Cheat the Wind.
In triathlons and time trials, aerodynamics mean everything and even the smallest reductions, saving watts in drag, pay heavy dividends in increased speed. Aero savings can come in both body position, and the shape of the components themselves. Take your aero to the next level with the Zipp Vuka Integrated Aerobar. Made with Zipp's legendary attention to exacting details and impeccable carbon design, this bar is built to match with a standard 31.8mm road stem and turn your cockpit into an air slicing TT missile.
Zipp constructs the bars with the same Exogram technology found in the super-light and strong SRAM Red cranksets to minimize weight while maximizing stiffness and strength. The two things we want most in a cockpit are reliability and efficient power transfer and this bar has both in spades. The clamp hardware and riser kit ensure stable mounting and offers plenty of positions that you, or your bike fitting expert, can dial in to blend comfort and efficiency.
This bar is compatible with standard road stems and, with a removable center cap placed in front of the stem, adds 5 percent stiffness to the bar and integrates seamlessly with the airfoil, closely mirroring single-piece bar and stem combinations. For aerodynamics, Zipp utilizes a truncated airfoil shape, somewhat akin to a shortened teardrop, that adheres to the UCI's 3:1 ratio requirement. The bar's Rapid Routing internal cable system further reduces drag by routing housing out of the wind with strategically placed 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.
