New All-City Zig Zag disc road bike

All City Zig Zag frames

Summer is arguably the best time of the year. Sunny weather, long days and of course… new bike releases!

If you have been dot-watching the Trans-Am or TCR and feel like crossing a continent by bike, the All-City Zig Zag might be right up your street, strasse or strada!

All-City‘s bid to grab a piece of the action in 2019 is the Zig Zag disc road bike. While this is their first foray into disc road bikes, the Zig Zag shares all the characteristics we have come to expect from All-City. A steel frame showcases their trademark features, namely custom air-hardened A.C.E tubing, neat TIG welds and cast seat collar and dropouts.

The Kings of Colour

As usual with All-City, the first thing to grab your attention will be the eye popping paint finish! We think both the Orange-Red and Purple-Lilac fades look outstanding on the new Zig Zag. All City set quite a trend with their red-yellow fade Gorilla Monsoon last year, so much so that it seems several bike brands have copied it! The Zig Zag’s beauty is more than skin deep, the frame benefits from an E.D. coating to keep corrosion at bay and your bike looking good for years to come.

The geometry is designed to combine performance and comfort. Full mudguard mounts mean that you can keep going in the rain too. Other features include front and rear thru-axles, a tapered head tube and a carbon fork from QBP stablemates Whisky. The Zig Zag is designed around a 28mm tyre but has clearance for 32mm with mudguards and 35mm without, that was gravel bike territory not so long ago!
