Zipp has today announced a new integrated out-front computer mount for Garmin and Wahoo head units. Designed specifically for Zipp stems, the QuickView mount replaces the existing stem faceplate with a new 6061-T6 aluminum piece that directly incorporates both an angle-adjustable computer interface as well as a GoPro-style accessory mount on the underside for action cameras, lights, and anything else that uses the finned standard.
The mount can be flipped so that the computer mount is situated down low or up high (if you’re running a handlebar bag, for example), and the lower GoPro-style mount can be removed entirely if you don’t want to use it.
One QuickView version will work for Service Course, Service Course SL, and SL Speed stems; another one is designed for the bigger and bulkier SL Sprint. Claimed weight for the bigger SL Sprint version is 98 grams, while the other one is a bit lighter at 82 grams. Keep in mind that those figures include the replacement faceplate, so the actual increases are closer to 78 grams and 62 grams, respectively.
Retail price is US$70 / AU$105 / £62 / €70, and it’s backward-compatible with newer Zipp stems.
Following in the footsteps of the new 303 family of wheelsets Zipp has announced in recent months, the new graphics included there has now made its way across the entirety of the handlebar, stem, and seatpost range. Although the new logo design has divided some opinions, it’s certainly more modern-looking.
The components themselves haven’t changed otherwise, and they’re still available in both carbon and alloy in a wide range of sizes. Zipp will continue to offer the handlebars in aero and ergo shapes, too, plus the all-road XPLR collection, which features flared drops and other dedicated features.
More information can be found at www.zipp.com.
The QuickView’s integrated GoPro mount on the underside should make for a very clean solution if you’re running multiple accessories.
There’s a dedicated QuickView for the larger SL Sprint stem.
While the integrated faceplate itself is obviously bigger and bulkier than the standard one, the end result should still be tidier than separate clamps and straps on your handlebar.
The new graphics have been applied to Zipp’s existing range of seatposts, handlebars and stems.
The Zipp Carbon SL handlebars are available in an aero shape (left) and ergo shape (right).
Zipp’s range of stems includes (clockwise from top left) the SL Sprint, SL Carbon, the Service Course, and the Service Course SL.
The XPLR is Zipp’s all-road and gravel handlebar option.
The numbers in the SL70 and SL80 on the Zipp handlebar names denote the reach in millimeters of each variant.
