A minimalist bar for climbers and smaller riders, Zipp's SL Handlebar is the result of more than four years of research and development and more than 40 revisions of the carbon-laminate structure. It weighs a mere 170 grams and it's stiff enough to grunt over the steepest grades and smooth enough for all-day comfort, thanks to Zipp's VCLC vibration-damping technology. Plus, features such as a gradual taper from 31.8mm at the clamp to 24.2mm at the bends and dual cable grooves contribute to the SL's classic looks.
