Zerode G2 Build Kits From Zerodeusa

Zerodeusa is offering two build options for the G2. The first is the Pro build with all the light weight goodies a racer could want. They are also offering a cheaper build option call the Zee build. As you can guess it is outfitted with Zee, Dorado Expert and Sun Ringle Add Pro wheels. Check out more below....the G2 has had some major updates that the racers asked for.

1) The geometry has had an overhaul for the G2. 3 sizes, shorter head tubes, longer top tubes and slacker head angles mean a race ready chassis for all body shapes and sizes.

2)  With lessons learned from the G1 we have shaved over 300grams off the frame. Some of this is unsprung weight in the chainstay, axle and rocker further improving the Zerode suspension performance.

3) The down tube yolk has been redesigned to increase the ground clearance by 20mm, increase chain ring clearance for a better primary chain line and incorporates a sturdy shock guard mount so your shock and frame are protected from stray rocks.

4) Each Zerode will come with 2 shifters. The standard Alfine unit and a modified SRAM unit. You choose which one you feel most at home with.

5)  A new rectangular down tube is stiffer, lighter and stronger than the old round tube.

6) The chainstay has been redesigned to increase tyre, crank and chain tensioner clearance.

7) Reduced travel from 9.25” to 8.3”. With less unsprung weight and an efficient axle path we felt a little less travel would give a more lively feel, reduce weight and make a great pedalling chassis even better without sacrificing it’s superb bump eating ability.

8) New colours….The G2 is  Bead blasted and anodised in Black or Charcoal with four decal options. Custom Anodising is available.

23 Degrees Signs Management Deal With Laurie Greenland

23 Degrees is excited to announce today that the recently crowned Youth Downhill Champion of Great Britain, Laurie Greenland, has signed a multi-year management deal looking forward to his upcoming Junior racing career and the World Cup circuit.

The talented 16 year old from Bristol is presently racing for the Wideopen Mag team for the 2013 season and will be considering all options when looking forward to the 2014 Junior World Cup which starts in South Africa next April.

"Wideopen Mag is a great team to ride for and have been a huge help in my career especially with my recent results.  
It's so much fun riding for the team and they are really good with kit, race entries and race support. After seeing how well the new Junior World Cup has gone this year, I'm super keen to race that for 2014 and I know I'll need to consider all of my options carefully", said Laurie.


CEO of 23 Degrees Martin Whiteley says: "We've been keeping on eye on Laurie's results since his strong year in 2011 in the Juvenile category, but this year it became very clear that he is something quite special. His wins in Innerleithen and Fort William were dominant, and his times when compared to big name Elite riders were simply amazing. After meeting with Laurie and his father Ben it was a simple decision. Laurie is the complete package and his father has been a big part of that success. I'm looking forward to helping them reach their goals in the years ahead."

Neko Mulally Takes Another Pro GRT Win

Making it now 3 wins in the series for 2013, and 5 in his career, Neko Mulally continues his great 2013 season by winning in Snowshoe, West Virginia, and by another solid margin, this time it was 6 seconds.

The win picks up Neko another 60 points in the series and by our calculations, he moves from 4th to 2nd overall, though the title is not his main objective.

Neko said: "These races have been providing me with an excellent opportunity to train. My training has been largely strength and skill based lately. I've been going hard in the gym and cross-training with XC, BMX and motocross. My coach and I saw this event as a great chance for some skill specific work. I felt like I got a lot out of racing at Windham a couple of weeks back and this race was another great training race for the upcoming 2 World Cups.

We had surprisingly nice weather all weekend because that place is in a rain forest, so I was expecting more mud. The track was a good lead up for the next World Cups, 4 minutes long with really high speeds and pretty rough terrain which made it very physical. Snowshoe was one of the first places where I spent a lot of time racing but I haven't had the chance to race there since 2008, so It felt great to be back.

I am really happy with the pace I'm riding right now and I can't wait to take this feeling into the next 2 World Cups."

Neko will be at the upcoming US National XC Championships this weekend where he plans to race the Super D.
