3T has just announced its new SuperGhiaia handlebar, specifically designed for adventure, gravel and all-road riding. We've teamed up with them to give you lucky lot the chance to win a set of them, plus a matching Apto Team stem and a Zero25 seatpost worth a total of £525, so you can spruce up your bike for spring.
Gravel riding is much more than just rougher road riding and it brings a unique set of challenges for you and your kit. Getting the right finishing kit can make a big difference to comfort and control, which is why equipment tailored to the task is so important.
The SuperGhiaia bar is made to work just as well on rougher trails as paved paths, with a straight hood position promising on-road comfort plus a big flare on the drops for off-road control. We've got a set coming for full review soon, so we're keen to see if they live up to the promise.
All you have to do to enter is head to the form down below, follow the simple instructions, accept the T&Cs and you'll be entered into the draw. Of course, if you want to know exactly what you stand to get your hands on, then read on as 3T give you the lowdown on why this is a prize you'll definitely want to win.
"SuperGhiaia bar - Off the charts off-road fun!
We love mixed surface/adventure/gravel/all-road riding. So many names, yet none conveys how much fun it is. The SuperGhiaia is perfect for stringing together paved and unpaved sections, by providing comfort in all hand positions. The key? Combining a straight (not weirdly angled) hood position with an extreme flare for control in the drops. Perfect for your Exploro.
Drop Grip: The SuperGhiaia’s unique flare is size specific, optimized for smaller hands on the 40cm and for bigger hands on the 44cm bar. This makes them not only more comfortable, it also aligns the rider’s fingers better with the brake lever.
Corner Grip: More and more people ride extended periods of time with their hands in the corners, yet in ergonomic design this area never received any attention. Our new corner design improves comfort and creates a more secure grip.
Center grip: When we surveyed our customers about their desires for this new ergonomic bar, amateur and professionals alike pleaded with us not to change this area at all. It’s that comfortable. So we left it alone.

Apto TEAM stem - Create a Strong Connection
If you see a stem with blacked out logos in the pro peloton, it’s likely to be a 3T. Why? For the same reason, bike fitters love it - we make our stems available in a very wide range of lengths (70-150mm), angles (+/-6 & +/-17) and levels. The stem may not be the most exciting bike part, it is the crucial connection between frame and handlebars ensuring the bike handles well and your body is in the right position. The Apto continues 3T’s six decades of leadership in stem design, combining unparalleled functionality with Italian elegance.
Steerer Clamp: Double bolts (Titanium for the TEAM level) hold the steerer securely and provide redundancy for extra safety.
Reverse Faceplate bolts: These clean up the faceplate for a more elegant design, in particular in combination with our new drop bars.
Classic Rubber Logo: The 3D rubber logo is a nod to the iconic 3T stems of yesteryear. White or black lettering available.

Zero25 - Sleek and Versatile
At 3T we always to combine the best functionality with Italian style and design. The Zero25 is an excellent example, offering both a zero and 25mm offset built into the same seatpost without any of the bulkiness normally associated with extra adjustability. This means you can experiment with a wide range of saddle positions and once you have found your optimum, you still have the world’s most beautiful seatpost on your bike (if we may say so ourselves).
The crux of the Zero25 is in its sleek head. Clamped on the minimalist base is a left and right cup that offer a zero offset for a relatively forward saddle position. Switch the left cup to the right side and vice versa and you have a 25mm offset, perfect for a more rearward saddle position. In either position, the seatpost looks great and works great.
