Zipp is better known for wheels than for bars… and you’re going to have to be a wheeler-dealer to afford this costly cockpit!
The base bar with central stem-mount tube and twin barrel receivers for the extensions are similar to USE’s Tula. The broad teardrop outer wings get an anhedral droop and you get hummingbird-shaped end horns, complete with crooked lever blades.
These mimic the position of a conventional drop bar set-up and certainly feel comfortable. Disappointingly, the rubberised grip strips were coming loose before we used the bar.
Armrest adjustment is limited to optional height change spacers and three sets of boltholes for sideways movement. The S-bend forward extensions can be telescoped in and out of the receivers.
Chicane extensions are included, while ski tip, straight and ‘Vukashift’ versions are also available. At nearly £800, though, we’d demand something considerably lighter than the Vuka Aero’s 848g.
