Both bars have a new, lighter aerofoil top wing, symmetrical in section and with a pronounced forward sweep. SCATTO’s round-section handholds, or drops, hang from the wingtips by a narrow vertical strut, like a jet engine nacelle.
The wing and struts simply support the handholds with the least possible wind resistance – in the sprint, the rider is always in the drops and needs no other handhold. Frontal area is much less than oversize, all-round-section bars, but the rider still gets plenty of elbow clearance for all-out efforts.
SCATTO is lighter than an alloy or cro-mo sprint bar and as strong as the most robust composite bar, and has better aerodynamics than both.
