To get there, we started out by keeping more than 60% of the bar width at the same 31.8mm diameter as the stem clamp. Then we strategically redesigned the carbon laminate structure, adding strength around the clamp to handle clip-on extensions and stiffness to handle sprinting loads.
Despite its stout characteristics, the SLC2 cuts no corners in terms of ride quality due to Zipp's vibration absorbing VCLC technology. Whether you need an ITU legal drop bar/clip-on setup or you're looking for the perfect sprinter's setup, the SLC2 is a winner at every discipline.
As the only Zipp drop bar designed for clip-on extensions, the SLC2 is the perfect complement to the VukaClip with your choice of VukaExtensions.
Zipp handlebar widths are measured from the outside edge to outside at the 'brake perch' part of the bar, NOT at the 'bar end' part of the bar.
About Road Handlebars
Road bars are curved to offer a multitude of positions to suit the terrain. When climbing in the saddle you will often ride on the tops which are the part of the bar either side of the stems clamping point. When out of the saddle on climbs or accelerating you will often ride on the lever hoods mounted at the front of the bars curved section. For higher speeds you will find yourself on the drops, which offer a lower more aerodynamic position. Road bars come in a variety of widths, from 36cm wide up to 44cm, a good guide for bar width is your shoulder width, a bar should not be narrower than your shoulders as this can close up your chest, but they should not be so wide that you are creating a large frontal area. Road handlebars come in two clamp sizes, 31.8mm which is oversized and 26/25.8mm which is standard, it is essential that you get the correct clamp size for your stem as a poor fit will slip round. Road bars also come in different shapes and depths, with various bends for ergonomic reasons, some will also feature grooves in the material for your brake and gear cables to slot into, this helps to keep the bar round once tape is applied. Then there is the all-in-one bar and stem systems from brands such as Cinelli's Ram 2 and the Pro Stealth which offer clean lines and look great with their exposed carbon finish.
