Setting Up A Road Bike For Triathlon

Syntace C3 Alloy

The draw: Sublimely ergonomic grip

Don’t let the lack of carbon fool you—these bars are the lightest clip-on in this review. The C3 features what Syntace calls a “Double Helix” extension bend, which we found to create a more comfortable and ergonomic grip than the typical extension shapes. The bars feature wide, plush armrests that are easily adjustable in width by 50mm per armrest. Both the length of the extensions and pad reach distance are fixed, creating major fit adjustment limitations, but these aerobars are available in three different lengths.
