Item # ZIP000A

Climber-light and sprinter-strong.

When it was first unveiled, the peculiar shape of Zipp's SL Sprint Carbon Stem may have seemed a bit out of place when juxtaposed with traditional, tubular models. Now, assymetrical stems like it are common place because the SL Sprint's shaping and unidirectional carbon construction transmit power with efficient confidence in even the most hectic bunch finales. The faceplate and bolts are titanium, which helps keep the stem in the climber's weight category, despite its sprinting pedigree.

  • Shaped to improve stiffness and power transfer for road sprinters
  • Unidirectional carbon body with titanium hardware for low weight
  • Included insert adapts the stem for 1in steerer tubes

stiff, light, awesome

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This stem is super sexy, stiff, and light. Love this thing.

Very pro-looking stem

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I really like this stem and I use it with my Vuka Sprint aero road bars--a perfect match that really makes the bike's cockpit look formidable, even beautiful. I've no complaints at all with the performance, though I'm not enough of a connoisseur of stems to distinguish unacceptable levels of flex or vibration. So far as I can tell, everything stays exactly where it should and I have no problem sprinting hard.

If there's one criticism that I have, it's the fact that it is extremely difficult to mount a computer on it. No big deal if you have regular road bars, but the airfoil shaped Vuka Sprint bars offer no clean place to mount a computer either so I've had to buy water filter o-rings and superglue them onto the computer's mount to keep everything in place over the top of the stem; however, I hate the positioning because it undoubtedly destroys the aero advantage of the bars. 3T has a similar stem offering that has the ability to have an integrated mount in the faceplate, and I hope that Zipp eventually designs a similar accessory.

Great new design

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Zipp moved the threads from the face plate to the stem this year. This simple change made this stem 1000x better. Last years stem was so hard to torch down you would most likely strip the bolts. Zipp makes a great product and obviously they've learned something and made steps to correct flaws.
