Nazim, I put Profile Design Century aero bars on my bike. They have an upturn at the end and the pads are high enough I can still use the flats, but they’re significantly cheaper than the bars Erik mentioned. My only complaint is that the steel bars seem to double the weight of my (carbon fiber) road bike! If I enjoy this first triathlon, I’ll probably switch to carbon bars.

Also the length on them isn’t adjustable. I’m short (5’4″) and they’re perfect, but if you’re much taller they probably won’t work.
