Forget About Flex
Sprinters love it. The women of Team Exergy TWENTY12 race it. ITU triathletes use it with aero extensions like the VukaClip™.
The SLC2™ satisfies even the most demanding riders with a massively stiff handlebar that's clip-on compatible and weighs just 195 g (Short & Shallow drops, 42 cm). To get there, we started out by keeping more than 60 percent of the bar width at the same 31.8 mm diameter as the clamp area. Then we strategically redesigned the carbon-laminate structure, adding strength around the clamp to handle clip-on extensions and stiffness to handle sprinting loads.
Despite its stout characteristics, the SLC2 cuts no corners in terms of ride quality due to Zipp®'s vibration absorbing VCLC™ technology. The only Zipp carbon drop bar designed for clip-on extensions, the SLC2 is the perfect complement to the VukaClip with your choice of VukaExtensions.

The Racing Post December 2008
It's a shame that I let the perception of the safety of carbon bars and stem keep me from purchasing them earlier. Now that I've ridden with them, I wish I had acquired them a long time ago.
