FAQ Are tri bars designed for novice or just experienced triathletes? Will I also benefit?
Triathlon bars make you aerodynamic and once you get used to them they are more comfortable. There are significant aerodynamic advantages when using tri bars correctly. They are not safe cycling in groups training.
It takes time practise and confidence to get use to them. You must spend many hours in the aero position away from busy roads and people before you decide to race with them.
Clip on bars are easy to put on and take off if you do not always want to use them.
