With the world in lockdown mode, athletes around the world are trying their best to adapt. We checked in with Team Vorarlberg to see what they were doing to keep up with their training and keep sane in these uncertain times.
From January 2020, Bike Corp will be taking over Profile Design and Bellwether Clothing as the new exclusive Australian distributor. As of 27th January, Bikecorp will partially be able to fulfill orders from both Profile Design and Bellwether and is hoping that the transfer of previous distributor TMO’s stock will be complete soon after that.

Thanks to Dan Empfield from Slowtwitch.com for his in depth review of Profile Design's new FLYT Aerobars System. We are proud of the efforts our engineering team put in to redeveloping our aerobar lineup to make it a more streamlined, cohesive and uniform concept.
"FLYT is PD's nomenclature for its aerobar system, and nomenclature has not always been its strong suit. You're probably used to the "T" designation: T1 thru 4 (extension shapes) that are either made of aluminum or carbon…” said Dan. And in support of the new FLYT Systems Sonic brackets, Dan goes on to say, "The J2 bracket has sailed off into history. None too soon for me."
There's no doubt that bike fit can be a daunting task. Here at Profile Design we’ve been working over 30 years to not only simplify the process of fitting an aerobar to a rider, but to also expand the number of fit options possible to make sure every cyclist can be #fitforspeed! Through the analyzation of data accumulated since Profile Design was incorporated in 1988 the FLYT System was born. Using a simple combination of 3 brackets, 3 armrests and 3 extensions, FLYT gives fitters and riders 27 possible combinations to cover thousands of fit options.
Cyclingabout.com has done an awesome write up on the importance of Aerobars while "Bikepacking."
Among other attributes they state that "Aerobars will help to reduce your frontal area, resulting in higher riding speeds for the same amount of effort."
Topics covered include armrest, arm pad, extension and height adjustments.
