In triathlons and time trials, aerodynamics are everything and even the smallest reductions in drag can pay off in big dividends of increased speed. Get streamlined with the Zipp Vuka Integrated Aerobar. Made with Zipp's legendary attention to detail and impeccable carbon design, this bar is built to match with a standard road stem and turn your cockpit into an air slicing TT missile.
Zipp starts by borrowing the Exogram technology found in the super-light and strong SRAM Red cranksets to minimize weight while maximizing stiffness and strength. This capitalizes on two qualities we look for in our cockpit kit: reliability and efficient power transfer. The clamp hardware and riser kit make for secure mounting and a customizability that doesn't privilege aerodynamics over comfort.
The big news that sets this bar apart from other super aerodynamic setups is its compatibility with everyday road stems. By incorporating a removable center cap that sits neatly in place to reduce drag and reinforce the bar stiffness, Zipp fashions this bar to pair with almost any stem while still pushing the limits of aerodynamics.
Specific to the shape, that center cap provides a seamless transition between the bar and stem that closely mirrors single-piece bar and stem combinations. For aerodynamics, Zipp utilizes a truncated airfoil shape, somewhat akin to a shortened teardrop, that still adheres to the UCI's 3:1 ratio requirement. The bar's Rapid Routing internal cable system further reduces drag by moving cables under the surface with strategically places exit ports for ease of installation.
The Vuka Integrated Aerobar comes packaged with a base bar, extension clamps, armrest clamps, risers (two each of 5mm, 10mm, 25mm, and 50mm), Vuka armrest pads, Vuka armrest and steel hardware. Please note that extensions and stem are not included with the Vuka Integrated Aerobar.
