The Redshift Sports Switch aero system lets you switch on-the-fly between a normal road bike position and an aero position that's similar to the setup of a tri bike. The system includes the patent-pending Quick-Release Aerobars and Dual-Position seatpost. Together, they transform your road bike into an aerodynamic, comfortable triathlon bike, without sacrificing your regular road setup.
The Quick-Release Aerobars can be attached or removed in seconds (without using any tools), letting you convert from road to aero positions at a moment's notice. The quick-release clamp locks the aerobars securely in the same position every time, and the safety retention mechanism ensures that the bars stay locked in place until you decide to remove them. A huge range of adjustability lets you easily change pad width, stack height, and extension reach, and choose between multiple extension shapes.
The aerobars are compatible with 26.0 and 31.8 mm handlebar diameters, and require 22 mm (7/8 inch) of straight cylindrical clamping length on either side of the bicycle stem. The aerobars weigh 640 g.
The Dual-Position Seatpost lets you switch your saddle between a normal road position and an aero position that's similar to the setup of a tri bike.
The seatpost maintains the same pedal-to-saddle length in both positions, ensuring proper leg extension in the road and aero riding positions. Also, since some riders prefer more forward saddle tilt while riding in an aero position, the seatpost includes an additional adjustment that tilts the saddle forward by up to five degrees when you move from the road to the aero position. The mechanism is completely stable in both positions - a spring-loaded stop holds it securely in place until you decide to change positions.
The post is 27.2 mm in diameter by 350 mm in length and weighs 400 g. The system is constructed from aerospace grade 6061-T6 aluminum alloy.
