Our review

Comfortable and vibration-reducing cockpit
Skip to view product specifications

The Service Course SL SS shape is both shorter than most and much shallower too. The angled flats on the drop curve give a great handhold, comfortable and well placed for sprinting.


It works well with the angled radius that transitions from top to drop, which also gives ideal wrist clearance. For an all-aluminium affair, the SL SS is comfortable, and though stiff enough for steering, does a great job of reducing road buzz.

The slim alloy stem uses high quality titanium bolts that are Torx-headed, so you’ll need a Torx bit for your torque wrench or a Torx key set.
