Zipp Vuka Alumina

The draw: Expansive fit adjustment

These are the most customizable aerobars that we have ever seen, but with this comes a bit of complexity. The armrests are large and have a nice shape to
them. Their adjustment range is incredible in all directions. The extensions are interchangeable, and Zipp offers a wide variety of shapes. The best feature of these aerobars is that the armrest height above the basebar is tremendously adjustable; It can sit more than four inches above the basebar, reclaiming a bike with aggressive geometry into something much more realistic for many riders. With their massive adjustability, these bars are a bike fitter’s best friend.
