Sphinx Ltd is a dedicated endurance racing bar. Former world points racing champion Cameron Meyer helped our team engineer this design which provides optimized positions for points and Madison races that alternate between level high speed and all-out sprinting.
Unique forward bend supports the rider in the sphinx wide-aero position pioneered by Spanish former track champion Joan Llaneras.
Combines an aerofoil top section with lower handholds from the Ergosum drop bar.
The wingtips of the aerofoil meet the upper part of the round-section drops, which are slightly tilted up this allows riders to hook their wrists inside the bend, palms facing outwards.
Vertical part of the bend flattens into a narrow aerofoil section, and then joins the bottoms which provide a conventional round-section handhold for the sprint.
Sphinx Ltd is legal for UCI events but your stem length is critical to staying within the rules.
Read Using 3T Sphinx in UCI races before specifying your bike setup you will likely need a shorter stem than you are used to. Follow the UCI guide and refer to the comments on Article 1.3.022, specifying that the handlebar be no more than 5 cm in front of the bicycle’s front axle.
