ROTUNDO is a triple-butted Al 7075 T6 bar with a traditional, medium-deep, round drop bend. But while the shape is traditional, the ROTUNDO PRO is ultra-modern. At 245 g it is one of the lightest alloy bars in this shape, yet also one of the strongest. The past 30 years have seen a wide variety of new drop bar shapes, but many pros still ride with this bend, perfected by 3T in the 1980s. The shape endures because of its control and handling. ROTUNDO PRO blends tradition and innovation in the perfect package for the value-conscious rider.
PRO offers an ideal balance to riders who insist on top-class performance at the keenest price. This group typically includes many amateurs who purchase their own equipment. PRO components often employ traditional materials such as Al 7075 and Al 6061 alloys to contain fabrication costs. But like all 3T products, they benefit from the 3T Intelligent Production Lifecycle, assuring right-first-time design and quality, at prices that meet the needs of today’s discriminating bike riders. Count on PRO components to perform to the highest levels.

Was reading the overall reviews on this, and decide to swap my stock handlebars for this. It works amazing, it is light and responsive. It has a very classic race geometry, and it is comfortable for me at least to go on the drops most of the time
Reasonably price for it as well

If your wishing your bike was a little longer and a little lower give these a try. I love the difference between riding on the hoods and a slightly longer drop to the er, drops. Personally I find the long straight drops way nicer to ride on than a more ergonomic bar.The downside is the brakes and shifters to appear to be further away simply because you knuckles are facing the floor as opposed to slight forward using an ergo bar. These bars can be made to flex if used in anger but the flip side is they do a great job of isolating you from road buzz. I'll be using them on all my future bikes for sure.
