Zipp Handlebar Service Course SL-80
Zipp Handlebar Service Course SL-80 - Comfort and Control
With its newly refined drop shape, the Service Course SL-80 provides comfortable and efficient positions on the bar tops, brake hoods or down in the drops.
The bar allows a neutral wrist position on the drops and a flat brake-hood transition for the athlete even while riding with a more upright position.
This minimizes the need for up-rotated bars. The bar’s drops are angled outward by 4 degrees to reduce wrist strain.
The result is better ergonomics in the drops or on the hoods.
That’s why we’ve evolved our pro-proven lineup of alloy bars based on a steady stream of feedback from fitters and
top pros on teams including Omega Pharma – Quick-Step.
It all comes down to providing riders with options to find the best-fitting bar.
The SL-80 is named after its 80mm reach (horizontal distance from the bar’s stem clamp area to center of the brake perch).
That brings the hoods and control levers back where you want them, while keeping the drops close and usable – all without requiring a shorter stem.
The ergonomic 125mm drop (vertical distance from bar’s stem clamp area to bottom of drops)
places the angled drop position where you can easily reach it while maintaining a neutral wrist angle.
All of that works together to provide comfort and aerodynamic efficiency for when the hammer is down.
The SL-80’s rounded bar top is clip compatible. Made from ultra strong and lightweight 7050 aluminum.
Available in six sizes to meet every rider’s fit needs.
Available in High Polish Black with white logos.

Perfect set of bars for my new custom Burls Ti. Great feel - good for my larger hands. Good service from Merlin.
So much better than the Giant Contact bar it replaced. The usual issue of having to choose to set up the hoods or the drops is no more. Actually, with the bar riding in the drops is more comfortable the hoods, and the hoods aren't uncomfortable. I guess the only small issue is that the bar is a bit smaller, And the tops are not flat
