The drawing suggests the aero extensions are attached at the stem and not the bars.

Hopefully a set of clip ons are not ‘cycling’s most important change in 30 years’.

I’m hoping for something more!

This has been confirmed by a Trek Dealer and Trek Rep as a real thing. Not a new bike, but a new set of compatible TT Bars for the Madone Aerobar that are due for release in the Spring (April) 2019.
Yeah, and this gonna be a new bar, so you'll need to re-route all the cables, bleed brakes and etc.
I quite like idea on SystemSix: Vision bars were made with idea of extensions and have sockets, unlike tradition clip-ons. I'm not doint TT, but I'd take that route if ever decide to give it a try.
Not true.

Just ordered the TT bar kit with a 15 degree face plate. Hopefully they introduce XXX-9 wheels sometime in 2020 as I would add an 80/90mm rear wheel to go with the XXX-6 in the front. I'll post some pics once its complete.

Don't hang on for the tilted bracket/stem combi - been waiting since they was announced in the spring - I've ended up with the straight bracket & stem as I've been told the angled brackets/stem combi still failing tests and back in R&D. If you know different pls post.
