After competing in triathlons for the last couple of years I feel it neccessary to purchase some aero bars for my road bike. This is partly down to the fact that I am in a minority without them (and feel left out) and I am intrigued to how much difference they will make to my speed.

I have done some research and am considering the Profile Design carbon range. Either T1 Plus Viper or T2 Plus Cobra.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

no suggestions, though if you had asked me at the start of your triathlon career how to start your cycling I would have told you to get aero bars then!!!

Most of the racing riders have them.

What counts is getting your torso and arms into the correct position. And a number of factors are involved.

I use the T2+ bars. I think they're a good bet, I've seen them recommended before and would second that. They're very flexible in terms of setup and not too expensive. Make sure you're happy with the wrist position they offer though.
