While carbon everywhere is still the dream, there’s something to be said about a durable set of alloy handlebars. Zipp agrees and has launched the new Service Course SL-70, SL-70 Ergo and Service Course 70 Ergo bars and the (well, carbon) Service Course SL 0 and 20-degree seatposts.

We got the skinny on these new bits several months ago and the Service Course SL-70 Ergo bars and Service Course SL 20 seatpost are both in for review on a Niner RLT9. We’ll highlight those two out of this new launch.
