The goal for this bar was to provide a massively stiff handlebar for seriously powerful sprinters, climbers and track use, while including clip-on extension capability with no real weight penalty. Zipp started out by keeping more than 60% of the bar width at the same 31.8mm diameter as the stem clamp, then redesigned the entire laminate structure to include strategic strengthening plies in order to handle clamp pressure of bolted on extensions, plus stiffening plies oriented specifically to handle sprinting loads.
The Zipp SLC2 has full length dual cable routing and the same 20% drop angle as the SL bar meaning that you won't have to tilt your bars upward to get that ideal lever placement, while dual radius drop geometry allow you to customize the reach of your levers to your hand size. Using Zipp's exclusive VCLC technology were were able to design in a very solid yet lively feel to the bar without being overly harsh. At around 185g, the SLC2 delivers on every wheel. Whether you need an ITU legal drop bar/clip-on setup or are just looking to replace that aluminum bar you just bent last weekend, the SLC2 is for you. Whatever your discipline the SLC2 is a winner.
This is the only Zipp bar designed for clip-on aerobars.
