This Zipp Service Course SL-80 Ergo features the same 80mm reach from the popular SL-80 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 and giving a flat transition to the hoods.
This remains true for the drop of the bar, 125mm 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.
The Sl-80 Ergo 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 also available in 4 sizes.
This is the handlebar that fits most individuals the best, however, for shorter riders or those who prefer to reach down to the drops, see the Zipp Service Course SL-70 Ergo, which offers the same bar but with a shorter reach and a longer drop. This is why the majority of the bikes that we build use this Ergo bar shape, as it provides reliable performance and comfort, with the flexibility to fit it to the rider.
