Service Course 70 XPLR Handlebar

Whether we’re racing across a continent on a loaded bike or riding fire roads on the weekend, the Service Course 70 XPLR gives us the deft handling and ergonomics we need for long rides on any surface, from pavement to gravel to singletrack. A shallower drop combined with the outsweep of the bars provides a stable platform for our most meandering rides.

We’ve seen a lot of flared drop bars come on to the gravel seen lately, and while that outward bend above the brake clamp can be helpful, it often places the hoods uncomfortably inward and angled toward the stem. The 70 XPLR’s sweet spot of a 5-degree flare with the 11-degree outsweep keeps the hoods more in-line with your wrist angle for greater comfort when riding on the hoods for hours on end. Where traditional drop bars force our arms inward to get more aerodynamic in the drops, the XPLR’s 11-degree outsweep puts our wrists at a more natural angle. Like a solid stance for a push-up, the wider drop gives us more stability and confidence when descending or on rough terrain.

Lightweight and durable, the aluminum tubing can withstand your most creative route choices, and with 100mm of clamping area, there’s room for light, bags and computer mounts aplenty to make sure you can find your way back to the car with snacks to spare.

  • A shallow-drop, slightly-flared bar for adventure rides and gravel
  • 11-degree outsweep provides comfortable position for long rides
  • Flattened top section enhances ergonomics for climbing
  • 100mm clamping area has ample room for bags and gadgets

What do you think about this product?



What's the difference between the standard black and black/A2?

The Black/A2 is just a different model year and probably just has a slight graphics change.


Is the width of this bar measured at the tops or at the drops?

Zipp's website says center-to-center, that'd be the drops.

It's at the tops.

Service Course xr 70 XPLR Handlebar

I put a set of these on my touring bike, perfect, they put your levers easy to reach, I set the hoods at correct height and drops are right there. I have shortish arms and not giant hands so their great. I think they will be awesome on my CYCLOCROSS BIKE and on a gravel bike, put hoods where they need to be and you don't have to reach a mile to get on the drops, like the shorter distance between the two (hoods and drops) cool
