Our review

Drab pads, but otherwise beautifully made, top-performing, light, space-saving clip-ons

HED only do aero, and as the classic feature loaded Clip Lite proves, they do it very well if you can afford them.

There’s a choice of three carbon extensions: ‘shallow S’ (seen here), an upswept ‘lazy S’ and the angular ‘kick’ set (all £80 separately).

Beautiful crisply machined scalloped sockets hold the extensions level with the base bars for a usefully low- tucked position. Be careful fitting tip shifters into the carbon tips though.

Hinged arms mean you can flip the arm rests up to maximise bar top space on climbs, while spring washers stop them rattling when not in use.

Eight bolt holes give four different fine-tuned position options and there are 12 and 24mm riser kits available too. Wafer-thin carbon-fibre rests shave grams and the dual density pads are comfortable, if not exactly flashy.
