Triathlon / Time Trial Bike Overview

Triathlon and time trial bikes are designed to be as aerodynamic as possible, in part due to the rule that riders are not allowed to slip stream other riders in time trial races. The main function of time trial cycles is speed. The high profile rims, aero handle bars, lightweight frames and tall seat posts help the rider to achieve very high speeds. Because triathlon bikes have such an aggressive riding style they are relatively uncomfortable and hence only suited to short and intense races.


Characteristics of Triathlon / Time Trial Bikes

  • Light, aero frames
  • Larger 700c size wheels, often with high profile rims and or a rear disc
  • Aero Handlebars
  • Extreme riding position
