Hey guys.

I guys im moving from enve to deda on my colnago.

I just installed the Deda zero 100 shallow on my enve stem and everything works great, but I want to go full deda.

On their website they say the Superleggero and Superleggero RS (the two i like) is for carbon handlebar only. Anyone tried to install them on their alu bars? Would just be on the safe side before i order them.

Thanks! :thumbup:

I have not tried Superleggero on an alu bar, but one in the club uses alu bar with superleggero. He does not race, just riding for fun. However, personally, I don't recommend Superleggero, because it's not stiff enough. Mine is 110mm and now it's lying in the box.

I have no issues running a Superleggero stem (140mm) with my Zero 100 Shallow bars, I just wish there was a lighter bar option in the classic Shallow shape

Would be ingesting to see what the logic behind a stem being suitable only for carbon bars is. Or is it a recommendation?

Dunno. It says so on their website.
