Zipp Service Course components: now in silver

Handlebars, stems and seatposts get a brand new look

Zipp is now offering aluminium Service Course components in a silver finish for the first time, giving you the option of a classic/retro look. Up until now, the handlebars, stems and seatposts have been available only in black – and black remains in the range.

Zipp says that it has added the new colour choice simply because “silver stands out amid the sea of stealthy black colour schemes”.

The ‘Nano Blast Silver Anodize finish’ has been added to several existing products, all of them made from 6061 aluminium:

Service Course 70 XPLR handlebar £54

The drops of the XPLR (as in ‘explore’) bar flare outwards by 5° so they’re about 6cm wider than normal for technical gravel/adventure riding.

Service Course 70 Ergo handlebar £54

This road handlebar has a 70mm reach and a 128mm drop, and the top section has a flattened profile that’s designed to fit comfortably in your hand.

This bar also has an ergonomic top section and a shallow (125mm) drop, but the reach is a little longer at 80mm.

The Service Course 80 is a 80mm reach/ 125mm drop design that has proven to be extremely popular over the years.

Service Course Seatpost £50

I like what they did with the new logo, dropping the serif while keeping the shapes that make it instantly recognizable. laugh ​My bike is going to look old though. Lets hope they sell new stickers for old wheels.
