It would be interesting to see if they do put it in the tarmac or not - my guess is no.

They have a wind tunnel test that shows exposed cables are about 12 second over a 40k TT.

I’’m assuming the weight increase to accommodate internal routing would be 50-150 grams? You’d have to:
- specific stem with mount hardware
- special headset spacers with cable routing
- larger headset bearing to allow the cables to pass in thru them
- increase in headtube diameter to allow for the cables to enter and free move inside the head tube.

I don’ really see them giving up 100 grams for 12 seconds on their lightweight platform. But it’s a choice.

+ it's a hassle to travel (or even change stems) with.
