Zipp SL-80 Service Course Road Handlebar
Zipp SL-80 Service Course Bars
Rounded bar top is clip compatible Made from ultra-strong and lightweight aluminium 7050 31.8 mm clamp diameter Available in high polish black with white logos Size: 36 cm centre-to-centre Zipp Service Course SL-80 Handlebar provides comfortable and efficient positions on the bar tops, brake hoods or down in the drops. The bar allows a neutral wrist position on the drops and a flat brake-hood transition for the athlete even while riding with a more upright position. This minimizes the need for up-rotated bars. The bar's drops are angled outward by 4 degrees to reduce wrist strain. The result is better ergonomics in the drops or on the hoods. That's why we've evolved our pro-proven line-up of alloy bars based on a steady stream of feedback from fitters and top pros on teams including Omega Pharma - Quick-Step. It all comes down to providing riders with options to find the best-fitting bar. The SL-80 is named after its 80 mm reach (horizontal distance from the bar's stem clamp area to centre of the brake perch). That brings the hoods and control levers back where you want them, while keeping the drops close and usable - all without requiring a shorter stem. The ergonomic 125 mm drop (vertical distance from bar's stem clamp area to bottom of drops) places the angled drop position where you can easily reach it while maintaining a neutral wrist angle. All of that works together to provide comfort and aerodynamic efficiency for when the hammer is down. The SL-80's rounded bar top is clip compatible. Made from ultra strong and lightweight 7050 aluminium. 7 degree ramp angle for a smooth transition from the tops to the hoods. Available in high polish

Ribble Cycles - since 1897!
Ribble Cycles are one of the oldest bike shops in the world, starting in 1897 in Preston, Lancashire, and are perhaps best known for their exceptional value own brand road bikes.
In 1987 (just the 90 years after forming!) they started a mail order side to their business, which helped them to expand - and as per the rest of their competition, launched their website in 2001. In order to deal with the increase in business, the company moved to Bamber Bridge, which resulted in the closure of their Watery Lane shop, and eventual upsizing to yet another warehouse in Leach Place.
In terms of actual cycling, Ribble have historically sponsored some of the most iconic riders in UK and world cycling history; Chris Boardman and Bradley Wiggins have both successfully competed on Ribble bikes. Other noted riders include the ladies Barcelona 92 Time trial team, the 1990's RT Italia race team and Steph Forrester at the Sydney Olympics. In short, they like to support the sport that they trade in!
