The new articulating aerobar from MORF Technology is a very interesting new idea that I got the change to preview at Interbike this year. Obviously TriRig has a conflict of interest, as we make our own Alpha X aerobar. However, we always love to see new and innovative ideas in the sport, and we try to take a broad and objective look at the bars in our complete article. Read the whole text for the whole scoop.

  • This is the MORF aerobar - an articulating bar that converts from a base bar to aero extensions, and back, with the flick of its dual lock system.
  • MORF back ...
  • ... MORF moving ...
  • ... and MORF forward.
  • MORF in road bike mode.
  • In order to preserve real estate for the shifter, MORF bars use a forward-pointing brake lever integrated into the articulating arm. It's a bit of a paradigm shift, but feels like it would work well.
  • MORF uses an expander plug so allow you to affix different bar ends. Use aerobar extensions, or road cowhorns.

  • And this is what I think of at the best use case for MORF - to make a banging simple-to-pack road travel bike. This feature works just as well for tri bikes, but the ergonomic concerns I bring up in the article are largely absent for road bikes.

  • MORF can be equipped with different types of pads other than the short ones that come with it - our own Ergo Cups fit just fine.
  • And this is the money shot for MORF - the 'aero or die' setup, without the 'or die' part.
