2012 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Aerobars

Bontrager Race X Lite Carbon Clip-on $180

The Race X Lite bar is a reliable and adjustable clip-on perfectly suited as a road bike add-on or part of a dedicated tri bike. It allows for plenty of adjustment to extension length and width, as well as pad placement. The carbon extensions lighten up the bar, and the steep upsweep at the end of the bar creates a comfortable hand position for athletes looking to adopt an aerodynamic high hand position. Internal cable routing provides a clean finish, and the clamping mechanism is simple but secure. Bontrager.com
