If you want more speed, 2 areas are a must: A great position, and great control. And while we are at it, less weight is always great. In a world that loves to talk about marginal gains, the Stratics TT package delivers time savings in chunks of minutes, not seconds! And it was noted again in a national tri publication that a good position delivers far more time savings than the slickest, sleekest $8,000 aero frame- like preaching to the choir here !
The topic that we don't see discussed on the Slowtwich forum is how much time you can save by simply riding a good line. Everyone has seen athletes on the bike wandering back and forth a little. Over the course of a 70.3 or full 112 miles, you can end up riding a lot of extra distance that can add up to minutes. How significant is this? If you barely improve your line through less wandering, say 25 feet a mile -or 25/5280=.0047 % -less than 1% , this 25 foot per mile over a full IM distance of 112 miles is 2800 feet - over a half mile. Plus you have time saving benefits of a top aerodynamic position, as the Stratics is very versatile, offering exceptional positioning adaptability.
The Stratics TT bars feature specially designed arm supports for added control, along with exceptional positioning. The large wing that rises up on the arm support is worth it's weight in gold when it comes your control by giving the rider the ability to steer and pressure the bar with their forearms. The big support platform provides you with exceptional pressure distribution.
Now when you order your TT bars, we are going to add in over $100 in extra goodies to make your life faster-and easier. We will now include a set of the Sampson ergonomically designed TT1 brake levers, a set of stainless steel brake cables, and the Sampson between the arms bottle mount platform, with an EZ Grip cage
Check out all the features of the Stratics bars, and get rocking ! The only thing you have to loose is weight, and time !
Extensions rotate 360 degrees for your best hand position
Forward sweep on the base bar provides extra clearance for your knees
Base bar features 3:1 aerodynamic shaping, UCI legal
Extensions feature an expanded palm support area for exceptional hand comfort and control, keeping your hands open and relaxed over longer duration events
Anti-slip textured grip paint is applied to the extensions and on the base bar behind the brake levers so you can elect to save a couple of watts on race day, or simply tape over it for comfort ( Fat Wrap is great for this as it leaves no residue on the bars !)
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 proper fit
- Brake cables route internally and exit at the back of the base bar
- Shift cables can be routed internally or externally, work great with the new AXS groups from Sram . Di2 requires external wire placement at present.
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 excellent positioning for climbs as well as a full aero profile
Meets UCI regulations for both road racing and ITU 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
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.
