Zipp announces new integrated computer mount and updated graphics
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.
Bold new graphics!
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.
