The last 10 years have seen a curious trend emerge in road bike design. Conservative policies by the governing bodies in professional cycling allow the technology available to amateur and recreational cyclists to far outpace the technology available to professional racers.
The Z-Zero Disc is a great example of this unusual dichotomy. Featuring custom geometry, custom tube lay-up schedules, tubing made by Parlee north of Boston in Beverly, Massachusetts and the most advanced braking technology available, the Z-Zero Disc is a technical tour de force, a sheer joy to ride and still not legal for use in the Tour de France. Their loss is the Parlee riders gain.
The Z-Zero Disc is 100% made to order, with the optimum performance characteristics and technical requirements perfectly met for each individual rider. From gravel epics to gran fondos, no road bike can match the versatility of the Z-Zero Disc.
