The Cowbell 3 takes over as Salsa's budget friendly cyclocross handlebar, using a slightly updated compact bend for improved ergonomics with current shift/brake lever designs.

This bar is made from 6061-T6 double-butted aluminum for durability, weight savings and affordability. 12-degree flared ends, a short reach and shallow drop offer increased control through the roughest off-road racing conditions. An extra long 120mm top section provides plenty of space for handlebar mounted accessories and eases transitions from the hoods. Salsa has also added a single indentation along the front of the bar for clean brake cable routing.

The Cowbell 3 features a 31.8mm clamp diameter, 76mm reach and 126mm drop. Various widths. 301g (claimed weight, 44cm). Bead Blasted Black finish.

 

Width Measured: Center to Center (at lever position)

Great gravel handlebars!
by Anonymous

Bought a new gravel bike and inexplicably it came with raked 42 cm bars. How 2cm can make such a difference I do not know but they were awful. The next day ordered these and they are so. Much. Better! Perfect flair, 44cm, and Salsa chic. No rake either. Super happy with them, but that could also be because the ones they replaced were so bad. Got them the next day after ordering too! Of course I do live in Oregon though.

Second purchase of this handlebar now for carbon gravel grinder after using on my steel winterfenderedtraineradventurecommutergravel bike . I found the subtle flair to be great for drop riding in a more upright position. Does not give the weird brifter angle from wider flared bars (cowchipperwoodchipper) hand positions are familiar and comfortable. Ordered same size width as my regular endurance road bike.

Game changer for my ride...

I absolutely love these bars. I have wide shoulders and the drop profile of these bars fits me perfectly. The outward cant of the drops is subtle enough to not feel non-roadie (or look awkward). If I had to some up my review of this bar with one word, it would be ergonomic.

Cool bars
by SmcMason

Great price on CX bars with character. I like the shallow drop with flared ends. My brifters angle out where I have them mounted, and I like the different look. It's comfortable, and I get many compliments on the appearance.

Why bother with the Cowbell 2?

This thing has the same great shape as the Cowbell 2 at a fraction of the price. Feels great in my hands and I love having wide bars for cross top levers.
