Years ago, it all went black. Not in a physical sense, but in terms of bicycle components. Whether anodized aluminum or carbon fiber, black or dark colors have remained popular on bike builds for some time. But everything comes back around again, right?
If you’re looking to add a classy touch to finish off your build, then check out the new Silver Service Course aluminum line from Zipp. Along with the Nano Silver Blast anodized color change, there are a few updates to the cockpit group to keep it as an excellent option while keeping the price down.
Available in four different options, silver handlebars will be offered in the Service Course 80, 70 Ergo, 80 Ergo, and the 70 XPLR. The 70 & 80 Ergo have a 70 and 80mm reach respectively, and 128mm or 125mm drop. Ergo bars have a flat top plus a 3° backsweep for comfort, while the standard 80 bar has a round top and more traditional profile.
The Service Course 70 XPLR adds a wider, flared profile with a 70mm reach, 3° backsweep at the tops, and a 5° flare and 11° outsweep at the drops. All of the Silver Service Course bars are priced at $55 each.
To get that matching look, pair those bars with the Silver Service Course stem. Equipped with a new faceplate and body geometry for increased stiffness and hassle free installation, the stems are offered in +/-6° and 25° rise models with a 31.8mm clamp to match the bars, and are priced at $56.
Finally, the Service Course Seatpost will round out the silver package. Available in 0 or 2mm offsets, the posts have a simple yet effective two bolt clamp and come in 27.2 & 31.6mm diameters with a 350mm length.
