Zipp Vuka Aero

The draw: Fast meets practical
The new Zipp Vuka Aero bar borrows many of the features from one of our favorites, the Zipp Vuka Stealth. The Vuka Aero is a bit simpler, featuring a traditional 31.8mm handlebar clamp rather than an integrated stem, which allows greater frame compatibility. Zipp’s heritage is in aerodynamics, so it’s no surprise that the stem faceplate is protected from the airflow with a removable fairing. This bar is extremely adjustable; the arm rests can be moved in every direction. Be sure to check out the very cool fit calculator on Zipp’s website to see just how this bar can adapt to your fit and your frame.
