The Z-Zero XD takes Parlee's carbon flagship, handmade in the USA, and adds a healthy dose of gravel/adventure capability.
ENVE's fast-rolling G23 carbon wheelset is likewise tailored specifically to endure the rigours of off-road adventuring, without compromising on ride feel or on-road speed. Panaracer GravelKing SK tyres are a properly capable off-road choice with enough of a centre strip to make tarmac sections not just endurable but fun.
The SRAM wireless electronic groupset brings 2x12 shifting, giving an enormous range to cope with everything from steep gravel scrambles to fast road descents, all with minimal gaps between ratios and effortlessly smooth shifts.
Parlee's carbon expertise doesn't just extend to the frame, the seatpost and cockpit are their own too, with the distinctive cutout below the seat clamp allowing them to tune the ride quality to perfection, matching the thought that goes into each frame's layup.
