Zipp Vuka Alumina BTA


The draw: Elegant minimalism

Sometimes less can be more. That’s certainly the case with the Vuka Alumina BTA (between the arms), as Zipp tapped its top designers and engineers in order to meet the challenge put out by longtime sponsored pro, Jordan Rapp, who requested a lightweight, elegant and practical solution for accommodating a bottle and computer mount in the cockpit area. The result is a super high-quality product made of durable, attractive aluminum with precise mounting hardware that integrates with your aerobars as if your bike manufacturer had designed it to be there all along. Bolt on your favorite bottle cage, then flip the cobra-like Garmin-compatible perch fore or aft of the bottle, based on your preferred line of sight, and off you go!
