This crescent-shaped wing has been used to devastating effect by racing legends like Fabian Cancellara and Carlos Sastre, and it's easy to see why.
Its amazing aerodynamics are obvious as soon as you look at the wafer-thin teardrop wing, super-shallow horns, blade-like brake levers and streamlined clamp zone.
The thin bar isn't overly flexy, and the tiny horns are more finger than hand grips. The straight extensions share their clamps with the broad, rounded armrests, which gives a consistent connection between hand and arm contact points - ideal for flat forearm streamlining.
However, adjustment is limited to changeable spacers under the teardrop clamp pontoons and four different width settings on the armrests.
While weight is high at 942g – even for a bar with integrated brakes – you can't fault the aero advantage if you're a fast enough rider to make the investment worthwhile.
