USE Support Hour Record Attempt
While it shares similarities with other cycling disciplines, the consistency of the athletes position during an Hour Record attempt is something unique in cycling. In the case of Bridie's Hour Record that is 187 laps and 59:45 in the aerodynamic position, while performing on the limit of what is physiologically tolerable.
When working through the position optimization phase we needed a front end setup that was versatile and adaptable, while having the sought after aerodynamic properties. The R1 was a logical choice, being the most aerodynamic handlebar available, and having individually adjustable pad stack and pad reach parameters.
The USE R1 front end has allowed us to balance factors of comfort and aerodynamics, piecing together the best possible aero package (bike + athlete position) for the task at hand.
