Zipp Intros Stealth Beyond Black Components, New Seatposts and Handlebar
For 2012, Zipp Speed Weaponry will offer a new Beyond Black finish (foreground) available on all Service Course SL parts, which gives them a stealthy laser etched logo rather than their standard white (background). They’ll include anodized dark gray Ti bolts, too. Same price as regular. The color scheme conveniently matches up with SRAM’s Red Black group so you can put together a totally murdered out ride without ever leaving the SRAM family.
Beyond colors, they have a new short-reach bar and several new and revised seat posts, right after the break…
The new Service Course CSL contour short reach handlebar. It has just a 70mm reach and 128mm drop on all four widths. Weight is 290g. It has a flat top like their regular Carbon Contour SL bar, and it’s available in a Beyond Black option as well.
New 0mm offset seatposts for the SC and SC SL lines (center two posts).
The SL Speed is an all new carbon seatpost with 20mm offset (right hand side on both pics above). It comes in at a claimed 185g for the 330×27.2, also available in a 31.6 diameter. Top caps are available in white or red, but they’re purely cosmetic.
Combined with their long, rounded top clamp, all of their posts offer about 20mm of horizontal adjustment because it has a lot of rearward support for the seat rail.
