  • The stiffest handlepost on the market — 3D forged from a single piece of aluminum
  • Lets you customize your riding position by changing height (290mm or 350mm) and angle (6° or 12°)
  • The T-Bar requires the use of the VRO 47 or Andros stems as well as the Kinetix Pro Handlebar , Kinetix Pro X handlebar and drop bars
  • Fits most Tern bikes except Link A7, B7, C7 and Joe-series

The Tern Physis has quickly built a reputation as the stiffest folding handlepost on the market, but the Physis 3D takes it up a notch with 3D forging technology. That makes a Physis 3D T-Bar handlepost one of the best upgrades for your bike.

Here’s why you should upgrade:

Upgrading your handlepost lets you customize your ride by change of the height and angle of the handlepost. Choose between heights of 290 mm and 350 mm and 6° and 12° of angle.

The Tern Physis 3D T-Bar handlepost is compatible with the Tern Andros and Syntace VRO 47  stems – not to mention the terrific Valo lights. The Tern Andros and Syntace VRO give you unmatched flexibility to adjust your riding position and the Tern Valo 2  is the best integrated light system going.

If you have one of the below Link, Verge, Node, Castro and Swoop models, you can consider switching to a Physis T-Bar Handlepost.

Link: C8, Uno (D1), D7i, D8, D16, D24, N8, P9
Verge: Duo, P9, P18, P20
Node: D8, D7i
Castro: D8
Swoop: Duo, D7i

If you already have a Physis 2D T-bar handlepost, switching to a Physis 3D will give you even more stifness.

About Handlepost Height and Angle

Use handlepost height to tailor your ride. A taller handlepost will give you a more upright riding position and is recommended for taller riders. A shorter handlepost lets you create a more aggressive riding position for going fast.

The angle of the handlepost refers to the degrees from the angle of the steer tube. A 12° handlepost elongates the cockpit by moving the bars further away. A 6° angle keeps the bars closer.

About the Physis 3D Handlepost

The Physis 3D is forged from a single piece of aluminum. Only a small handful of factories around the world can 3D forge such a complicated, large piece. Welds are eliminated and material distribution optimized for strength. The result is a handlepost that is 2 1/2 times as strong as the original benchmark on rigorous EN tests.

Note: The Physis 3D handlepost should be used only with the original Syntace VRO 47 or the Tern Andros as well as the Kinetix Pro Handlebar. If you want to install a different stem or handlebar, please consult with an authorized Tern dealer.

    I have a Link D8 and I’m quite tall (1.88 m). While the standard handlepost set-up is reasonably comfortable, the shorter handlepost (with the ESSENTIAL Syntace stem + Kinetix bars – see Ligaya’s review) has transformed the feel of my bike by allowing me to lean further forward. The system is well-made and easy to install. The only reservation I have is the cost, but the overall benefit well justifies it!

    (verified owner):

    pros: solid and well designed; very easy to install, took only about 10 mins; shipping is fast.
    cons: not light. but still acceptable given by a very solid riding experience.

    overall satisfied, and highly recommend.
    PS: flat handle bar fits better with 12 degree ones.

    (verified owner):

    Great to have the option for a shorter handlpost for a shorty like me. The product description should emphasize (but doesn’t very clearly) that you will NEED either the Andros or Syntace stems to use with the original Tern handlebar. Without knowing this, I am lucky that I did order the Andros as well, otherwise I would have had to wait, and pay for, another purchase and delivery.
