220 Triathlon Magazine - - Feature / Speed On A Budget -

£40.00 A six-grand triathlon bike might mean curves, con­ceal­ment of ca­bles and cash, but a set of £40 aer­o­bars clipped onto your ex­ist­ing road bike saves you far more time per pound (ster­ling not chub). Alu­minium num­bers are the cheap­est; car­bon adds cost but saves weight. But when it comes to aer­o­bars, po­si­tional lever­age is more im­por­tant than weight-sav­ing ma­te­rial with the bars eas­ing you into a more stream­lined po­si­tion to cut through the air. Just en­sure you prac­tise in train­ing to ac­cli­ma­tise your body to this new stretched-out set-up.
