Triathlon handlebars & extensions - pure aerodynamics
Triathlon handlebars and the corresponding attachments provide the cyclist with an aerodynamic position that's as stretched out as possible - you "lie" on your bike, so to speak. This equals less air resistance and more speed! Triathlon handlebars, often also called aero handlebars, usually consist of the actual handlebars as well as corresponding attachments to rest the forearms on. Both parts are available in a wide variety of designs, which you can choose according to personal preferences. The handlebar shapes range from classic racing bike handlebars to forward-curved 'bullhorn' handlebars. Most aero extensions can be added to regular road bike handlebars.
