The Draw: Superior Comfort without Sacrificing Performance
The Zipp Vuka Clip with Carbon Evo 110 extensions is the Indiana-based speed merchant’s latest entry into the go-fast game. The Evo 110 extensions are a modified S-bend: The grip area sits slightly inward, toward the centerline of the bike, relative to where the forearm rests are positioned. This setup provides a comfortable hand position as it relieves pressure on the wrists and shoulders. Another nice touch is the textured coating found on the grips. We found that even without handlebar tape, this coating provided ample grip to make us feel confidently connected to our bike. The Vuka Clips also provide good adjustability, with numerous possibilities for pad placement and fine-tuning.
