Overview

Designed for the strongest of racers yet compliant enough for sportive cyclists, the ZEPHYR comes with a geometry suitable for the longest of races.

The ZEPHYR shares the same DNA as the rest of the NEILPRYDE range – bikes designed to be raced at the highest level. The front triangle is made from C6.7 carbon fiber and incorporates many of the same features developed for the race proven NAZARÉ and BURA models.

OTP Comfort technology was first introduced in the BURAsl, and was the key factor that allowed the BURAsl to achieve the necessary vertical compliance without sacrificing stiffness. The concept has been further developed in the ZEPHYR with the unique tube profiles utilized in the seat stays and fork. Subtle shaping of the seat stays running into the seat tube, combined with specific carbon lay-up, increases the damping effect of the rear triangle. The curved fork blades absorb vibrations from uneven roads in order to maintain comfort during the longest of races and stability under braking and cornering.

The ZEPHYR geometry has been modified from that found on the NAZARÉ and BURA models to include a slightly higher head tube to put less strain on your back and neck, a longer wheelbase and a shorter top tube. It’s the right way to get most riders, including many professionals, in the right position. With no need for high-rise stems or spacer stacks, the look is nothing but pro.

Vertical compliance, stable handling and efficient power transfer are key factors whether you are a seasoned pro or a weekend warrior. The ZEPHYR raises the enjoyment of cycling for riders of all levels.

FEATURES

Features

Carbon fiber headset cups.

Compatible with 28mm tires.

NEILPRYDE 27.2mm seat post for increased compliance.

Internal cabling for mechanical or Shimano Di2 ready.

1-1/8 upper and 1-1/4 lower headset bearings.

VERTICAL COMPLIANCE

Tube shapes form the important base for the weight and mechanical properties of a frame. The combination of carbon fibers, modifications to alignment and the application of variable wall thickness increase vertical compliance while maintaining high levels of lateral and torsional stiffness.

1Curved seat stays running into the seat tube increase vertical compliance.

RACE PERFORMANCE

Designed to be raced at pro level and utilizing C6.7 carbon fiber, PU Molding and One-piece Stays technology means no power is lost during the pedal stroke and makes the ZEPHYR responsive enough for the most powerful of sprinters.
