DR. Z. / CROSS COUNTRY
MTB / DR. Z.
THE FLYING DOCTOR
You want to ride in the mountains, to enjoy your home ride, you want to mix it at the top in marathon races – you want a bike that can do it all. DR. Z. does its rounds and shows you that there is actually a bike that meets your demands. Its 29” tyres and its potent suspension system offer best comfort, whether for long tours or rooty trails. Each crank rotation is efficiently converted to forward propulsion; the head tube is short and the riding position sporty – ready to race. The slightly longer reach also emphasizes the sporting ambitions of the DR. Z. However, our doctor still is a general practitioner with excellent all-round qualities. For people who appreciate sheer mountain bike fun and who love to be out in the nature. There’s no better medicine for the stress of everyday life!
DR. Z. – available without prescription.
Good news for all hypochondriacs: Finally, the way to the doctor makes sense again – at least, if it is DR. Z.! His prescription: an outstanding frame concept and selected high-quality components. A sophisticated, forgiving suspension system is the key factor for unlimited biking fun. As fas as DR. Z. is concerned, it is based on Rock Shox components. At the front, a proven Rock Shox Reba RL Solo Air suspension fork carries out its duties. With 100 mm of travel, a stable tapered head tube and a 15 mm thru axle, this forks offers great performance on every trail. Versatile adjustment options make it a precise and reliable tool on demanding tracks. The well-developed suspension system also consists of a Rock Shox Monarch RT3 at the rear. It is thanks to a large number of clever features like an externally adjustable rebound or a 3-position compression (Open/Pedal/Lock) that this rear shock offers such a good performance. The compression setting allows you to adapt the suspension system to the prevailing terrain and to your preferences. In this way, you can even easily do challenging trails!
Our DR. Z. 2 is the general practitioner among mountain bikes. Equipped with 100 mm of suspension, 29-inch wheels and a lightweight, stiff aluminium frame, it presents itself as an excellent all-rounder. At the front, a Rock Shox SID RL Solo Air suspension fork offers outstanding performance and a low weight, while the Rock Shox Monarch RT3 rear shock perfectly matches the four-bar linkage design of the rear stay. In this way, the DR. Z. is a sensitive and forgiving companion. The bike is powered by the new and excellent SRAM GX group. With great functionality and a high-class look, this group can easily compete with top groups. The SRAM GX stands out for fast and precise shifting as well as for a wide gear ratio. A nice little highlight can be found on the great Race Face Ride Flatbar: The elegant ERGON GA30 grips are extremely robust and thanks to an ergonomic design, they are also perfectly suitable for long distances!
Off to the doctor, this practitioner offers superb all round treatment! The excellent frame of the Dr. Z. 3 is specced with the best parts a doctor's bag has to offer. First-class suspension elements from the brand Fox on the front and rear ensure a sensitive suspension performance. The components feature the Fox DPS system which adapts the suspension to the prevailing conditions. In combination with a rebound adjustment, the suspension system of the flying doctor is easy and quickly to precisely adjust to rider and track. We have given the bike a high-quality wheelset from the Swiss company DT Swiss and equipped it with Shimano's legendary XT group. However, you will not only be impressed by crisp shifting processes, but also by the aggressive and stable Shimano XT disc brakes. Their ergonomic grips are gaining popularity and with 180 mm rotors, this bike is game for everything. Heal yourself with the DR. Z. 3!
