To a large degree, the position of the rider on the bike determines riding performance.
The position of the rider directly influences the force distribution during the pedal stroke and consequently determines pedaling efficiency while the position of the rider’s upper body directly affects aerodynamic drag.
An aerodynamically positioned torso will lower drag therefore improve aerodynamic performance.
Saddle and handlebar adjustability were in effect a major topic during the developmental phase.
Considering the idea that this bike would be ridden by riders of all shapes and sizes, from World Tour riders to long-distance triathletes, the Plasma 5 offers a wide range of adjustability to follow suit.
