There’s nothing worse than a bad bike fit, except maybe an ill-fitting kit. More on that later…

Look, we get it, buying a bike online can be a hassle and we want to make it easy for you. This is why we guarantee your bike will fit you straight out of the box when you purchase it using our Virtual Bike Fit Guarantee.

Here’s how it works:

Connect with one of our Rider Support Team via online chat, book yourself in or select Virtual Bike Fit from our catalogue. When you use our VBFG to purchase a new bike, we’ll guarantee total size satisfaction. If your bike isn't right for you, you can return it, at no cost, within 30 days of delivery for an exchange, full refund, or Bicicletta store credit. If you don’t use our VBFG program, don't worry, you can still return your bike in 15 days for an exchange or refund. 

So, when your bike arrives, take a ride around the block on a dry day to get a feel for it. If you’re not vibing, box it back up and send it back to us. No cost.

Bikes determined at our discretion to be clean and in the original condition will be eligible for a full refund. Bikes must be returned in the original box and/or packaging and in original condition. Bikes with any damage beyond normal wear and tear (such as minor nicks, scratches, dirt on the tires, etc.) are not eligible for return.

So, before you decide to go for a serious rip, please make sure this is the bike for you. If you aren't sure, you can always reach out to our Rider Support Team via online chat.

All roads—gravel, dirt, tarmac, whatever—leads to the need for greater comfort and control. Zipp' answer—true to our fit-first philosophy for handlebar design—is the Service Course SL 70 XPLR™. The bar' moniker, XPLR, exemplifies the desire to explore the world with an expanded definition of cycling on a drop-bar bicycle… from paved roads onto gravel, mud, dirt, and even single track.

Crafted from light weight and tough 7050 aluminum, Service Course SL 70 XPLR help you go faster by placing your body, starting with your hands, in an optimal “comfort zone” position for hours of rough riding over mixed terrain. Today' riders demand a few things out of their cockpit, whether they are doing a two hour training ride from home or a 200+-mile gravel adventure: comfort, control, and the ability to carry what they need. We met these needs by creating a bar with shallow and wide drops, specifically focusing on two crucial metrics—outsweep and flare.

  • Outsweep is created by rotating the drop below the brake perch outward.
  • Flare is created by rotating the entire drop above the brake perch outward.

On a modern all-road bike a highly flared bar causes the brake hoods to be laid over toward their sides, creating ergonomic issues when riding on the brake hoods. Zipp' design team sought to develop a new-generation all-road bar for the hoods-dominant position favored by riders today, with the drops optimized for control in high-speed gnarly situations when the hammer drops.

After extensive research and testing, our design team pinpointed a drop design with an ideal 5° flare and 11° outsweep. The bar' drop shape features our popular 70mm reach, but the drop is a shallower 115mm. This archives modern fit ideals for all road bikes with the drops a little higher and wider than on a pavement only setup. The result is improved comfort and control:

  • With hands on brake hoods, wrists remain in a neutral position for comfort. This is ideal for riders, who've long favored this as their dominant hand position.
  • Bar drops provide a wider, balanced, and secure position with drops that are about 6cm wider than the hoods position for technical or intense riding.

The benefits get real when things get technical. The design helps center your weight on the bike so you can more deftly navigate the road or trail.

The 70 XPLR also features an ergonomic top with an extended 100mm clamping area for computer mounts, aero-extensions, bags, and whatever else you may need for the long haul.
