When it comes to handlebars, tried and true aluminum remains the material of choice for many pros. In part, that’s because their bikes have to meet a minimum weight requirement. But that means aluminum bars such as the Service Course® SL have to meet the fit, durability and performance standards of teams such as Team Exergy TWENTY12 and Cannondale prepared by CyclocrossWorld.com.
The Service Course SL is produced using our proprietary ZTL-71 alloy and intricate internal butting processes to achieve a weight of 285 g (44 cm) with superior strength and rigidity. It features a classic look with round cross-sections throughout and is available in the same comfortable Short & Shallow or Traditional Bend shapes as our carbon bars. What's more, the drops are angled outward by 2 degrees to reduce wrist strain.
Every piece in the Service Course SL line is available in the standard gloss black with white logos, as well as a new Beyond Black color scheme with laser-etched black logos for a stealthy look.

Fantastic value. Positions the levers quite far in front of the stem, so quite a stretched position vs some bars. The traditional curve model does have a very slight ergo straight on the drops rather than being totally curved, but this is very slight. Fantastic build quality.
Great bars only negative is no indent for cables. They used to have them! Seems like a backward step, but the bar quality is very good. Plenty of pros use them.

Fantastic shapeed bar. The shallow and short format allows me to drop with a new confidence of control and stability. The horizontal lower section is fully accessible.
Con? Bought a 44cm width having expected that to be Centre to Centre. These are 44 outside to outside so are narrower than I am used to.
Really nicely made bar, this is my first road bike so don't have much to bench mark this against but it is light, stylish, comfortable and very well made so I am very happy with this purchase.
I've now got three bikes with these bars on. After years of being convinced that at 6'4" tall, I should be on big, deep handlebars I've suddenly realised short and shallow is absolutely the way to go. Set the levers slightly higher up on the drops and it creates a fantastic flat part of the bar/lever to ride stretched out for long periods of time. The beauty of the shallow depth is that prolonged periods on the drops can be sustained.
My experience of Zipp is one of complete confidence. The quality of these bars is superb, the graphics around the clamping area - so important for accurate position setting are perfect.
Ultimately, handlebars are a personal choice. But for me these are a great product, and one that is safety critical to boot. I have complete confidence in these.
Simple but top quality bar. Shape of the drops will always be a personal choice but suits me well. Plenty of room if you have big hands.

Well made great looking bar for small hands. Paired with a Zipp SL stem looks good. With the best price and fast free delivery from merlin makes it all the more of a bargain
Very light and outstanding value given the weight and stiffness. Note when purchasing Zipp measures their bars outside to outside.
Looks great with the matching high gloss stem.
Prudcuct looks great and good price again .fast service really helpfully staff
Top quality bars at a bargain 'Merlin' price
Easy to fit and adjust, very stiff but also comfy, Looks superb with a very high quality finish. way better than i could of thought.
Overall design of the drop section means you can actually use the drops for long periods of time with out discomfort. Helping with the all important aero position.
Top class product
