Profile Design T4+ Clip-On Aerobars $139.99
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.

What's the best way to determine what length Aero bar you should use?
There aren't a lot of different options for length in Aero bars. If you find that you need to shorten them, you can cut them down. However, there really aren't length differences.
The main difference that you'll find is the type/degree of rise of the bar.
Please feel free to reach out if you'd like to discuss some options for aero bars!
Let them laugh.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
There are armies of Freds combing your local cycling thoroughfares, right now, just looking for triathletes with clip-on bars to later make fun of while showing off their carefully cultivated tan lines in their too-short casual shorts at the coffee shop next the local bike shop that they don't frequent because they buy everything online through a discount retailer based out of Germany that doesn't include a single word of English on its website. These are despicable characters. Let them laugh, and get on with your brick workouts in aero comfort. After all, you're actually training for something more strenuous than being glared at by the barista for buying a $4 latte with a credit card.
