Has anyone ridden the new Zipp SL-70 aero bar yet? Any thoughts on it?

What do you wan't to know? I got a friend who has one and my other friend has the vukasprint, i think it's just a redesign :) But they are both very very nice :)

Had a vukasprint, and looked at an sl-70. Decided against the sl-70 because there's no option for traditional bend. Other than the bend, the bars looked very, very similar. Oh, Zipp changed their measuring between the two bars. Vuka (and everything else they made up to that point) was measured outside to outside. The SL-70 (and I assume all their other bars?) are now measured center to center.

I am curious how the stiffness of the SL-70 Aero Carbon is. I have heard some guys complain about the Vukasprint being a little flexy.

I haven't noticed any abnormal flex with mine. They feel great and of course look great! From riders who I know that have tried both, the SL-70 is noticeable improvement.
