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) 

Drop/Reach: 126mm/76mm 

Material: 6061-T6

Cool bars

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.
