Parlee Z-Zero stealth


This Parlee Z-Zero is definitely in stealth mode.

Parlee offer a range of finishes and this waxed finish is really popular with a lot of our customers. It has a raw, unusual effect that works really well with the Z-Zero, highlighting it's construction technique. This customer put some choice components together to create this great build.

The Campagnolo Super Record mechanical groupset is augmented with Rotor assymetrical chain rings and a gold KMC chain (ok, so it's not all stealth...). The seatpost, stem and bars are all from 3T. Ergonova Ltd Stealth carbon bars keep weight down without compromise as does the Stylus 0 carbon seatpost. The Jagwire Elit cable housing is a nice touch and gives a definite performance upgrade as well as a visual boost.

This customer opted for eeBrakes. Made by eeCycleworks, we often use the Direct Mount (dual mount) version on frames like the Parlee ESX. At under 200g with pads for the pair and mammoth stopping power these are an excellent choice among the cognoscenti.

Zipp have been at the top end of the carbon road wheel market for some time now. Their 303 Firecrest wheelset matches advanced aero technology and carbon know-how giving you a wheel that can perform everyday, whatever the conditions.

Speedplay pedals keep up the high-tech spec. This is definitely the bike of a real road bike tech connoiseur.

We love builds like this, where upon closer inspection the details really start to intrigue the viewer. It's never "just a black bike" really, is it?
