This Zipp Service Course SL-70 Ergo features the same 70mm reach from the popular SL-70 bars, however, uses a flatted top section to provide a more ergonomic grip. Similarly, the ramp angle has been revised to better fit the rider, focusing on comfort. This is further shown with the shallow backsweep at the base of the bar, improving comfort.
This remains true for the drop of the bar, 128mm being ideal for comfort, while still providing the handling and lever accessibility that is necessary for going fast. This bar is compatible with clip-ons, meaning that it can be used for time trialling as well.
This bar is covered with a lifetime warranty from Zipp, ensuring that its aluminium construction will be with a part of your bike for many rides to come. It is available in 4 sizes.
This is the handlebar that fits most individuals the best, however, for taller riders or those with a longer reach, see the Zipp Service Course SL-80 Ergo, which offers the same bar but with a longer reach. This is why the majority of the bikes that we build use this Ergo bar shape, as it provides reliable performance and comfort.
