Triathlon Arm Rests TAO X3
A SAFE BET
After 3 years on the market in its two previous versions, we have refined the X3 version by applying everything we have learned and the feedback from elite triathletes to design the ultimate support.
Inclined plane, better support
Tetsuo exclusive feature.
Designing a flat support from the elbow is easy and intuitive but it is not correct, the arm is simply not flat.
After meny analysis and prototyping, we have reached the maximum comfort that supports can provide.
A simple angle of 7 degrees from the center of the support improves the contact surface by 100%, and increases comfort.
Punto de anclaje
1mm thick stainless steel plate
In addition to providing rigidity to the assembly, it prevents the screw head from wearing out the carbon fiber.
Being made of stainless steel, galvanic corrosion that appears between carbon and aluminum is avoided.
Although its density is higher than that of aluminum, making it heavier, it is considerably stiffer.
Velcro foam specifically formulated for triathlon.
The chemical composition had to fulfill two purposes: Being non-slip and closed-cell, it does not absorb moisture.
Although it can withstand temperatures of more than 90 degrees, its continuous exposure to the sun is not recommended.
It includes velcro both in the foam and in the carbon fiber for easy replacement or adjustment of the position of the supports.
Check that the TAO arm rest are compatible with you and your bike
Tetsuo's team will solve all doubts that you may have during assembly.
Remove your couplings
Depending on the bike you use, the assembly may vary, but you always start by removing the supports that you have mounted.
Mount the Supports
The new hole pattern of the supports allows a high range of adjustability. Screw them directly to the handlebars or to one of our wedges.
Adjust the system
Once placed in your optimal position simply place the foam with the velcro on top.
After years of experience working for the main Formula 1 teams, we have the experience and the necessary equipment for the highest level carbon fiber manufacturing.
