The Z-Zero XD is a handcrafted carbon dream machine, but it's also not afraid to get muddy.
This one made a welcome return to us recently for a fettle and a new set of wheels. With two wheelsets to choose from the XD goes from capable all-rounder to gravel/road specialist.
ENVE SES 4.5 ARs shod with Schwalbe G-Ones are fast rollers that'll eat up the road miles with ease and cope happily with rougher and looser surfaces.
When the going gets really tough, swapping out to DT Swiss Splines, with Schwalbe's X-One Allround tyres ensures that gravel roads and bridleways are no obstacle.
