Sarto, Lake, Zipp, Xpedo, Wahoo and Visijax. Yet more of the latest and greatest bike tech from Interbike 2014.
Horizontally mounted BTA (between the arms) hydration systems are aerodynamically faster, period. Triathletes who are constantly in pursuit of faster and more efficient systems have known this for a while now.
Zipp’s new SL-70 Aero is, in every way, a high-performance bar. This new unidirectional carbon handlebar is packed with the innovations for best-in-class fit, ergonomics and aerodynamic performance. With its wing-shaped bar top, the SL-70 Aero features Zipp’s latest bar refinements while building on the trend-setting aero legacy of the VukaSprint.
It sometimes takes days to track down the lucky winners on PEZ, but not today! My call was returned within minutes, as long time PEZ-Fan Tom Work jumped on the news that he’s won the Zipp’s 202 Firecrest carbon clincher wheels from R&A Cycles.
Tucked away in the Arizona desert, The Zipp/Quarq team gave cycling’s top North American journalists (and me) a preseason/release hands on with a few new products for 2013.
Zipp have taken their Firecrest Aero shape down to a “climbers” depth 202. Of the words describing these hoops though, “Hot” ain’t one of em…
Seems like we have more winners than Vegas, and another lucky PEZ-Fan was chosen today! Congratulations to Scott Singbeil of Edmonton Alberta (that’s the Great White North to some of us…) as our winner of the new ZIPP 101 Aluminum Wheels.
Powermeters have long been a chore to setup, maintain, and always demanded a distinct weight penalty. Things are changing though - with the explosion of ANT+ wireless resulting in the fantastic Garmin 705, continued developments in PowerTap hub design, and the completely redesigned Zipp 404s, well, the future is now.
Sitting practically in the shadow of the grandstands of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, PEZ get past the offices for a look at Zipp's R&D, testing and production. It's tech-weenie heaven!
The entries are in and the winner is – David Bridenbaugh of Cary NC, who scores the prize pack of ZIPP’s VumaQuad crankset, 145 Stem, and SLC2 handlebar!! Obviously overwhelmed with joy upon hearing the news, David asked: “What was it I won again…?”
With a new Bar and Stem offering, it’s nice to see the wheel wizards at Zipp spreading out a bit. Pez get a set of OS and standard bars, with stems to match, and run them through the paces…
