Pro Missile EVO

This bar from Shimano’s component brand has been around for awhile, but a new fit kit makes it much more adaptable than in the past. Simple pedestalling riser spacers can be stacked beneath the extensions or between the extensions and the elbow cups to dramatically lift the rider’s aero position without moving the basebar. This method of spacing the pads can be more aerodynamically efficient than using steerer tube spacers to prop the entire aerobar. It also elevates the tallest possible aerobar position to achieve a fit that is more conservative than a bike would otherwise allow. The same kit allows the Missile clip-on to pedestal as well.
