Syncros aero RR1.0 cockpit
The fully integrated RR1.0 cockpit from Syncros was developed in conjunction with the Foil and adds to the aerodynamic excellence of this bike. Its superior aerodynamic properties stem from its aero-optimized shape which includes an F01 profile on the horizontal part of the bar along with state-of-the-art integration possibilities. Full integration of brake cables, mechanical and electronic shifting cables and Shimano’s Di2 junction box ensure a smooth transition between the cockpit and the frame, a clean look and aerodynamic cable routing. Despite the aerodynamic bar design which even features a recess to ensure a smooth transition between the bar tape and the grippy top area of the bar where no bar tape is needed, the Syncros Aero RR1.0 Cockpit has been designed following ergonomic principles. Another major advantage of this integrated carbon cockpit is the ability to specifically tailor the performance of the carbon structure on one piece. Towards the connection with the bar, the stem flares out into a triangulated section which offers a larger contact point for the bar to maximize rigidity and resist twisting.
Removing the junction between stem and bar, in addition, increases the stiffness of the cockpit to a level that is impossible to achieve for a conventional setup. At the same time, the carbon cockpit weighs in at an impressively low 395g (42cm bar width/110mm stem length). While the bar angle is predetermined due to the one-piece cockpit construction, the engineering team has conducted an in-depth analysis of handle bar positions in order to create a neutral position. Two different mount options make sure Garmin head units can be perfectly positioned in front of the cockpit and the rider has his data easily visible at all times. The Syncros Aero RR1.0 Cockpit is also available as an aftermarket piece. Thanks to a reducer shim it is compatible with both 1 1/4” and 1 1/8” steerers. Specific Aero Spacers have been designed for the Foil in order to achieve a smooth transition between the stem and the frame. The Aero Spacers are available in 2mm, 5mm, 10mm and 20mm in order to fine tune the stack of the cockpit.
