CUSTOM BUILT FOR ADVENTURE
Picture your perfect all-season gravel/cross/adventure bike. What comes to mind?
Ask ten riders to describe their dream machine, and you’ll get ten different answers. That’s because there are so many variables at play: riding style, terrain, seasonal conditions, your personal calender of events and goals.
Bikes in this emerging category are put to so many different uses—from hardcore ’cross racing to gravel grinding to adventurous road riding—but the truth is most production gravel bikes are all quite similar. Higher bottom brackets, traditional geometry, overbuilt frame tubing—features born from the very specific demands of cyclocross.
That’s why Parlee created the all-new Z-Zero XD. Rather than follow the typical blueprint for a cyclocross bike, we set out to create a premium ride experience with nearly unlimited versatility. The name speaks to the custom DNA of this bike and to its expanded capabilities. Its siblings, the Z-Zero and Z-Zero Disc, are custom carbon-fiber road bikes that blend lightweight performance with made-to-order comfort and ride tuning. Parlee started with that same precision engineering as the Z-Zero, then tweaked the geometry and added some features including disc brakes and extra clearance for tires up to 40mm wide.
Everything from the layup schedule of the carbon fiber to the tubing sizes and geometries are customizable for comfort and performance. When you factor in all the different tubing choices, there are essentially 16 effective sizes to give you the perfect fit. There’s no other carbon fiber frame in this category that can offer that level of comfort and performance.
