The new RideFarr armrest kit takes their add-on aero handlebar kits for gravel bikes and mountain bikes up a notch on the comfort scale. And their simply-named Storage Bag gives you a tidy place to pack your essentials without giving up any of the extra real estate created by their aero bars.
Both are clever additions to their collection, helping your endurance go ultra when it’s time to hit the dirt. Here’s their Remote Otter video submission explaining it all, followed by pics and specs…
RideFarr Carbon Aero Bolt-On Armrests
An add on for an add on…not something we see often, but it makes perfect sense here. The carbon aero hand rest offers more hand positions, but probably only for short, sporadic use. Now, thanks to simple lower clamps with adjustable L-brackets, you can mount your favorite elbow pads or arm rests to them and adjust to fit. For longer tucks, these provide a simple, lightweight addition.
They’re CNC-machined parts that replace the lower clamp piece on the Aero Bolt-On, so you’ll need that part to use these. They have two vertical positions and three lateral positions, giving you just enough adjustment range. Pre-orders open soon on their website, first shipments should start in June 2020. Price is $79 and includes the Profile Designs arm cups and pads.
RideFarr Storage Bag for aero bars
Got their gravel or mountain bike bar with the aero loop on the front? Now you can add streamlined storage to it, filling the space inside the loop with a multi-pocketed storage bag. Underneath is a short Bungee strap to hold extra stuff (that you don’t mind getting dirty, unless you’re running fenders).
It’s made with a 1000D Cordua exterior with a softer liner that extends to create a skirted bowl. Stuff things in, then cinch that inner fabric shut over the contents. The top flap secures by pulling the stretchy loop over the back of your stem, allowing for quicker, easier access than fiddling with a zipper while trying to steer. There’s a smaller zippered pocket on the top of the flap for things like maps, phones, etc.
They’re made in the USA and start shipping in May. Pricing TBA, get on their mailing list for first dibs on this and the arm rests.
Where’s the other stuff?
Wondering about these sweet aero endurance handlebars and add ons shown in this post? They’re all from Farr and include the Carbon Aero Bolt-On V2, the Aero Carbon MTB handlebar. It’s also available in alloy now (check it out in the video above), and the Aero Gravel handlebar. The latter two use an integrated loop built into the front for extra hand positions.
