Light weight, comfort, and strength: the SL-70 Ergo is the ultimate handlebar for long days in the saddle. It improves upon the flat bar top shape of its predecessor, the Contour SL bar, but also with numerous modern features sought after by riders and pro bike fitters.
The SL-70 Ergo sports a 70 mm reach and 128 mm drop. The short reach has been a popular choice in recent years, as it allows bike fitters flexibility in achieving a comfortable position without sacrificing steering control. The drop now utilizes a variable radius, allowing for multiple hand positions and deeper movement into the drop. As a result, reach to the brake lever is shorter. A 3° backsweep on the flat tops keeps the wrist in a comfortable position, essential for long days on pavement or gravel, while the 10° ramp angle provides a smooth transition to modern shifter hoods. Brake and shifter housing is elegantly hidden along the underside of the bar.
Utilizing the same SRAM Exogram carbon molding technology found in the ultra-light and stiff SRAM RED crankset, and the Zipp SL Speed and SL Sprint stems, the SL-70 Ergo weighs only 205 g (42 cm c-c), but is strong and durable enough for the demands of aggressive cyclocross and gravel racing.
