Triathlon

A Triathlon bike, which is very similar to a Time Trial (TT) bike differs from a standard road bike most noticeably by the addition of Aero handlebars. This allows the rider to bend fully over and extend the arms in front to rest on your elbows which as the name suggests makes a better aerodynamic profile. The bike also has slightly different geometry adjusting the seat tube angle to a more upright position of 76-78° in comparison to the 72° norm of a road bike. This is in order to reduce the pressure on the Quadriceps muscle during the cycle stage of a Triathlon so they will be better rested for the following run segment. Competitive aerodynamic bikes may also come with special deep dish aero wheels but this tends to be more of the case with TT bikes specifically.
