Zipp unveils new Vuka Clip, new look for bars, stems, seatposts and extensions


Zipp’s new component offerings are designed with function, simplicity, and style top of mind. The Zipp Vuka Clip is redesigned to provide new levels of adjustability, affordability, and easy setup. Many of our best-selling bars, stems, seatposts, and aero extensions also have a new look.

Redesigned Vuka Clip – New Levels of Adjustability, Affordability and Easy Setup

With its all-new design, the Zipp Vuka Clip maintains its groundbreaking range of adjustability while simplifying setup of clip-on aerobars. Based on feedback from pro bike fitters and cyclists alike, every aspect has been rethought and redesigned. Offered in a modern and stealthy bead- blast black finish to match the new options in our carbon and Alumina extensions, the Vuka Clip is bundled with a choice of six different 22.2mm extension options. The Vuka Clip’s 31.8mm clamp is compatible with the Zipp Vuka Alumina Base Bar and the Vuka Bull, and any other road, time trial, or triathlon bars rated to accept a clip-on.

Adjustability is, of course, of prime importance. The new Vuka Clip allows for pad adjustment up to 50mm behind or ahead of the base bar. Pads can be set as narrow as 104mm for low mount, 140mm for high mount, and as wide as 280mm on center between rests. Paired with Zipp Evo extensions, the new trend of placing the hands narrower than the elbow can easily be achieved. Above and below bar versions are both offered. Risers can be used on the above-bar system in 5, 10, 25, and 50mm heights to achieve proper positioning.

Setup is simpler than ever before, with more accessible bolt heads than the previous version. The extension clamp widens to allow 4mm housing to pass through, so clip position can be swapped without re- cabling the entire bike. Pad length has been decreased as well based on customer feedback, for increased comfort.
