When Spot began the journey to create their first true road bike, the Denver Zephyr, they knew it had to be special—iconic in design and utterly dependable in performance. They found inspiration in an archetype of mid-century American transportation: the historic Denver Zephyr train. Its polished steel glinting in the sunlight, this marvel of efficiency, power and progress barreled across the Heartlands between Chicago and the Rockies. Spot’s Denver Zephyr may not be diesel powered, but it measures up to its namesake in all other regards: style, speed and on-time reliability. This is a classic brushed stainless steel road bike, made for the long haul, yet thoroughly modern in its features: tapered head tube, hydraulic disc brakes, Di2 electronic shifting.
Spot added gentle bends to the bright steel frame’s seatstays and chainstays for subtle compliance—and, yes, a few style points. Knowing full well that Spot customers prize versatility, they added ample tire clearance for running up to 40c in the front and 35c in the rear to charge gravel roads. They included rack and fender mounts for randonneuring and super commuting. Years in development, no detail overlooked, they are proud to launch the Denver Zephyr. Like its namesake, Spot believes it will become an American classic.
