This position is as close to perfect as it gets. All the joint angles are excellent. The bike and components are aligned under the rider for optimal comfort and power output with good basic aerodynamics. This position is nearly perfect for a multisport athlete, but differs from a cycling time trail position in that it is slightly higher. This is not the position you would want for a time trail stage in the Tour de France, but this is the position you would want for the Ironman or the local international distance triathlon.

The rider has excellent posture and an attractive, flat "A" back.
