Extension Finger Hooks
As ridden by the AeroLab Ward WheelZ team to a Bronze medal in the men's Team Pursuit at the 2020 HSBC UK | National Track Championships.
These have been designed to help riders achieve a more optimal and more secure riding position within the restrictive UCI regulations. The 10 cm rule often causes riders to have to hold on right at the tip of their extensions, often with fingers floating off the end of the extensions. These Extension Finger Hooks provide a secure hook to wrap fingers around to prevent slippage when the hands are held on or off the ends of the extensions.
The shape was achieved through an extensive process of prototyping and refinement, with 10 different shapes trialled.
Strength has been extensively tested and improved through destructive testing of countless prototypes, resulting in finger hooks that are both strong and lightweight at only 13.5 g per pair (including o-rings)
The fit has been fine tuned to work in a wide range of extensions, including: Zipp, USE and 3T
Manufactured from engineering grade Polycarbonate, resulting in superior mechanical properties, particularly in strength and toughness over most commonly used polymers.
We can produce these in almost any colour, to match your bike or clothing, but please contact beforehand as this could increase the lead time and cost.
