Not every cyclist or triathlete wants a full-carbon base bar with carbon extensions. Some prefer to use clip-on extensions with th...eir drop bars for more versatility in hand positions, or to make climbing, and out of the saddle riding a little more comfortable. Profile Design's T4 Plus Clip-On TT Bars are an economical solution to make your road bike more aerodynamic. Profile Design's T4 Plus clip-on TT bars were constructed from 6061-T6 aluminum, a lightweight and durable alloy. And while they may not carry that certain "bling factor" of a carbon weave, they're actually lighter (by over 150g) than their T4 carbon counterpart. In terms of shape, they feature a traditional ski-bend shape with a rather shallow bend. Accordingly, this shape keeps the wrists and forearms aligned, which in turn, increases comfort for long hours on the bars. This shape also make these the perfect bars for the beginner to intermediate triathlete who rides a road bike, but needs to get their position as aerodynamic as possib Read More

In a normal world, most people would take a shower and go home after T1. However, this is where the real racing begins in a triath...lon. And over the next leg of unsupported tarmac, it's crucial to stay as hydrated as possible. For this reason, Profile Design created the RMC Carbon Fiber Rear Mount with Kage. Profile Design's RMC mounts to the rear portion of your saddle rails, enabling you to carry two extra bottles at the rear of your bike. Even better, with the RMC's carbon fiber construction, you're able to achieve this at a low overall weight -- around 120 grams without the cages. You'll also find that the RMC takes on a slight airfoil shape, which creates a positive trailing edge for your bike. Accordingly, the RMC's aerodynamic impact is nearly negligible. For the water bottle cages, Profile employed two of its venerable Kage bottle holders. These are constructed from nylon-injected fiberglass, which keeps their individual weight to around 52 grams. Additionally, tabs at the top and bottom of t Read More

With the option of buying your base bar and extensions as a kit-of-parts, riders of all levels and budgets are now able to fully c...ustomize their triathlon or time trial bike. The Profile Designs T2 Wing Base Bar gives you the same wind-cheating shape as a carbon bar, only in a more economical aluminum version. This 6061 aluminum wing profile was designed to mimic the wing shape of the carbon Viper Wing base bar. It's a flat bar, meaning that there's zero drop from the top to the bullhorns. In addition, the bar between the center clamp area and the bullhorns has been flattened (in line with the UCI 3:1 ratio) minimizing the profile of the bar in the wind. In terms of comfort, the T2 features a shape that's easy to rest your hands on between efforts. Additionally, the reach to the bullhorns is 157mm. This allows you to position your hands on the bullhorns, much as you would on brake hoods, for either climbing or out-of-the-saddle riding. The ends of the horns were designed for plug-style bar-end Read More

Consider the cat out of the bag -- a forward body position is ideal for both triathlon and time trial. However, we don't all have ...bikes with 78 degree seat tube angles, do we? Well, lucky for us all, Profile Design created the Fast Forward Aluminum Seatpost to alleviate this problem. The Fast Forward Aluminum features a 38mm offset, meaning that it moves your riding position 38mm forward. So, for a real world example, the Fast Forward will make a 73 degree seat tube angle more like a 78 degree seat tube angle. Accordingly, you're able to achieve a more forward position, limiting the required stretch that's necessary for the TT body position. Additionally, it creates a direct drive of power to the cranks, while reducing pressure and stress to the perineum region. For the the construction, Profile Design employed the lightweight and durable 6061-T6. Accordingly, the Fast Forward only tips the scales around 300 grams without sacrificing anything to strength or rigidity. The Profile Design Fast Forward Read More

Did your bike come without bottle cage mounts, or do you just get sick of having to reach all the way down to the down tube to hyd...rate? Profile Design has the answer to all of your problems. The Rear Mount bottle cage system mounts directly to your seat rails and carries not one, but two standard water bottles. Not only that, but the bottles will be conveniently located right behind your butt--a much shorter reach than standard bottle cage mounts. Along with carrying your bottles, this bracket conveniently holds two CO2 cartridges for roadside repairs.The Profile Design Rear Mount bottle cage comes in one size. It's available in black.

Sometimes, we find that starting from scratch is the most direct route to efficiency. Sure, Profile Design has provided the tools ...to build up its Aero HC System from individual pieces, but if you need the most efficient triathlon hydration right now, you simply can't beat the Aero HC. This system's accompanying bottle features a BPA-free plastic construction and about every aerodynamic trick in the book. You'll notice that the nose of the bottle is rounded like a bullet in order to create a minimal drag profile. Along these lines, Profile Design also created a shrouded straw mount, and even the refilling flip cap features an aerodynamic design. To secure the system, Profile's bracket mounts to your extension bars, leaving room for you to place your bottle between the extensions. This means that you're able to remain tucked over the extensions while hydrating, so you're never forced to either increase your profile or sacrifice control of the bike. Additionally, the bracket features an adjustable widt Read More
