Parlee RZ-7 in Cherry Red

An aero bike with fruity custom paintwork

The incredible aero bike, Parlee RZ-7 was released in late 2019 and has since become a firm favourite of ours at The Bike Tailor. 

RZ-7’s sleek shape and carbon fibre frame help the rider to slip through the elements, and also help boost speed with ease. 

But like Parlee says: “…speed is nothing without ride quality. The ultimate blend of stiffness, efficiency, weight and performance also features ride quality unrivaled by any other aero machine. That means more PRs with less fatigue.”

The elements used in this custom bike build

  • Parlee RZ-7 frame (large) 
  • Custom painted in gloss cherry red by Alastair at Fat Creations 
  • Enve Foundation 45 wheels
  • SRAM Force AXS HRD flat mount groupset 
  • 172.5mm cranks
  • 4835.T chainrings
  • 12 speed groupset
  • Vittoria Corsa tubeless ready racing tyres, 700x 25c

The frame is of course the number one component for creating an aerodynamic bike. This is a large frame, but it still benefits from the exclusive lightweight Recurve™ aero tube sections. They are incorporated in a way that means low aerodynamic drag and maximum torsional stiffness for more efficiency and power.

We are lucky enough to have access to some elusive SRAM Force AXS HRD flat mount groupsets this year. We’re one of the lucky few bike makers who have these in stock for our builds and we love them for their smoothness, reliability, and range. 

Enve Foundation wheels paired with Vittoria Corsa tubeless ready racing tyres really are the glossy cherry on the cake, as far as a light weight and aerodynamism are concerned. Enve’s slimness works great with the aero frame and provide stiffness and strength, as well as reliable handling.  

And because the details really count, we also used:

  • Fizik saddle
  • Lizard Skin bar tape
