I have a extra new Deda Superzero bar in size 42 that came in right ar 220gs so not to bad, if it will work for ya.
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?
I belive Deda Superzero bars are measured outside to outside so a 42 is more like a 40, and this 42 I have weighed less that my 40, not sure why ???

I have Pro Vibe Aero (non SL) bar and I wouldn't say it was "stiff". When sprinting (on a 2017 BMC roadmachine 01) it has some noticeable flex to it in a way that the chinese integrated bar on my Canyon ultimate does not. That's really just a first impression and it's more noticeable when sprinting on a trainer than out on the road.

However the comfort is also noticeably better on the Pro handlebar too and I'm very happy with my choice of bar. But unfortunately it's hard to get back 8 fold reduction in beam stiffness you get by halving the beam depth, which is why a narrow(er) section aero bar like the Pro is always going to be a bit bendy, or heavy.

Thanks guys.. since I currently have the zipp sl70 aero, I love it just not the weight but mostly the logo is distracting.

Don’t think I can remove it without damaging it?

I've got the superzeros as well. Same thing, measures from outside to outside. Thins you up an extra 10mm. www.starbike.com has the best pricing hands down for the Deda bars.

I just ordered the Metron 4D's from CrC in a size 42 for 119.00usd. I think they still have some here- https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/vis ... prod190306
Great buy for these.

I'll weigh them when they come in. According to Fairwheel bikes the 4D is supposed to be the stiffest (stiffer than Enve) carbon aero bar amongst those tested in this article. It's a really good article for getting exact measurements for the bars before you buy them -

Enjoy the read :)
