For those looking to build the ultimate go-fast machine, Zipp has a new option for your base. Not your base miles, those are still up to you. But if you want a new option for your base bar, the updated Zipp Vuka Bull might be worth a look.
With a complete redesign, the new Vuka Bull carbon base bar borrows the CFD-proven aerodynamic wing profile of the SL-70 Aero drop bar. It also features new graphics that will perfectly match the new look of Zipp’s wheels.
Now offering a 20mm rise, the bar is also designed to be flipped which provides a 20mm drop as well. This should help riders get even lower while on the brakes while still keeping arm rests where needed. Alternatively, it gives riders the option to have a slightly higher hand position. The bars are narrower as well – now measuring 38cm center to center instead of 40cm.
The bars offer 120mm of clamp width for aerobar adjustability, and now feature Zipp’s Rapid Routing cable exits which allow the cables to be routed through the stem clamping area for frames with hidden routing.
Claimed weight for the bar is 210g +/- 5%, and they will sell for $237.
