With its newly refined drop shape, the Service Course SL-80 provides comfortable and efficient positions on the bar tops, brake hoods or down in the drops. The bar allows a neutral wrist position in the drops and a flat brake-hood transition even while riding in a more upright position. This minimizes the need for up-rotated bars. The bar’s drops are also angled outward by 4 degrees to reduce wrist strain. The result is better ergonomics in the drops or on the hoods. That’s why Zipp have evolved their pro-proven line-up of alloy bars based on a steady stream of feedback from fitters and top UCI World Tour riders.
It all comes down to providing riders with options to find the best-fitting bar. The SL-80 is named after its 80mm reach (horizontal distance from the bar’s stem clamp area to centre of the brake perch). That brings the hoods and control levers back where you want them, while keeping the drops close and usable – all without requiring a shorter stem. The ergonomic 125mm drop (vertical distance from the bar’s stem clamp area to the bottom of the drops) places the angled drop position where you can easily reach it while maintaining a neutral wrist angle. All that works together to provide comfort and aerodynamic efficiency for when the hammer is down. The SL-80’s rounded bar top is clip compatible and is constructed from ultra-strong and lightweight 7050 aluminium.
