Syntace C6

A new aerobar from Sytance is a very rare occurrence. Just nine year ago, they dominated the Kona count as the most popular bar at Ironman World Championship. Since then, they’ve fallen into obscurity. This is the fourth version of their C series aerobar, and it features a twisted extensions shape that looks needlessly complicated, but is actually quite ergonomic because it puts a comfortable amount of tension through the wrists without torquing them out of natural alignment. The extensions are carbon and cannot be adjusted in length. The pad reach length can only be changed by flipping the elbow pads, meaning it has just two stack and reach setup options. While most aerobars, including the other three in this article, are becoming increasingly adjustable, the new Syntace C6 opts for a cleaner aesthetic but lacks adjustability.
