Profile Design T2+ aero bar review£99.99

Popular all-rounder

BikeRadar score3/5

A classic bar that we see time and again on complete bikes, the T2+ is a widely adjustable, easy to use all-rounder, as long as you don’t want to get in a position that’s super-low.

The gently snaked S-shaped alloy extensions are a great shape for full-tuck blasting or half-tuck climbing and they’re slotted for semi-internal gear routing.

There are loads of bridge and other accessories for the Profile range, as well as carbon extension versions for £149.99. Separate arm rest and bar clamps with three different arm rest positions give you a wide range of adjustment for great comfort.

The deeply cushioned pads have pockets, and Velcro straps on the back for easy removal and cleaning. Trimming off excess extension length behind the clamps is essential to stop it from clobbering your knees when you’re climbing though.

Freelance Writer, UK
Guy started filling his brain with cycle stats and steaming up bike shop windows back in 1980. He worked the other side of those windows from '89 while getting a degree in “describing broken things covered in mud" (archaeology). Dug historical holes in the ground through the early '90s, then became a pro bike tester in '97. Guy has ridden thousands of bikes and even more components the world over since then and can remember them all in vivid, haunting detail. Can't remember where the car keys are, though.
