Profile Design T1+ Clip-On Aerobars $139.99
Sent from the future to make you better.
If you require no-nonsense extensions that simply work, look no further than the Profile Design T1+ Clip-On TT Bars. This is a lighter, simpler, easier-to-adjust version of Profile's old Stryke clip-on setup, which itself was lighter, simpler, and more adjustable than its predecessors. Their predecessors were also the leaders of their respective zeitgeists, which is understandable considering that Profile got in on the ground floor of clip-on aero bars in the late 1980s. In fact, it was the first company that had adjustable-length extensions. Now, for the T1+, the bars are 6061 aluminum tubes that are bent like a ski into a graduated 'L-shape' that's easy on your wrists. And since the extensions are round in shape, they're able to be rotated in the clamp, as well as fore and aft, making it easy to find a spot that's both fast and comfortable.
The handlebar clamps, forged from 6061 aluminum, tighten to the bars separately from the extensions. These clamps are separate from the armrests, so you're able to first determine the width that you're comfortable riding with. Afterwards, you set the length of the extensions, and then adjust the armrests to your desired position. And since the armrest clamp is round and clamps onto a round tube, you're able to adjust the cant of the armrests. Essentially, this provides some height adjustment, while also allowing you the opportunity to have the armrests tilted either inward or outward. For those who prefer a narrow position, having the armrests tilted upward toward the stem provides a secure feeling. And for those who like a wider position, we recommend lowering the armrests and tilting them outward. This way, it's easier to move in and out of the armrests.
J2 brackets let you set the F-19 armrests at two different widths, as well as to adjust the angle of the rests and to set three fore and aft positions. People who prefer a wider position often like to rotate the rests so that they're cradling and guiding their forearm in the direction of the extension. Included with the F-19 armrests are 12mm spacers, which allow height adjustments of the armrests. The pads on the armrests attach via hook-and-loop closures. This allows you easy access to the two bolts that hold each armrest to its respective bracket. It also means that the pads are easily removable for either hand or machine washing.
