Pedaling

"Although the engine on a MTB is no where near as powerful or smooth as that of a Moto, the physics behind the suspension response under power is exactly the same. In a nutshell there is a tug of war going on between two separate forces.

One force tends to compress your suspension, this is caused by the acceleration as you pedal tending to make the front of the bike light ( like a Moto doing a wheel stand), in turn loading up the rear of the bike and compressing the suspension. The other force is the traction/chain force which wants to extend your suspension. The key on a mountain bike is to balance these two forces by correct placement of the pivot and chain line, without the limitations imposed by a conventional derailleur system this is achievable I.e. With the Zerode suspension design the extension force is equal and opposite to the compression force the net result is Zero force, Zero compression, Zero extension, Zero Bob……….

Other suspension designs claim Zero bob, but without fail they achieve this by using chain force, pedalling platform shocks, lockouts….All of which effectively lockout the suspension to some degree under pedalling resulting in pedal feedback, loss of traction and turning your suspension components into dead weight. These are just band aids for a poorly designed suspension. The Zerode suspension system allows the suspension to stay supple and active, adding traction, allowing you to pedal over rough terrain, out of corners, climb for longer…… without your precious energy being leached away by Bob."

GEARBOX

“As mountain bikers we love riding in all sorts of conditions. Mud, sand, dust, dirt in all forms gets all over our gears and moving parts wearing them out and hindering their performance.

We all know the feeling of skipping gears. Many of us are scared for life by derailleur malfunction. Whether it is caused by bashing your expensive derailleur on a rock or all of those little pivots wearing out the result is the same, poor shifting, no confidence and a riding experience that is less than desirable. The Zerode gearbox never misses a gear, ever!
The shifts are seamless under full load, at a full stop, up or down & amp; even if your bike is caked in mud. Your Chain will last for years not months because they aren’t tortured into climbing up and down clusters and the Gearbox itself is a sealed self contained unit that requires almost no maintenance. You will never drop a chain because the gearbox allows a fool poof chain guide to be built into the frame.

We put a lot of testing into selecting our gearbox and after thousands of downhill runs and trails rides on the same unit we are confident weve made the right choice and sure you’ll agree.

To date we have known Gearboxes as heavy and draggy making the bike feel sluggish and hard to pedal. The Zerode Gearbox weighs about the same as the parts it replaces ( cluster, derailleur, chain guide or chain rings and front derailleur for XC bikes. Gearbox drag is a non issue, the efficiency of the gearbox means the drive chain feels similar to a standard derailleur system.
Once again very real improvements in your bikes performance have been made through Zerode’s redesign of the mountain bike frame from the ground up. This truly is the future of mountain biking.”
