AURA is a new, entry level carbon fiber bar aimed at time trialists. AURA shares its basic architecture with MISTRAL, but its basebar has a simplified top skin and top mounted extension clamps. This means it lacks the multiple elbow rest positions of MISTRAL, but is lighter. AURA comes with S bend extensions as standard, but owners will be able to swap in any of 3Ts range of extensions, including the Christian Vande Velde Special Edition Deep S bends. Like all of the 3T 2010 cockpit components, AURA complies with UCI, so is permitted in pro races. Simplicity, low weight, and efficient production keep the price low for such an advanced component.
