Named after the Greek god of Fierce Competition and Rivalry, The Zelos
was made for the fierce competitor who wants the best
performance possible for a bike. At Olympus, our passion is riding fast and pushing the limits, and that’s exactly what this frame was created for. You’ll feel that from the very first pedal stroke. When you get home and look at your ride files, you’ll see the difference.
The Zelos is a monocoque mold meaning that the frame was made in one piece. This increases the stiffness of the frame and improves the ride quality. This frame is built with high modulus Japanese carbon fiber. This is the best carbon for a performance bike application because it reduces the weight and improves the responsiveness of the frame. You’ll notice these details most when you stomp on the pedals and you feel the acceleration.
Geometry wise, this frame was made for the aggressive rider. The forward seat angle puts the saddle over the cranks for increased explosive power, and the steep head angle makes it easy to push it through every corner. For a criterium rider, the high bottom bracket shell gives you a little extra space so you don’t hit a pedal as you lay down the power in the turns.
Sometimes you need to slow down to go fast. When that happens, you’ll be grateful for the very powerful direct mount braking system.
All in all, the Zelos lives up to its name as a fierce competitor, and if that’s what you consider yourself, the Zelos is for you.
