2012 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Aerobars

Syntace C3 and Stratos CX $493

Despite the aluminum extensions, the C3 and Stratos CX basebar create one of the lightest cockpits available. The C3’s uniquely shaped extensions allow for a neutral wrist position, something that long-course triathletes especially should appreciate. The arm pads, which are positioned to the rear of the basebar, have just the right amount of cushioning and cup the forearm nicely. Syntace.com
