We’re a UK company, but this being 2021 we operate flexibly and founder Andrew spends most of his time working remotely in Italy where the quiet roads and good weather facilitate a better training environment. Our wheels however are hand built in the UK by expert builders with many years experience.
Zolla was set up to address a gap in the market. Current carbon wheel offerings sell on headlines. Fractions of a watt’s aerodynamic advantage at 45km/h, or a few grams of weight saving. For us, strength and build quality are key, whilst maintaining the vast majority of weight and aero advantages carbon rims can offer.
Having been working in the bike industry for a number of years, and touring across several continents, Andrew began endurance racing in 2019 and immediately set about designing the right wheels for the job. This year he intends to race the famous Transcontinental Race, as well as returning to 2VS.
Former world record holder for the fastest crossing of Europe (South to North), Rob can be found endurance racing on all surfaces when he’s not busy working on the Zolla website or testing our latest wheel build. This year Rob will be returning to 2VS as well as racing the Great British Divide.
The voice of Zolla on social media, Ruth’s entrance to the wold of endurance cycling was a baptism of fire. 2020 saw her transformed from occasional cyclist to 2VS finisher.
