New Cervélo ZSF-5: from competition to market
Canadian manufacturer Cervélo has made its debut in full suspension mountain biking, somewhat pressured by the Jumbo Visma and its recent landing in the XCO World Cup with Milan Vader and Fem van Empel. So to shorten the development time of a new model, they chose as a reference one of the most traditional MTB brands with which they share a business group, Santa Cruz. It is not surprising then that the Cervélo ZSF-5 resembles the Santa Cruz Blur, although it has some changes that give it personality and originality.
We can say that the new Cervélo ZSF-5 was born directly from a competitive need and now comes to the market with 6 models plus a very interesting frame option for those looking for a light and efficient MTB with its own character.
The Cervélo ZSF-5 has opted for a monopivot rear suspension system, the lightest and most reactive for XC and offers the possibility of 100 or 120mm of travel. Both options share the same frame.
In addition, the Cervélo ZSF-5 comes with fully integrated internal cable routing that starts at the headset and saves weight by dispensing with the internal carbon routing. Instead it mounts a minimalist rubber center piece to pass the cable routing from the main triangle to the swingarm.
Its geometry is focused on current trends in modern XCO and features a steeper steering angle than the Santa Cruz Blur. At the rear we find a floating mount for the rear disc brake, which saves weight in the frame and maximizes its stiffness.
