The Zephyr's iconic geometry and low rake give it the ideal aesthetic for a fixed gear bike.

Wound Up's X-Wound technology gives it elite racing performance.
Though originally developed for the velodrome, the Zephyr's association with fixie culture has, by now, eclipsed its original sport purpose. Make no mistake, however: the Zephyr is a professional-grade track fork. Its pinpoint accuracy will provide maximum control and reactivity for the urban warrior as well as for the pro racer. Its filament-wound carbon fiber construction will absorb road vibrations and enhance acceleration out of the saddle.

Slice through traffic with precision. Or dominate the track. Either way, you won't find a better ride.

The Victorian Sport. Track racing took off in late Victorian Era England, soon growing to become an international sporting sensation.
Velodromes sprouted around the world.
Track racing was included in the first modern Olympic games, and, with the exception of the 1912 Games, has appeared in every Summer Olympics since. Velodrome racing saw a decline in the mid and late 20th century in the US, but currently appears to be enjoying a resurgence.

To the city streets. Bike messengers preferred fixed-gear bicycles because of their simplicity.
Fewer mechanical components translated to less maintenance and fewer repairs.
The fixie had a lower cost-of-entry into bicycle ownership, and hence, the messenger business.
Another advantage: a fixie's asceticism made it less attractive to would-be thieves.

A fixie culture. Eventually, the mythology of the self-reliant and resourceful bike messenger percolated into social awareness and gained resonance. Many urbanites admired the fixie's spartan reliability, performance and longevity. By the early 2000s, fixie aficionados had coalesced into their own subculture that revolved around a dedication to the fixed-gear ethos. A vibrant contemporary movement continues to be fueled by fixie collectives such as Macaframa.
A difference you can feel.
And see.

The zen fixie aesthetic has found a fit in the Zephyr.
Its round, filament-wound carbon fiber legs and reverse dropouts give it an understated sophistication that seems designed to please the fixie set. Yet, we were making the Zephyr before fixed-gear bikes became a big deal. It looked exactly the same then as it does now. That's because we designed it to optimize ride control and ride quality. Its looks are a secondary function of its utilitarian design. But hey, what could be more minimalist than that?

That's why WOUND Up technology is the most advanced composite manufacturing process on the planet.
WOUND Up turns continuous filaments of carbon fiber into the highest quality composite cycling components.

WOUND UP is a Division of Advanced Composites and ALL WOUND UP products are made in the same factory as defense and aerospace composites. WOUND UP's Technological edge on the competition is the result of over 40 years of experience providing a full range of composite structures.
