Bought these as part of a rebuild project. First set of carbon bars for me. I expected some vibration dampening but over Texas finest chipseal I didnt really notice a difference and perhaps the aero profile is part of that. With only 70mm reach I did kind of miss the extra length of bar to support my wrist-forearm when aggressively riding the hoods. Moving shifters further down the clamping area made an uncomfortable transition to the hoods so I left mine up near top of clamping area. Im sure this is a very preferential thing though but ideally I think Id like to go back to 80 reach. Cable running is a pure joy! While clearly optimized for SRAM, my DA9k shifter and brake cables surprisingly both fit with a little effort through the slot on the inside of the bar. I was shocked! And no fishing out by the stem- just exited without issues! Nice clean look- I run bar tape only to the corners leaving tips nude carbon. Its a nice matte color. I dont run gloves - can get a bit slippery with sweaty palms but cleanup is a nice 20 second wipe down so Im staying the course for now. Overall a very nice piece of kit.
have use a fsa wing compact on several bikes. just built up a CANYON AEROAD and felt an aero bar would be good. did not want a barstem combo do to my personal finickiness re set up. I opted for the Zipp SL-70 Aero Carbon Handlebar for it's aero design, weight, ergonomics and road abortion attributes. I am not disappointed with the bars. the geometry is almost identical to the fsa's I am used to which was a primary reason for my choice. these are the first carbon bars I have used to date.
I wanted aero bars for awhile, but held off because they're expensive and my regular bars were fine. I finally made the switch and I'm so glad I did. These bars (paired with Zipp stem) feel incredibly solid and are extremely comfortable. Really enjoying them. Wish I'd switched earlier.
