Triathlon extensions, gain in aerodynamics
An unmissable triathlete accessory is the triathlon extension improves the aerodynamics of the cyclist, allowing better penetration in the air and a gain of speed.
Moreover, the extension provides comfort for the triathlete who will have less fatigue in the arms thanks to the armrests which offer more support points and possible positions.
The only disadvantage of the extension is its weight (about 180g to 600g) which increases the weight of the bike: it may be detrimental on mountain or hilly trails.
The extension is made of aluminium, carbon or alloy and has different forms of extensions.
Triathlon extension, long-distance comfort
The extensions are also an equipment which makes it possible to improve the comfort of the cyclist and/or triathlete during the long distances, as it isn't always easy to keep the same position on a road handlebar. Some are adjustable in length and rotation. They're often adjustable in length and width though.
Some models are approved by the UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale).
Tip: check the diameter of your handlebar to order the compatible extension.
