Together with team Jumbo-Visma and Pontis Engineering Ceilidh Composite Technologies has produced a special handle bar for their time trial bikes.
The new handlebars bring a 25% decrease in weight and increased aerodynamic performance. This setup was used by Primož Roglič with great succes, winning the 2019 La Vuelta time trial.
With 3D printed plugs (mother forms) Ceilidh utilized their short run mould concept to manufacture the parts. With 2 iterations of the design to increase strength and ‘countability’ the extensions incorporate thin stainless steel plates in way of bolts for fixation, and are hollow to enable placement of gear cables .
