Hello! Right now I'm thinking about buying an aero handlebar, but I'm not sure whether to buy a Zipp SL70 aero or an ENVE SES Aero. What do you recommend?

Enve. The newer graphics are much nice too.

The major difference is the flare from hoods to drops. If you want to try a really narrow hood position go with the Enve, if you don't go with the Zipp.

They are pretty different.
Clamp area: Zipp provide a lot more, you can mount accesseries. Enve extend the aero section right close to stem claming spot.

Zipp state size in C-C on hood, it flare 4 degrees.
So a Size 40 Zipp is 40cm on hood and ~41.5cm in drop.

Enve state size (of the SES aero) in C-C in drop. it flare 12 gegrees.
So a Size 42 Enve is 37.5cm on hood and 42cm in drop.

As it is very different, it's pretty easy to select base on size you want.

PS. another option,
Specialized Aero Fly, size 42 is 42cm on hood and 42cm in drop, no flare. Also have no space to mount any accessery like the Enve.

I had back to back cracked Vision Metron 5D integrated bars on two different bike in a matter of weeks. Both bars were virtually new. This morning I asked for a refund and ordered the new Env SES aero bar and new aero stem. Unfortunately the stem wont is backordered until late July.
