UpFromOne: I found one on ebay.. listed new. but seller said it's 210g for the 44cm. fake model maybe? http://goo.gl/HIfYRh" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

UPDATE: buyer beware - got confirmation from Zipp that this is not authentic so no warranty.

We are uncertain about this bar – graphics look good.
BTW the seller has been reported to e-bay before for infractions – is not an authorized Zipp dealer, and you will not get warranty or crash replacement benefits.

Another vote for Zipp SLC2 compact with the vibration technology. Big bang for the buck, and my 46cm well under 200g.


Zipp list them as 195g for the 42cm bars. Have you cut them to get this weight as I'm interested if they are under 200g in that size?

Some pics of my zipp bars, I'm pretty sure they're genuine:

sorry I already mounted the brakes where I want them, and not gonna take em off just to do a scale shot.
these 46s (44 c-c) are a hair under 200g. just a good layup i think.

elviento: I don't have experience with anything but a few aluminum bars and my current Bontrager carbon bars, which feel a bit flexy in comparison. Does anyone have suggestions for lightweight bars that don't give up stiffness to achieve a number?

3T Ergonova Team on all my bikes (but CX and TT) and loving them. The new ones have deeper grove for the cables. Weight - 190 grams for 42cm. Super solid and getting excellent reviews from the riders, racers and testing labs. Love the flat bar sections and compact profile

I have the same, mine is 205 gram for 42 cm, but still a lot less than the PRO version which was 313 grams for 44 cm

Happy withy my 3T Ergonova also. I'm looking to move maybe to Deda's Presa. It is supposed to be 210g at 42.

Personally I run the shallowest drop/reach possible, like the 3T and Presa and other carbon compacts. They are typically all around 200g...and I don't find them flexy as a sprinter. They help take the sting out of my Scott Foil front end somewhat...that is really the reason I went to carbon bars.

I'm personally looking for a new stem/bar combo. I prefer to have the same brand cockpit. So finding a carbon shallow handlebar with an 8-10 deg stem is proving difficult.

My wife just got some Thomson KFC bars for her cx bike this season and loves them. Well under claimed weight and stuff enough that I would use them. At $250 retail, they are a good deal as well.

My current fav are the pro vibe carbon round bars. LOVE them.

I've had good luck with 3t rotundo team bar as well. (And I have one for sale in the classifieds ;) )
