The Deda’s heat-treated 7075 aluminium is triple butted, making it extremely light as well as good at reducing road buzz.
Inevitably, stiffness has been sacriﬁced during the diet. The Zero 100 felt ﬂexible when cornering or hauling on the drops, and had a low score for stiffness in the lab. When riding on the hoods, though, they felt solid, indicating where weight has been saved.
The variable radius bend of Deda’s Rapid Hand Movement shape supports the hand well in all positions which, together with the isolation from vibration, makes these a great high mileage choice.
