and corner wing relief makes it ideal for long efforts and even the bar of choice for some speed-obsessed gravel riders (for mere mortals, the SuperGhiaia is a better choice there).

DROP GRIP: The gradual change in curvature makes the grips comfortable for hands of all sizes, while the upper corner aligns all modern shift/brake levers. The longer reach provides a more aero position (or use a shorter stem for a standard position).
CORNER WING RELIEF: This dip in the wing just before the grip acts as a secondary hood position. In combination with the longer reach you can place your hands here for a standard body position or go forward into the hood for an extended position.
CENTER WING: The wing’s cross section is aerodynamic yet comfortable, provided you are accustomed to grip with your thumb parallel to your index finger. If you prefer to grip the center section with your thumb under the bar, the SuperErgo is your best choice.
