Zipp has set itself a clear goal - to develop the most powerful carbon stem. The SL Sprint is optimized for the stiffness and low weight required by professional racing bike sprinters.
Just as cyclists maximize performance by being as light as possible but as powerful as possible, the SL Sprint stem offers the ideal balance of stiffness and lightness to deliver responsive handling without losing a single watt.
The stem weighs only 1.8 grams per Newton meter of stiffness. How did Zipp do it? The SL Sprint was developed using SRAM's Exogram technology, which is also used for the ultra-light and powerful SRAM RED cranks.
The SL Sprint was developed with feedback from top professionals to meet the relentless demands of Grand Tour sprinters. Zipp also took advantage of the expertise of its groundbreaking carbon stems and thoroughly researched the marketplace for the development of the SL Sprint stem.
The SL Sprint comes with its own headset cap, which is aerodynamically efficient by fitting into the stem. Includes rigid aluminum front panel and steel Torx T25 screws for precise torque measurement and easy adjustment.
