2012 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Aerobars

Profile Design T2 Cobra $200

The T2 Cobra has been a popular bar for years, but Profile Design made a key change to its 2012 model. Whether or not it’s an improvement might depend on your needs. Previous versions of the bar featured moveable arm pads, allowing for a wide range of adjustment that gave athletes the option to shorten the reach to their bars dramatically. The new design sacrifices this huge range of adjustment, but dramatically simplifies the bar and ensures the pads stay clamped in their intended position. Profile-design.com
