The de­tail

Cyclist - - Canyon | Bikes -

As one of the first parts of the bike to ‘see’ wind, the han­dle­bars and stem are a key area to clean up to re­duce aero drag – some aero­dy­nam­i­cists claim the cock­pit is re­spon­si­ble for up to 15% of a bike’s to­tal drag. They’re now be­com­ing more com­mon­place, but Canyon was one of the first to in­tro­duce a one-piece bar/stem combo on its road bikes and claims its wing-shaped H11 Ae­ro­cock­pit re­duces drag by 5.5 watts com­pared to its stan­dard han­dle­bar and stem. Aero-shaped spac­ers en­able some height ad­just­ment but also help the stem to blend with the aero head tube and top tube, com­plet­ing a front-end set-up whose slick per­for­mance matches its looks.
