Pioneer on Many Fronts: Zerode’s Prototype Full Carbon 27.5 Gearbox Trail Bike
Zerode is a boutique bike manufacturer out of New Zealand that's famous for doing things differently and incorporating technologies that aren't yet mainstream. Better known for their internal gear boxed G2 downhill frame, the company is starting to diversify and test designs for bikes that can be pedaled up and down the hill.
