HI all,

I'm looking for the lowest possible "clip-on" aero bar to fit on standard round oversize handlebars.
The U17 cat. cyclists here have to use their road bikes on TT events, but are allowed to use clip-ons.

Most bars I tried raise the position of the rider pretty much, I'd like to find a model that can provide the best aero position without being too much of a hassle to fit to the road bike ( stem swap, etc..).

Thanks for the ideas guys :beerchug:

Louis :)

Profile Design V2+ or ADL are low. Unlike a lot of others you can also set the pads back a fair bit from the bar to reduce the stretch you often get from clip-ons on a road bike.

Controltech has two options.
Both are also among the lightest (and can be tuned to be lighter)

Aero Cockpit Plus

Installation on either is super easy. Position is pretty close to normal road/resting on the bartop.

will the Aero Cockpit Plus fit my Zipp SL70 Aero bars? not sure if it's narrow enough to fit.

Ritchey Pro Sliver
Simple, light, extensions come in front of the bar, not underneath, stackheight is very low. Not expensive. Only downside I found where the padholders: They're a quite wide and tend to flex. I ended up using Deda pad(holders).

but since they don't make them anymore.. i'm thinking to DIY something like that to mount from the stem.

The lowest clip on is a Vision TT Clip in wide armrest setting - 25mm above bar centre. However, it rises 5mm for every inwards step in pad width.
Profile V-Series and Zipp Vuka Clip Low mount both have min stack 35mm
You can get lower by getting something like a Profile T1 (alloy) and mounting beneath the bars, then stacking up the armrest. However it is quite limiting for reach positions.

I understand the desire to go low, the trend however is to bring the arms up quite a bit in TT.

Did you see stage 18 yesterday? The guys running their normal bikes with clip-ons were running the stems flipped up with 2 or 3 spacers underneath to position the arms in front of their chest, even Geraint Thomas from Team Sky who usually know what they are doing.
