Triathlon stalwart FSA is showing a decidedly new direction for its upcoming aero products, and that direction is a good one. Most notably, the company is FINALLY working on an aerobar with independent stack adjustment for the pad/extension complex. It's to be called the SI bar, and although other companies have been making bars this way for many years, FSA reps confirmed that this is the first such product in the company's history. What's more, it will be compatible with standard 22.2mm extensions, also a new feature for FSA.
Shown with these new SI bars was a new SI aero stem. Both are described only as "a direction of things to come," and not meant to represent final products. The prototypes certainly look good, and present a very minimal frontal area. No word on actual availability or final price points, but the bars did show a price tag of $649 on the info card next to them.
In addition, FSA had a prototype of a new BTA bottle and computer mount that look quite a bit like the Speedfil A2. Check out the gallery for more detailed shots of these cool-looking concepts.
