Profile Airwing Aerobar

Profile Airwing Aerobar
Here are two of the Profile Airwing Aero Bars; the DB Road and the OS. First of all the Airwing DB Road is a lightweight time trial or triathlon bar at a reasonable price, with double butted 6061-T6 aluminium. It has a shallow drop for climbing, shot peened for durability and predrilled for internal cable routing. At 40cm wide it has a weight of 230g.

The Profile Airwing OS Aero Bar is an oversize flat road bar with gentle drop and already set up for internal routing. Its good for time trials or triathlon and the shallowness of the drop makes it useful for out of the saddle riding. The wider stance also improves balance needed for climbing while also keeping in the aero position. Stiffness is increased by the oversize 31.8mm clamping area, so its a good bar for power riders.

The Airwing is sometimes preferred for flatter courses as well. It has a shot peened finish for protection and strength and a weight of approximately 230g.
