Nzo Dobies - "a signature piece of kiwi mountain biking kit"

That is what Spoke magazine said about the product that put us on the map.

Nzo's completely unique design - if we have a trademark product, this is it. 

Unbelievable comfort in a short that can be used in a variety of ways to suit the ride and the conditions. Dobies are a unisex light padded trail short. LEARN MORE 

Nzo's Black Friday!

It’s Black Friday week! Well, we think it is. A quick wiki confirmed Black Friday as any Friday that falls on the thirteenth of the month. Apparently there is always one per year, but some unfortunRead more

While fossicking through some archive folders in a search for something - I don’t remember what - I found two interesting relics from prehistory. One is the original drawing outlining what wouldRead more

Ma Te Wa

Last night I even went for the season’s first after-work ride. Unlike some of my after-work efforts, this one started outside of what normal people consider to be working hours. The goal was to ridRead more

What's happened to the Nzo website!?

The Photographer's Day Off

The man behind most of the decent photos in the Nzo story is Graeme Murray. We met on a mountain bike ride, shortly after we moved to Rotorua, the town we chose as a base to start Nzo. Graeme is aRead more

Pointless bicycles, and why we ride them

In case you are feeling less than optimal because of the weather, virus, politicians, current radio, or anything else really, this may help you beat those equinoxial blues.  Check out theRead more

Product testing and its downfalls

We’ll admit it. There are definite upsides to be in the business of bike stuff, and near to a whole heap of trails. People tell us we are very lucky, and we can’t disagree. Just so you don’tRead more

Getting with the programme
