When Aerodynamics Get Personal
In cycling's constant struggle against physical and mental limits, you need to find the ideal setup for the most important piece of equipment: you. But the fastest position that balances aerodynamics, power output and comfort can be elusive. That’s why Zipp® created the VukaAero. It’s a full-carbon integrated aerobar that optimizes the aerodynamics of the bar itself while allowing the widest possible range of adjustment.
To fine-tune your fit, the VukaAero is the only integrated aero bar that allows four axes of adjustment of the extensions: fore-aft, vertical, rotational and angular. The armrests may be spaced at three standard widths or a multitude of positions with the optional wings. Integrated full-carbon brake levers mimic the position, shape and even the grippy texture of standard brake hoods.
The VukaAero does away entirely with the drag-inducing clamps and bolts that protrude from other fully adjustable aero bars. Internal compression sleeves secure each extension with a single hollow bolt that’s also the point of exit for the internally routed shifter cable. The VukaAero’s base bar can be rotated /- 2.5 degrees without a noticeable effect on aerodynamics.
It measures 42 cm, weighs 750 g (without extensions), and is compatible with any of our three VukaExtensions (straight, ski-tip, chicane) or VukaShift extensions (chicane) (available in three versions to fit Zipp® VukaR2C™, SRAM® R2C and most Shimano® shifters). Extensions are NOT included with the product.
There are two incompatible versions of the brake lever. The early version did not have a return spring and has a notch just ahead of the pivot hole. (see alternative view for comparative image).
Note: Not compatible with Shimano® Dura-Ace 7900 brake calipers. Not compliant with the UCI's 3:1 aspect ratio rule.
