Aero bars are a type of handlebar that is commonly used by cyclists who want to improve their aerodynamic position. Aero bars can be attached to the handlebars of most road bikes and some mountain bikes.
There are two main types of aero bars: clip-on aero bars and integrated aero bars. Clip-on aero bars are the most versatile and can be attached to almost any type of handlebar. Integrated aero bars are designed to be used with specific types of handlebars and may not be compatible with all bikes.
Aero bars provide the rider with a more aerodynamic position by placing the hands closer together and in a position that is lower than the handlebars. This reduces wind resistance and can help to improve riding speed.
Aero bars can also be used to rest the hands and arms during long rides. This can help to reduce fatigue and increase comfort levels.
