Z-Zero Website Launched!

We are pleased to announce that: 1) Z-Zero's are shipping to dealers and clients and: 2) the model page is now live on our website.

Please note: For the forseeable future, our lead times will be slightly protracted on all Z-Zero orders as we work through the backlog that has been building since fall 2012. Please bear with us, demand is simply outstripping our available labor right now. The building of these bikes cannot and will not be rushed.

Your dealer will be able to give an accurate lead time at time of order. Thanks!

Prius x Parlee

Toyota reached out early this year to us be involved with a concept aero-road bike imbued with the same forward-thinking that went into the design of the Prius. Benefitting from a monocoque carbon-fiber frame, built-in smartphone dock, countless wind-tunnel-tested aerodynamic tweaks and its unprecedented mind-powered shifter, the PXP concept bike has emerged as a purpose-built machine that blends the simple with the complex to become a better and more efficient version of itself.

Cycling Weekly gives Z5 10 of 10

UK based Cycling Weekly has weighed in on our Z5. First impressions: 10 out of 10 and "Impossible to fault.", "The Z5 oozes quality. Clean lines from its non-fussy, round tube shapes deliver a ride feel that bucks the trend for huge tube sizes - often more 'show' than 'go'. Impossible to fault."

Not to bad for a build at 14.12lbs (6.4kg) with clinchers!!
