Product Review: ZIPP B2 Carbon Bar and 145 Carbon Stem

Zipp is well known as the fast wheels to have, but to receive a full carbon handlebar and stem - What was going on here?

tube.   Zipp also included a rear clamp seal to finish the stem with a very clean and sleek look.   All in all, I have to say that the Zipp 145 stem is an impressive stem.   I would definitely recommend using the 145 stem with the B2 handlebar as a two-piece system to create a pro level ride.   However, be ready to fork out around $150 for the stem, making the total system price near $400.

 

My final impression of the Zipp B2 handlebar and 145 stem combination is a very good one. Zipp has succeeded at creating a system that looks amazingly great and function better than anything I have ever used. Zipp has carried the attention to functional details and beauty of their proven wheels over to the B2 handlebar and 145 stem.
