This is the Zipp Service Course SL-80 Handlebar. With its 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 on the drops and a flat brake-hood transition for the athlete even while riding with a more upright position. This minimizes the need for up-rotated bars. The bar’s drops are angled outward by 4 degrees to reduce wrist strain.
The result is better ergonomics in the drops or on the hoods. That’s why we’ve evolved our pro-proven lineup of alloy bars based on a steady stream of feedback from fitters and top pros on teams including Omega Pharma – Quick-Step.
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 center 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 bar’s stem clamp area to bottom of drops) places the angled drop position where you can easily reach it while maintaining a neutral wrist angle.
All of 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. Made from ultra strong and lightweight 7050 aluminum. Available in six sizes to meet every rider’s fit needs. Available in High Polish Black with white logos or Beyond Black.
