A shorter reach, shallower drop version of the Wing Pro, the FSA Wing Pro Compact Handlebar is a nice option for those who don’t want to get too low when they’re in the drops. The wing pro gets a ton of use on our demo bikes and the bikes we build for customers. It’s a sturdy bar, but it’s not too heavy.
FSA uses shot peened aluminum, so it’s not only strong, but also has a neat matte finish with a little bit of texture to it. The reach and drop on the FSA Wing Pro Compact Handlebar are a little shorter than normal, so you don’t get stretched out too far and can get into the drops without getting too low.
The Wing Pro Compact’s bend is designed to work well with the new lever shapes from Campagnolo and Shimano (you SRAM guys and gals are set regardless of the bend thanks to your nifty reach adjusters). On the top of the bar, the Wing Pro Compact uses FSA’s aero-ergo shape, sort of a teardrop or airplane wing shape, but not quite.
It’s not a normal flat top, it’s not a normal aero top, it’s just a great mix of the two. The FSA Wing Pro Compact Handlebar is compatible with Vision clip-on aero bars, too, so you don’t need to miss out on the comfort of the aero-ergo shape if you like to do a triathlon here and there.
The Mavic Ksyrium Elite Wheelset take features so far reserved for Mavic's top of the line models. This pair of Ksyrium Elite wheels gets a lighter profile at the rim with ISM, Inter Spoke Milling shaving off extra material between the spokes. These rims are made with Mavic's exclusive Maxtal alloy then Mavic uses a patented Fore drilling process which only penetrates one rim wall giving the rim greater resistance to stress fatigue and no need for rim strips. The rims are SUP welded and machined smooth at the rim joint. The braking surface is UB Control milled, meaning you get greater braking friction that also eliminates shudder.
Both hubs are aluminum bodies with QRM+ double sealed bearings. The rear hub has FTS-L reinforcement, stainless steel inserts at the contact area between the pawl and the hub body this helps with your power transfer and gives greater durability. The Ksyrium Elites uses stainless steel bladed spokes which perhaps are not as light as can be but they are strong, durable and will cut the wind with ease.
The Elites have a 22mm front rim which Pro Tour riders prefer for handling and a 25mm rear rim for added stability. The front wheel uses 18 radially placed spokes. The rear has 22 spokes using Mavic's Isopulse lacing, the drive side spokes are radial and are cross 2 on the non-drive side, this gives better wheel stability and a balanced spoke tension on both sides.
So when you put it all together the Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheelset can be used on race day and trained on everyday. Mavic has combined durability with lightness to make a wheelset that has all the advanced features of their top of the line wheels that you'll notice the first time you ride them.
The fi'zi:k Arione saddle is designed for people who like to move into different positions while climbing, getting into the drops, or riding on the hoods. The Arione saddle is a little longer, a little flatter than most other saddles, creating for many a more comfortable saddle.
In addition to the flat shape and the longer nose, fi'zi:k also added Wingflex, essentially flexible tabs right where the saddle flares out for the part where your butt goes on the shell of the saddle. This makes it so you can scoot back to really mash the pedals without getting any uncomfortable chafing or pressure points. The fi'zi:k Arione saddle is made for what fi'zi:k calls Snakes, people who move about their saddle as they ride in different situations.

The Fork Stand bridges the gap between rollers and trainers. With the Fork Stand, you have the option of using your Kreitler Rollers without having to focus constantly on your balance.
For maximum effort intervals, single-leg drills, or sharing your rollers with someone who doesn't want the challenge of riding rollers, the Fork Stand is perfect. Two heights are available depending on the size drum you have. Heights are based on the Standard Kreitler Frame.
The Fork Stand can be used with the Kompact Frame, but your bike will be slightly lower in the back than the front.
