Service Course SL-80 Handlebar
You could pay top dollar for carbon bars and hope they don't break when you crank into a sprint or take a tumble, or you could trust your first-place finish and cockpit durability to the 7050 aluminum of Zipp's Service Course SL-80 Handlebar. They weigh only 60g more than Zipp's comparable carbon bars, and have a relatively short 80mm reach that makes the drops more accessible without needing a shorter stem, which can make the bike twitchy. The drop is also a moderate 125mm, so you don't have to be a circus performer to use them comfortably, and the rounded top of the bars provides a comfortable platform for your hands without torqueing your wrists.

Awesome bars, with great ergonomics
- I've put it through the wringer
Thats right, I said ergonomics, and they aren't even the "ergo" bars. I bought the 46cm bars because I have broad shoulders and was expecting these to be more traditionally shaped, but the drops flair out slightly, making room for your knees when your sprinting out of the saddle, but most importantly the lever hoods are slightly turned in to take some pressure of your wrists on the longer rides.
