The Devox aerobar is well-known to owners of Felt bikes. The bars come stock on Felt's upper-end triathlon/TT bikes, and they are fantastic. But less known is the fact that Felt sells these bars retail, at three price points, in both UCI-legal and Tri-specific configurations. Read our in-depth review for the whole scoop.

  • The Felt Devox aerobars, 545g as pictured.
  • The bars are flat, with a very slim frontal profile.
  • The arm cups feature a lot of adjustability, and can be flipped inward for an elbows-touching fit.
  • A built-in routing port makes it a cinch to route cables through the bars.  This is a feature we wish was found on more aerobars.
  • Shown here is the low-stack spacer, at 10mm.  A 20mm version is also included, which helps improve ergonomics with some extension shapes.
  • Even the nut that grabs the adjustment screws is molded into an aero profile.
  • The Devox version of the bar comes with carbon everywhere - base bar, extensions, and even the arm cups.
  • The slender profile of the bars looks great - shown here is the 4.2:1 UCI-illegal bar, one of the fastest airfoils available to triathletes.
  • Just two bolts per side is all the hardware required to secure the bars.
  • We like these low-profile arm cups, which put your arms just above the top of the stem clamp.
  • Rolling the extensions in makes for a very comfortable 'prayer grip' with the stock F-bend extensions.
  • Also included is a computer mount crossbar that can be zip-tied in place between the extensions.
  • From the front, it's obvious this is a lean, mean bar.
  • Felt also includes a set of rubber grips that can be optionally used in place of bar tape.
  • The rubber grips have a protrusion that provides some resistance against sliding forward off the bars.
  • These low-profile rubber gel arm pads are supplied with the bar.
