The bars have a flat (not aero) top section that made it a little tricky to get the position of the top and drops perfect at first but not a serious issue. I was unsure of the 12 degree flare but its proven to be the perfect amount for a more comfortable ride on road!
I've been riding and racing bicycles since 1990 and have ridden dozens of saddles. As a female cyclist I've struggled to find a saddle comfortable enough to ride for hours on the road and race on the track. This saddle is perfect. I now have one on every bike. Great for road rides, track, and time trials.
