Modern marvel.

With the SL Sprint Carbon, Zipp set out to design the best performing stem on the market. But in this task, building the lightest stem they could would have been over simplistic. Understanding the demands of competitive riders, Zipp's engineers have endeavored to deliver downright impressive weight savings alongside pro-peloton-worthy stiffness and strength, resulting in a component that delivers equally on all fronts.

To achieve this goal, Zipp's SL Sprint Carbon borrows a few features from counterpart SRAM's pièce de résistance, the Red 22 Carbon Crankset. Using a technology called Exogram™, both components are built using a hollow carbon fiber that's specially shaped to minimize weight and maximize rigidity. Easy enough to claim, but Zipp has crunched the numbers and has been kind enough to inform us that the SL Sprint tips the scales at an off-the-chart 1.8 grams for each newton meter of stiffness.

Sure, these performance benefits are great on their own, but riders who know Zipp know that's only a matter of time 'til we bring up aerodynamics. The shape of this stem, right down to the included top cap, is designed for speed. Special contours derived from wind tunnel tests allow the SL Sprint Carbon to channel air with wind slicing efficiency, and provide a sleek aesthetic that's right at home on any race machine.

The SL Sprint Carbon Stem includes with stainless steel Torx® T25 hardware and an aero top cap. -12° drop. Claimed 165g weight in the 100mm size. It's compatible with 1-1/8" steerer tubes and 31.8mm handlebars.

Looks great feels great!
by Geoff

This stem looks powerful, feels stiff and amazingly absorbs a lot of vibration. At 120mm length I was happy to have the same feel and confidence in the stem as I did with my 110mm aluminum. Far less elbow and writ numbness with this Zipp carbon stem.

Looks amazing. Stiffest stem Ive ever ridden. Its clamped to an S-works Aerofly handlebar on a 2018 Specialized Venge Pro. Really helps complete the bike. Im 63 250 and I love the group sprint. Ive had other stemhandlebar combos in the past and none complete the feel of the out of the saddle back and forth sprint line this stem allows you too. Its just good.

Gold standard for stiffness
by billspreston

Very stiff stem that also manages to dampen road buzz nicely. Looks clean and stealth with the included black bolts. Heavy for a carbon stem, but it was designed to be stiff not light.
