Welcome to Nzoland

Nzo is Glen Anderson and Gaz Sullivan, and we design and market original gear for mountain bikers. We are in New Zealand, where doing stuff outdoors is a way of life, and having good, simple, durable gear that works is an important part of living well. Nzo is a small company, committed to selling our designs direct to our customers.

Nzo began with ideas based on our experiences travelling, riding bikes, and living simply. We moved from Auckland to Rotorua, to be near the best trails we know about, and opened a shop full of mountain bike shorts and T shirts, where people like us could get stuff that suits the way they live.

The shop is long gone, but we still sell our stuff straight to our customers from our barn, on the sunny side of Mount Ngongotaha, the site of the 2006 World Mountainbike Championships. If you have any questions about Nzo stuff, email or call - we will get straight back to you with whatever you want to know.

When riding in muddy conditions everyone seems to

ride/skid down the middle of the track forming a ‘foot wide’

extremely slippery ribbon. In order to avoid the ribbon

(a good idea) you can bank from left to right down the

track crossing the ribbon every three metres or so

(speed dependent - when moving faster it may be

every five to eight metres) looking for good camber

or a grippy surface to corner on then switching across

to the other side again looking for more goodness.
