Despite only officially launching in early 2021, our wheels already have some impressive achievements to their name. Of course, we can’t claim all the credit. Without a doubt, it was the riders who did the hard work.
But our wheels got them to the finish line, often over some fairly brutal terrain. From Italian streambeds and Scottish quadbike trails to sweeping Slovenian switchbacks and Kielder forestry roads, our wheels have seen it all on their way to glory.
Two Volcano Sprint – October 2021 – 1st Place
This was the race where Zolla prototypes were first tested, so it was fitting that Andrew Philips managed to secure the win here on his third attempt. He covered this incredibly challenging 1,180-kilometre route – complete with 26,000 metres of climbing and some gravel sections – in just 65 hours and 4 minutes. He was riding our 40mm all-road wheels paired with Continental GP5000 tubeless tyres.
The Perfidious Albion – July 2021 – 1st Place
Andrew Phillips finished 1st at the inaugural edition of The Perfidious Albion, a 2,400-kilometre ultra-endurance event through Scotland, Wales and England. He was riding on our 40mm all-road wheels, paired with 28mm Continental GP5000 tubeless tyres.
1000.si Slovenia – June 2021 – 1st Place
Ultra-distance runner Robbie Britton confirmed his transformation to ultra-endurance cyclist with victory at this hilly race around Slovenia. Showing his strength on the climbs, he led for much of the race and rolled over the line on his Zolla wheels in a time of just 48 hours and 26 minutes.
Badger Divide – June 2021 – FKT
The Badger Divide is mainly known for its beautiful off-road views between Inverness and Glasgow. But there is also a Fastest Known Time (FKT) for the route in both directions. In June 2021, Donnie Campbell smashed the southern FKT on a set of our 35mm gravel wheels, setting a rapid new time of 19 hours, 14 minutes and 16 seconds.
