With more off-road riders going long, aerodynamics are becoming a consideration for gravel bikes and mountain bikes, too. Specialized went so far as to test positions and gear in their Win Tunnel leading up to Leadville, and now smaller brand RideFarr has an easy, add-on solution to dropping drag. It could be the perfect way to keep your hands fresh on NUE events and gravel races like the Dirty Kanza, too.
The new RideFarr Carbon Aero Bolt-On clamps to the center of your handlebar, giving you a narrower profile without sacrificing a secure hand hold. Or putting potentially dangerous extension bars on a bike that’s more likely to see you going over the front of it.
The system works on flat and drop bars, meaning you could use it on any type of bike. It fits 31.8mm Bar Diameter and makes room for GPS cycling computers and LED lights (pick one, not both simultaneously) and weighs in at just 98g.
There’s no need to temove your bar, brakes, shifters or grip/tape, so it installs in minutes. And it’ll work with their ergonomic flat handlebar, which puts flattened, palm-shaped flaps just outside of the stem clamp zone.
