Our bars, stems, and seatposts help you achieve optimal position on the bike for efficiency and speed.
Hop on your bike and pedal. You’ll soon discover the many impediments to speed. Hills. Wind resistance. And, quite possibly, how you’re connected to and interacting with your bike. Consider what happens when you make a hard-solo effort. You will go faster using the same wattage with a low back, hands in the drops, or perhaps on the brake hoods. But can you maintain that position comfortably to benefit from that free speed? This is why Zipp bars, stems, and seatposts have always been developed with a fit-first focus -- to make you faster.
If you’re efficient and comfortable in that position, you go significantly faster. This simple truth of cycling performance is at the center of Zipp’s fit-first philosophy for designing handlebars, stems, and seatposts. Think of these products as accouterments of speed: precisely designed upgrades that make you faster through precise fit, an efficient position, and superior ergonomics. To help riders find their best option, Zipp classifies alloy and carbon offerings by reach (the gravel focused 70 XPLR, short 70mm, medium 80mm, long 88mm) and rider position (low, high). Stems are available in a wide array of lengths to pair with bars for a precise fit. Seatposts are secure, lightweight, and easy to adjust.
Brake Lever set up is critical these days; this is a convenient guide for setting up SRAM brake levers onto Zipp bars. The best way is to start at the lower portion of the range and once the pitch of the bar is set for the use of the drops move the brake lever up or down in the range to find the shaking hands with the brake lever position.
