Description

With its new-generation 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 finish to match the new options in our 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, the Vuka Bull, Service Course and Service Course SL drop bars, and any other road, time trial, or triathlon bars rated to accept a clip-on.

Adjustability is, of course, of prime importance, so the Vuka Clip allows for pad adjustment up to 50 mm behind or ahead of the centre 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 centre between armrests. Paired with Zipp Evo extensions, the new fit 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. Risers are sold separately and cannot be stacked.

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.

Technical Information

Zipp chooses Torx®-head bolts for its stems and aero bars – why? It’s simply a better bolt:

  • Won’t easily strip.
  • Provide more accurate torque readers.
  • Are durable.

It comes down to the way the tool head interacts with the bolt. Common hex tools tend to strip the bolt head if the bolt is over torqued. This is especially true with lightweight bolts. Zipp wanted to be able to use a lightweight bolt with reliable performance. Bolts on stems and aero bars are critical to safety – having a reliable bolt is crucial.

The Torx® head is more robust than hex-head bolts and will not easily strip. Torx® fasteners also were designed for use with a torque-limiting wrench (torque wrench), which is needed to achieve the precise torque reading required for proper installation.

We chose a bolt size – T25 – for that was best suited for our stems. The standard Torx tool head for an M5 bolt is a T25, although sometimes a T20 or T27 is used. The T25 is becoming a go-to bolt in the bicycle industry. It’s been used on disc brakes for years and also is in use on chainring bolts, derailleurs and shifters. What’s more, the T25 tool is common in bike shops or hardware stores and is readily available alone or in multi-tool sets. For your convenience, Zipp includes a T25 wrench with all stems and aero bars.
