Aluminum is far from extinct as a high-end bike material. As an example, many pros still depend on aluminum handlebars, whether it be for peace of mind or because having a more substantial bar is an intelligent technique to meet the UCI minimum weight requirement without sacrificing ride quality. Regardless, the Zipp Service Course SL Handlebar makes probably the most of aluminum’s really useful properties — it includes a low weight, high strength, and a slightly low cost. The entire at the same time as, the SL provides the similar exquisite design detail that is found in Zipp’s carbon fiber bars. The Service Course SL uses the similar shaping for the Short-and-Shallow version as used within the SL Carbon Fiber Handlebar. It is built with round tops that taper downward in a smooth and constant manner from the 31. 8mm clamp area to a 24. 2mm diameter on the top bend. The drop angle is only 20 degrees. What is the net effect? You are able to position your levers within the high-and-Belgian style, and you can get a smooth transition from the bar onto the drops. Along with this, the Short-and-Shallow bar has a dual radius curve within the drops. So, you can get pleasure from the longer, flatter hand surface. We’re tempted to call it an anatomic bend, but remember that the bend shape is, thankfully, subtle and not overly curvy like many anatomic bars of the past. The 84. 5mm reach, plus the short radius at the back of the clamp area, make it easy to get the crook of your hand ‘locked’ into position for an effective feel within the drops. This also provides a simplified reach to the brake levers. For the drop, the 128mm plunge makes the lower portion of the handlebars more accessible. Zipp also produces the Service Course SL in a Traditional Bend with an 87. 5mm reach and a 130mm drop. If you loathe anatomic bars of any sort, but you might be searching for a bar with a modest drop, then that is the bar that is best suited on your tastes. With a somewhat steeper drop angle than the Short-and-Shallow version, this Traditional Bend gives you a bit of …
