A new two-piece aerobar from the Italian component manufacturer offers an incredibly diverse fit range at a very low price. In Europe, the bar sells for €200, meaning the American price is likely to be somewhere in the range of $250 for the clip-on, basebar and riser kit. The 754-gram barset can be positioned with wide or narrow elbow pads, short or long reach length for the extensions and tall or low stack height. A short reach distance to the elbow pad is the only fit characteristic it cannot accommodate. The extensions are shaped in a way that minimizes stress on the wrist like an up-turned bar while giving the option to choke up on the extensions for more tension through the arms. The 40cm wide basebar has an aero shaped top section and upturned brake grip. For a high hand position, the extensions can be rotated upward. Other bars with this range of adjustment already exist, but this may be the cheapest bar with such a diverse range of fit options.
