Syntace C6

$700, Syntaceusa.com
The draw: Hyper-comfy grip

This brand has been around for a long time and is known for highly functional and comfortable aerobars. Syntance’s own extension shape, called the Double Helix, is featured in carbon on this bar and it lays the bars naturally into the rider’s palms. According to Syntace, the fairing between the extensions streamlines airflow by splitting air above and below the bars. It also makes the structure very rigid and doubles as a bottle mount or storage box. The bar is available in three sizes to match riders with different forearm lengths, although adjustment options are limited. It pairs very nicely with Syntace’s CX Stratos base bar ($300).
