What is the difference between TT(Time Trial) bike and Tri bike?

A time trial bike is very similar to a tri bike. The fact is, the market of the time trial is so small that most of the manufacturers just produce triathlon bike, which is suitable for both time trial and triathlon. BTW, triathlon bikes are made under UCI standard.

The main differences are as below

Bike geometry

Based on UCI rule, time trial bikes had to match 3:1 rule, meanings that no part of the bike can be any more than three times longer than its width at any point.

And a triathlon bike doesn’t have to match UCI rules, which allows these manufacturers to design the bike as aerodynamic as possible, but the rider needs a less aggressive position on the bike because they need to balance their muscles among running, swimming and biking.

Bike Accessories

Based on different demand, triathlon bike always comes with food storage, extra water bottles cage behind the seatpost.

While time trial bike just has no water, no food, and always a disc rear wheel.

Bike Fit

In the time trial, cyclists’ only goal is to get to the finish line as fast as possible.

A Tri bike sometimes has a more forward saddle position, which offers riders less leg muscle stress.

Tri Bike vs Road Bike

  1. Triathlon and TT bikes have higher gearing due to a shorter distance than road bikes.
  2. Deeper rims (or disc wheels), which means more aerodynamic.
  3. Tri bikes are built with rest bars and aero bars.
  4. Tri bikes have a shorter top tube to gain an adequate stem length.

Fast Bike

Tri bikes are designed to be the fastest bike. More aero position and accessories like aero helmet, seat post, fork, even water bottle.
