Will this stem fit a cervelo s5 aero bar?
It will work with any handlebar that has a 31.8mm clamp diameter, which covers most handlebars that you’ll see speced on road bikes these days. If you're not sure, feel free to shoot me some pictures of your handlebar, and I'd be happy to verify!
You can reach me at email@example.com. Thanks!
This is the *new* Zipp SL Sprint carbon stem (with new stealth graphics).
You buy this stem because it is lightweight and super strong (and for its good looks). Great for road use of course. But also great for crit and sprint use because the 78º angle gives a slightly lower, more aggressive riding position compared to the more commonly found 84º rise. And good god, this stem is beautiful.
Anyway, no one makes a better aero carbon road stem. American company/design. Great stuff.
By the way, Zipp uses torx fasteners because they are "simply a better bolt." As Zipp explains, "They are more durable (strip less). And they provide more accurate torque readings."
Install note: This stem is a work of carbon art. Please use a quality torque wrench (or one of Park's excellent new torque keys @ $45) to tighten the bolts (cross X) to spec (6 Nm max).
If you have a carbon bar, add a swipe of Finish Line "Fiber Grip" ($7/tube). Don't over tighten. And you don't need to if you use a torque key and grip paste.
