The Service Course SL-80 handlebar has a design made to offer the most comfortable and efficient positions. Made of 7050 aluminum to be sturdy and lightweight (approx 250 g). It is available in sizes 40, 42, 44 cm.
With its new refined drop shape, the SERVICE Course SL-80 provides comfortable and efficient positions on the tops of bars, brake covers and down on drops. The bar allows a neutral position of the wrist in the falls and a flat transition of the brake cover, even when driving in a more vertical position. This minimizes the need for up rotated bars. Bar drops are also tilted outwards by 4 degrees to reduce wrist tension.
The result is better ergonomics in falls or hoods. That's why we've evolved our pro-proven line of alloy bars based on a steady stream of feedback from installers and the best UCI World Tour drivers.
It all comes down to giving the cyclist options to find the bar that best suits their needs. The SL-80 is named after its 80 mm range (horizontal distance from the bar stem clamp area to the center of the brake hanger). That takes the bells and control levers where you want, keeping the drops closed and usable, all without requiring a shorter stem. The ergonomic drop of 125 mm (vertical distance from the clamp area of the bar power to the bottom of the droplets) places the descent position at an angle where it can be easily reached while maintaining a neutral wrist angle.
All of this works together to provide aerodynamic comfort and efficiency for when the hammer is down.
The SL-80's rounded top bar supports clips. Made of ultra-strong and lightweight 7050 aluminum.
