Alexis righetti

Alexis from France goes for the real adventure. His need for the highest reliability is where the match with Zerode came about. “I don’t ride in the mountains, I go mountaineering with a bike”, as he explains. "I look for lines in rough high alpine terrain. My goal is to ride the highest and most complex mountains possible. I opened many lines in the Alps and the Pyrenees. Recently, I set up an expedition where we did two peaks of over 6000 m in Chile, completely autonomously. In the mountains, I am on my own or with a teammate, I never go with a guide or a film crew. I take care of shooting the footage myself and I also do the editing. In my videos, I aim to immerse the audience and make them feel what it really feels like to be in these places with a bike."

Tom is a British Youtuber. His channel perfectly shows what many of us love about our sport: Laughing out loud with your buddies while looking for the coolest trails. But it is also about equipment talks, seeing who is the first to cross a dangerous section and at the same time enjoying a great workout under a beautiful morning sun. Check out his channel: Tommy C Hype.

Hidde stroomer

At 11 years old Hidde is probably one of the youngest Zerode riders out there. From Trials to DH and from Enduro to BMX racing, give this lil' ripper two wheels and he's a happy camper. Combining great skills with youthful enthousiasm, all with a surprisingly mature mind and riding style. The upcoming years will be about visiting more bike spots, looking for new adventures, racing DH, Enduro and BMX but above all, having fun! His Zerode Taniwha gave him the confidence to tick off the biggest of lines at the German and French bike parks he has visited. Little shout out to his old folks for bringing him to all those places too ;) Picture: Newearthvisuals

Grizzly Munro Diaries 
Sean Green

"With a desire to be in the highest reaches of any mountain range, seeking that ever elusive singletrack, I need a bike that can handle absolutely everything I can throw at it, without having to worry about ripping my drivetrain off and a long push back to civilisation. Riding down all 282 Munros in Scotland, means I need to have complete faith in my bike. Zerode provides me with the perfect platform to tackle any mountain that my imagination seems to muster up".

Rotorua is well known for gifting legendary riders to the world, and there’s no better example than Bradley Lauder. Lightening fast, smooth and mega styley sums up Bradley’s riding, while his engaging sense of humour and bold friendliness are an equal match. Bradley competes for Zerode in the EWS. No stranger to the podium, Bradley also competes in drift car racing and is a world class whitewater kayaker. Follow him at:


“As a coach and racer I spend half my life on my bike and I want something that is reliable and up to the task. Not having the the constant worry of damaging and replacing derailleurs and the ability to just jump on my bike and not having to retune gears has been awesome. When it come to riding, I personally love dropping down steep rough shoots where I can truly test myself and the bike and it’s where the silence of the zerode gives me confidence to push the limits.”
