A base that wont break the bank.
Zipp knows that you need to lay solid groundwork when it comes to your cockpit, which is why its engineers put thought and thoroughness into the design of the Buka Alumina Basebars. Aiming to offer you stability, efficiency, and the versatility you want to run the perfect aero bars for your riding, the Vuka Alumina bars are carefully crafted to let you dial in the perfect position with compatibility to partner up with an array of different clips and extensions — all the while keeping the price nice and petite so you don't have to blow your upgrade budget on a pair of bars.
Zipp modeled the Alumina after its VukaBull, using the proven 6066-series aluminum instead of carbon fiber. Compared to the VukaBull, the Alumina weighs in around 40g heavier (250g), and it doesn't feature the same airfoil shape or drop option. However, at roughly one-third of the price, and with only a minimal weight penalty, it provides you with a value-oriented base bar that's still exceptionally versatile.
Zipp's engineers made the Alumina as sleek as possible, incorporating internal cable routing and smooth, natural bends that form the five-degree upswept hand grips. Borrowed from the VukaBull, this design promotes a natural wrist position for climbing and sprinting. The bar's wide mounting area provides an array of extension positions, allowing you to find the most optimal fit for your riding style. Zipp also designed the Alumina to be compatible with all current drivetrain systems and plug-in style brake levers. It's optimized for use with the Vuka Alumina Clip, but it's also compatible with the VukaClip and most other clips on the market.
