Parlee's Paint Lab have come up trumps again, with this gorgeous
green colour scheme, complete with custom painted details.
The ENVE SES 3.4 AR carbon wheelset is optimised for 28-32mm
wide tyres, and yes - the RZ7 is an aero road bike, but it will
happily accomodate up to 32mm width. This is an aero road bike
that's more than just a one trick pony. Parlee have built the RZ7
to be light (870g is quoted for a medium frameset) and aero, but
also comfortable and smooth handling.
That gecko graphic painted on the top tube brings brings back
memories of the Audi Quattro and its high grip and unflappable
handling, in turn inspired by the grippiness and climbing ability
of the gecko itself.
Handling is key for Parlee. They build bikes ready to compete at
the highest level, but they always keep one eye on real world
This is part of why we love working with them - as bike fit
specialists we're well aware that comfort and control play as much
part in performance as aero and light weight.
