Zipp Vuka Stealth

$1,070, Zipp.com
The draw: Streamlined and adaptable

Achieving a broad range of fit adjustment options usually takes a bunch of hardware that looks clunky and possibly adds wind drag. Zipp found a way to make a bar both fit-flexible and streamlined. The Vuka Stealth boasts a vast amount of adjustability while maintaining great ergonomics, aesthetics and aerodynamics. The bar comes in three sizes. The only downside to this bar is the weight—it is a bit heavier than the others reviewed here, but considering that it includes an integrated stem, a few extra grams is a compromise we can live with.
