Zerode Bikes (New Zealand)
The Brain child of Rob Metz Mountainbiker, racer and engineer. A long time in development, the ZERODE is now go....
The ZERODE Chassis incorporates a Gear Box for exceptional and flawless shifting coupled with reduced unsprung weight.
A High Pivot for superior bump absorption regardless of its size or shape while aiding traction and pedaling.
ZERODE'S pedaling geometry balances the effects of weight transfer, traction forces and chain pull (ie growth / shrinkage) to eliminate pedal bob while enabling the suspension to be fully active.
The bottom line? These things combine to achieve what every bike company strives to achieve but most fail - A bike which needs minimal maintenance with flawless gear selection and suspension action which works just as well whether you're pedaling, coasting, braking or hitting turns!
It looks damn good too!
