Service Course SL Stem

Zipp's entire Service Course line proves that aluminum still has a place in cycling componentry — it will never be as light as carbon, sure, but it will never be as expensive either, and that's enough of a reason for us to stand behind it. Zipp strikes an admirable balance between cost, weight, and performance with the Service Course SL Alloy Stem, which features a 3D-forged 7075 aluminum construction to give it a mix of superb strength and stiffness inspired by kit built for the peloton.

Both stems in the Service Course line are built in the same tooling, with smooth lines and a newly redesigned faceplate with enough negative space to for easy handlebar orientation. Compared to the pedestrian version, the Service Course SL stem drops some grams with CNC-machining and by replacing the stainless steel Torx bolts with titanium.

  • Lightweight stem that balanced price and performance
  • 3D-forged aluminum construction resists flex
  • Titanium bolts ensure highest strength and lowest weight
  • Four-bolt clamp distributes stress for reduced chance of failure
  • Item #ZIP001X

A stem is a very straightforward part. Seldom does one fail do it's job, but this one does it's job while looking stylish, lean, and clean. Carbon stems have nothing on this unit. The 7-series alloy and ti hardware make it a premium part at 1/3 the cost of carbon at exactly the same modulus (stiffness). Perfect.

Does the job, and does it well!

I've used it several times

This is a great, high quality, lightweight titanium stem. Zipp is always a great option.

Benchmark

As we all know, Zipp makes some of the absolute best carbon road wheelsets in the world. They also make -fantastic-cockpit components. The "Service Course" SL is simply one of the BEST road stems made in the sport -especially for the price. Super high quality (3-D forged, aircraft grade, 7050 aluminum alloy), strong, light weight (Zipp says 135g in size 100mm) ...and... affordable. That is a combination that is hard to beat. In addition, Zipp's Service Course SL stem in their "beyond black" finish is absolutely stunning, one of the best looking road stems on the market today. This is bike jewelry. Install note: I strongly rec the use a quality torque wrench or one of Park's excellent new torque keys ($45) to tighten the bolts down to spec (6 Nm max). Don't over tighten. And you don't need to if you use a torque wrench.

beyond black from the picture it looks like blue, is it black or has a shade of blue?

@maynard - nope, it's definitely black.
