The Service Course SL-88 is the traditional road racer’s bar. The classic round drop shape has been refined based on input from modern fitters while retaining the familiar feel and proven ergonomics of a traditional round road bar.
The SL-88 allows the athlete a “long and low” position in the drops. Also, the ends of drops provide a horizontal flat position for the rider to rest straight down upon. This versatility comes from the bar’s longer 88mm reach (the horizontal distance from the bar’s stem clamp area to center of the brake perch) and deeper 130mm drop (vertical distance from bar’s stem clamp area to bottom of drops).
In addition, the bar’s 14° ramp angle (the slope of the bar from the curve of the tops to the brake perch) provides a smooth transition to the brake hoods for a comfortable ergonomic hand position on the hoods. Crafted from 7050 aluminum, this bar is lightweight and durable. Drops are angled outward by 3 degrees to reduce wrist strain. The SL-88 is clip compatible.
The Service Course SL-88 comes in three sizes - 40, 42, 44cm (Center-to-Center). Available in High Polish Black with white logos or Beyond Black.
