With OrthoCell®, Ergon exclusively uses this high-tech material, proven in orthopedics, for the CRT Arm Pads. On the bike, this translates to: ideal pressure distribution and vibration damping, enormous resilience after long hours on the bike, no hardening or softening at fluctuating temperatures and no penetration of sweat or other liquids. In addition, the material is antibacterial and easy to clean.
The Ergon CRT Arm Pads for the Profile Design® Race aerobars are 6 millimeters thick resulting in slightly thinner padding than the more comfort oriented „Ergo“ version (10 mm). As a retrofit kit, they are suitable for athletes who want to have as direct of a connection as possible to their triathlon bike, aerodynamically optimized road or gravel bike and those who want to ride as efficiently as possible.
In time trials, it is crucial that you can concentrate 100% on your race. The prerequisite for this is an ideal aerodynamic position on your bike, no matter how long the distance. No constant searching for the perfect position, no fatigue due to vibrations or pressure points, no slipping, no heat build-up, no spongy and insecure riding feeling – this is what sets the CRT Arm Pads apart from the competition.
For a world record machine, every detail, no matter how small, must be just right. That’s why Canyon worked with Ergon on the ergonomic optimization of the arm pads during the development of the Speedmax. One result of this project was the CRT Arm Pads, which are available for Profile Design® aerobars in „Ergo“ and „Race“.
An important factor in the battle against the clock is a stable riding position, which the CRT Arm Pads offer due to the anti-slip surface. In addition, fine ventilation channels reduce unpleasant heat build-up and excessive perspiration.
The CRT Arm Pads direct pressure evenly over the entire surface of the arm rests. This enables an ideal aerodynamic time trial position for hours without annoying pressure points.
Many cyclists complain that they have to keep searching for the optimal forearm position while down in the aero bar position and that their arms tire quickly as a result. The Ergon CRT Arm Pads eliminate this performance-reducing problem thanks to the form fit and the anti-slip surface. The result: more comfort, better concentration on racing and increased performance.
If vibrations are transmitted from the road to your arms, not only is this unpleasant, but your power is also no longer optimally converted into performance and valuable time is lost. The durable OrthoCell® foam effectively absorbs vibrations so you can bring your full power to the road.
Our goal is for you to melt into your aero position and enjoy the speed. Perfect ergonomics provide you with a direct and safe riding experience without any disturbing influences. The Ergon CRT Arm Pads contribute significantly to a safe riding experience by eliminating typical performance-reducing factors.
