It's not proprietary, but the spacers and top cap are kind of Kamm shaped.

Racewaredirect are working on an out in front Garmin mount to fit the bars as well.

M
Don't have saddle numbers to hand, but fit is not dialed in yet. Weather in the UK has meant I've not ridden it much yet, has only done 100 miles or so.
Bar: 410mm
Stem: 100mm

Very nice, congrats.

If you don't mind, any chance you could post a few pictures of the integrated stem/bar? I'm curious to see how that is setup with the Di2 junction box and the wire/cable routing. That H11 Aerocockpit looks nice and clean.

I was this close to ordering one of these beauties, had a Retul fitting and was persuaded not to. My god they look the business!

How does she ride? Good fit? I was told my torso is too small and my legs too long for a decent fit.

Why would you put Boras on a Shimano equipped bike?
