Currently running Zipp SL70 aero in 42.

Is there others out there that would be lighter and yet stiff and sexy looking?

PRO VIBE AERO SL +1.
My 38 weighs 203g on the scale, so the paint is 8g as it's claimed 195g. It's not the lightest aero bar but it's very stiff. 3T aeronova LTD is several grams lighter, but feels like noodles.

well i'm debating between a 40 or 42. right no i have the 42, but my shoulders are always feeling tensed.. so not sure if 42 is too wide? i put the handlebar on top my shoulders to see if it fit, so i would think a 42 would work. but maybe going 40 would be lighter? :D

for the PRO VIBE AERO SL, any one know if it's measured center to center or?
