The draw: Maximum adjustability

If you like to tinker with your fit or need a big stack height boost to get comfy in the aero position, this bar offers a solution. It has an adjustable range wider than any of the other integrated bars in this review. While overall adjustability is vast, some riders will struggle to get the arm pad width just right—this bar is best suited for riders with narrow or flexible shoulders. The extensions create a fantastic wrist position, with just the right amount of tension to help anchor the upper body without any strain.
