For Zipp stems, this is a clean, flexible way to mount a computer and a front light or camera. It incorporates a asymmetric and reversible faceplate, giving you high & low mounting options, helpful for clearing any cables/hoses at the front of the bike. Its arm swings up/down to adjust the angle of the computer, and of course the GoPro mount enables you to separately adjust where the light or camera points. Its arm is also reversible in case you want the GoPro on top for some reason.
Resolving various complaints in other reviews:
Length: It accommodates the Edge 1030 nicely, leaving just enough room to reach the buttons on its lower edge. Longer than needed for smaller computers. Zipp probably wanted to avoid offering a variety of lengths.
Weight: It's made of 7575 aluminum so at 79g it feels heavier than Garmin's plastic Out Front mount (47g). But it eliminates the stem faceplate (20g), and includes a GoPro mount (21g GoPro adapter required on the Garmin), for a net added weight of 38g, essentially the same as the Garmin long or short adapters. Either way, the 23g handlebar mount for my Lezyne light is eliminated.
Cost: $xx vs $xx+ cost of a GoPro adapter for the Garmin, not a huge difference. Plus how much is it worth to get a tidier look?
Scuffing: 1/4 turn mount does not scuff the bottom of my Edge 1030.
Computer and light should be secured to the handlebar to avoid damage in a crash. Garmin makes a nice elastic tether for this, supplied with the Edge, also available separately.
I have bought two of these mounts and absolutely love them. I got rid of both my Garmin mounts . This mount allows your bike to be symmetrical instead of the mount hanging from one side. Great quality and perfectly built to be attached to the stem. Beautiful and practical.
Downsides are that it's pricey, also you will need a torque wrench and the stem from the same vendor obviously.
This is a great clean solution for Zipp stem owners to clean up their cockpit. Added bonus that it helps in getting those handlebars straight, because it's so long you can definitely tell when they're not. It's slightly heavy, but sturdy.
It's very expensive for what you get, it's heavy, and the front end sticks out a mile from the stem -- much further than I want it to. Also, it marred and scratched the mounting surface of my Wahoo Elemnt Bolt computer just installing and removing the Bolt a few times. On the plus side, the computer feels very solidly attached to the mount. I was going to use it with Bolt on top and Bontrager Flare light on bottom (using an adapter), but I'm going with a K-Edge mount instead. I wouldn't recommend this mount.
4/5 I like it, don't necessarily love it, though. 3/5 Reasonable price, probably 4 stars if you catch it on sale. Overall, the mount is nice if you use the beefy Sprint SL stem and actually want your device to be centered. OCD-ers rejoice. The actual mount arm piece is a bit thick, though. Not sure it needed to be. Also, the finish is matte alum, and while it doesn't really clash with the polished carbon stem, it doesn't exactly match either. Would love to see a polished version. Taking it out of the packaging, it feels "heavy" but once mounted you don't notice the few extra grams despite it's size as noted above.
The mount itself is good and built well. However, it's extremely overpriced and Zipp doesn't sell replacement half-turn inserts for the unit. So if you have a crash and break the plastic half-turn insert, they suggest you buy a whole new overpriced faceplate. Terrible support, terrible company, don't buy it.
using it on my cervelo aspero gravel bike, integrated system is awesome no issues. will fit most size bike computers.i dont understand the complaints of these people it is a well made and thought off product if you buy the k-edge mounts it is similarly priced!if u have a ZIPP stem get this!
Replaced the previous cheap mount with this Zipp mount. I wanted quality and security for my Garmin 1030 and I got it! Thereï¿½s a saying, ï¿½you get what you pay forï¿½. So far Iï¿½m very pleased and would highly recommend.
I really like this mount for my Garmin 1030 and use it on my Colnago C60 and World Cup. Easy to see and change positions and I do not have to deal with it moving like with bar mounted mounts.
