Syntace have been refining their clip-on design for 15 years, so it’s no surprise this unique setup is pretty much perfect. The C3’s Double Helix Bend extensions give several natural-feeling hand positions. They also curve round to carry the sideways-sliding arm rests.
There’s no fore/aft adjustment – instead you choose a size based on forearm length. Deep but firm Lycra-covered pads sit on carefully shaped, drooped-lip ‘Bio Wing’ cups, which are superbly comfortable and secure without being restrictive.
Premium detailing includes anti-crush O-rings on the welded clamps, threaded computer mounts, cable routing protection and optional high-rise spacers. Weight is low, and the price more than fair too.
