Zipp Handle Bars

The anatomy of a handlebar is probably not something you have given much thought to, yet understanding the relationship between the bar's ramp and brake perch could be the golden ticket to reaching your ideal bike position.

It's what Zipp has focused on in the development of its new Service Course SL and Service Course handlebar range.

Studying positions of professional riders on its previous handlebar range, Zipp saw that, in order to get a good reach on the hoods, riders' position on the drops could be compromised, and vice versa. Using this information and feedback from bike-fitters has been key in its redesign.
