    Why Zipp?

    Use t5hese two websites to search for the best price.

    www.bestbikebuys.com
    www.qbike.com

    I prefer Kestrel carbon bars. I have both an EMS Pro and EMS Pro SL. www.aebike.com has the best prices on Kestrels.

    What are your thoughts on the Pro. Is it stiff? Shifter mount ok? What restrictions on the Stem and clip-ons (Easton requires the 2 bolt stem and no Profile style clipons).

    I have a pair of the Pro SLs they flex very easy and the finish sucks it chips off so they are headed for the bin. I saw a pair of the Zipp B2s and they are far stiffer and they fit me hands better

    It's all about the fit.

    They both are identical except for the weight. They fit me great so they are very comfortable and while I have good road feedback, they feel stiff to me. I can't notice any flex from either. YMMV. I have also had both pairs over a year with zero issues of cracking or chipping. On one I'm using a Ritchey WSC stem and the other an Oval Concepts stem, both are 4 bolt stems. No problem with my Record ergo's on either. Only the Pro can take an aerobar and I have yet to mount a set although I will this summer for a team time trial. For the record I',m 6'2" and 155 lbs. Use a torque wrench when installing. I have seem some stems damage the clear coat from rough edges which lead to chipping although any carbon bar will chip with a poorly finished stem.
