Aero-Bar Shape Conundrum

Postby Fell Runner » Thu Nov 15, 2012 21:31 pm

I am in my 40s average rider and looking at purchasing my first set of clip-on tri-bars shortly for two half ironman races I have in 2013.

I have narrowed my choice down to either Deda Parabolica Due, Uno and Zero or Profile T2+ Aerobar
(unless there are others to choose from).

Though I am a little confused about the shape of the bars and what advantages and disadvantages each offer, Straight, Slightly Curvier....

Also looking for comfort rather uncomfortable position over 50 miles can anyone offer some advice.
Thanks

You'd be better asking on the Tritalk forums than here.

I find straight put your wrist in an awkward position. Turned up is comfiest.
