If you want more speed, 2 areas are key: position and control. The Stratics TT bars optimize both, so you are sure to set new records!
The Stratics TT bars could be the best purchase you ever made in your quest for greater speed. You body position is key, much more than a new frame, wheels or electronic shifting. These bars are almost infinitely adjustable, so you become one with the bike for your best aerodynamics ever. Nobody is going to dispute this part of the equation.
The next largest part of the equation, and one that flies under the radar is control. If you are not able to use your bars effectively to keep a good line, and the bike wanders even a little, you can end up riding more distance, and taking longer to finish. The big upswept forearm supports deliver excellent control, and also provide the ability to rotate which is another key element in keeping a tighter profile. Look at the advantages you obtain in the Stratics bars:
Extensions rotate 360 degrees for your best hand position, and offer an ergonomic grip area to keep your hands from cramping on IM distances, etc.
Arm rests move fore-aft, side to side, and also rotate. Being able to rotate the arm supports lets you keep your hands closed in front while still being able to keep your shoulders and arms tighter for vastly improved aerodynamics- even more important for triathletes who typically have larger shoulders from swimming than cyclists. Those with smaller shoulders can bring the arm-pads closer to center for optimal fit with the inside pad mounting position.
50 mm of fore-aft adjustment on the extensions for excllent fit
- Brake cables route internally and exit at the back of the base bar
- Shift cables can be routed internally or externally
Standard 31.8 mm stem diameter allows you to mix/match stem length and rise to obtain your perfect position
- Super stiff base bar gives you excellent hand support and positioning for climbs as well as a full aero profile
UCI 3:1 compliant for use in bike racing as well as triathlon
While the Stratics bars will help you to dial in your perfect position to lower aerodynamic drag, the Stratics lets you improve your control and comfort, for time savings that is as impressive as a good aero position:
Arm supports are extra rigid, and they extend high onto the outside of the arm for exceptional steering control . A lot of bars use very small supports that simply don't allow you to put enough pressure on them to make direction changes while staying in your aero position. While most athtletes pay a lot of money to determine a good aero position, the Stratics bar optimizes your ability to stay aero and ride a clean line. If you are drifing off line, or need to come out of the aero position to make shallow turns, you are going to add back a lot of time over even a 40 k distance, much less a 70.3 or full Iron distance. Riding a clean line can save you more time than all the aerodynamics of your bike and accessories combined! Watch the care a pursuiter uses on the track in holding the line, and then multiply this by 100 for an Iron distance. A few seconds here, there, and after 112 miles, the Straitcs difference is minutes.
- Super stiff base bar for maximum power when you need to climb and corner so you don't waste watts when going all out
- The expanded grab area at end of extensions keeps your hands open and relaxed over longer distances, a huge comfort feature you won't even notice until about 40 miles in!
- High texture surfaces on the extensions and cow horns . You can leave as is for high girp, or wrap with Fat Wrap for exceptional cushionioning.
While there are a lot of aero bars on the market, the Stratics combination of exceptional adjustabily and features to imporove your on-bike performance are unequaled by anything in it's range. Performance is the key, and a set of Stratics TT bars could be the advantage you need.
