Get your tri on.
Not every cyclist or triathlete wants a full-carbon base bar with carbon extensions. Some prefer to use clip-on extensions with their drop bars for more versatility in hand positions, or to make climbing, and out of the saddle riding a little more comfortable. Profile Design's T4 Plus Clip-On TT Bars are an economical solution to make your road bike more aerodynamic.
Profile Design's T4 Plus clip-on TT bars were constructed from 6061-T6 aluminum, a lightweight and durable alloy. And while they may not carry that certain "bling factor" of a carbon weave, they're actually lighter (by over 150g) than their T4 carbon counterpart.
In terms of shape, they feature a traditional ski-bend shape with a rather shallow bend. Accordingly, this shape keeps the wrists and forearms aligned, which in turn, increases comfort for long hours on the bars. This shape also make these the perfect bars for the beginner to intermediate triathlete who rides a road bike, but needs to get their position as aerodynamic as possible when they are riding against the clock.
The T4 Plus includes Profile's J2 brackets. These forged brackets easily adjust to customize the length, width, and rotation of the armrests. The injection molded F-19 armrests are also finished with an EVA-molded pad for long days stretched out over the road.
The Profile Design T4 Plus Clip-On TT bars fit both 31.8mm and 26.0mm bars (with the included shim). They tip the scales around 469 grams and are available with a ski-bend and in the color Black.
