Light, comfortable, and strong.
Using the same tapered diameter as its carbon counterparts, the Zipp Service Course Handlebar goes from 31.8mm at its central clamp down to 24.2mm at the top bend. This tapered diameter lends an intuitive shape for high levels of comfort. Its durable 6061 aluminum construction retains brawny strength at the expense of a few grams over carbon bars. If counting every gram isn't your foremost priority, you'll find these bars to excel in performance without emptying your wallet.
The Ergo version features a 70mm reach and 128mm drop, with a 10-degree ramp angle and 4-degree outsweep. The net effect is a bar that places your shift/brake levers in a high, easily reachable position, without compromising your hand position in the drops. Its dual-radius curve gives you a longer, flatter hand surface that's similar to an anatomic bend, but with a more subtle, less curvy shape. Plus, its ergonomic shaping facilitates comfortable hand placement along the top side.
The traditional version comes with an 80mm reach and 125mm drop, with a 7-degree ramp angle and 4-degree outsweep. This creates a bar with a modest drop with a bit more curve in the transition leading up to the hoods.

Great fitting bar
If you're looking for an aluminum bar that is a good balance between comfort, durability to weight ratio, and price - this is it! The ergo feature is also helpful when solving reach issues.
Flat Tops Are a Favorite
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I'm putting together a second bike for training and this handle bar does the job on a budget when you aren't concerned with weight. The flat top provides nice relief from riding in the hoods or when lugging yourself up a long climb.
The bars are measured C-C just like the tech specs say. I love the amount of reach and drop to these bars as it makes it comfortable to be aero when descending or pushing tempo on the flats.
Superb performance to cost!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've been converted to an ergo fan! I swapped out the service course SL for these. These are half the price, and twice the comfort for me as the SLs. I apparently am not built for this drop type and I also prefer the reach it allows to the levers. It brings them quite a bit closer to the bar. I had my Ultegra levers maxed out on the SLs, and had to back them out about halfway on the ergos. The weight on these is a bit high at 300gs but the cost to reduce that based on the performance to me just isn't there.
Please watch Zipps measurements before you order, some bars are measured C-C, some O-O, some both!!
Is this a centre-to-centre measurement? I want to get a 42 (c-to-c). What size should I get?
See above...last paragraph...
The Zipp Service Course Alloy Handlebar is available in the two aforementioned bends. Each bend option is also available four widths from 40 to 46cm (measured outside-outside).
So a 40cm is 38 center to center. This is verified by experience.
