Flat bars, suspension, Cervelo?? World Cup season is here, and we’re all-in. The Z bikes—the ZHT-5 and the ZFS-5, our hardtail and full-suspension, respectively—will make their race debut at the Nove Mesto World Cup. The pilots? World Cup veteran and former Dutch National XCO Champion Milan Vader alongside reigning Cyclocross World Champion Fem van Empel.
Progressive But Racy: ZFS-5 was built for today’s evolving XCO courses—it has to pedal well and handle quickly, but also take on the chunks, jumps, and drops littering the circuit. ZFS-5’s 67.8-degree head tube angle delivers the precision required for elbow-to-elbow hole shot sprints, and the confidence to let off the brakes when the track gets rough. Paired with the pedaling-efficient 76-degree seat tube angle, the result is a fast, efficient, and poised ride.
- Keeping Things Tidy: Internal cables run through the headset and swingarms keep them out of harm's way and produces a clean and sleek silhouette.
- Simple Reliability: A race proven flex stay single-pivot suspension design offers considerable weight savings and fewer moving parts while also achieving optimal suspension kinematics.
