In this episode, Tyler sits down with multi-time EWS world champion Jerome Clementz to discuss how he and other top pro riders were instrumental in testing and designing the new Zipp 3ZERO MOTO mountain bike wheels. We dive deep, and Jerome doesn’t miss a beat explaining the entire testing process, what worked and what didn’t, and how the entire test program works to ensure Zipp ended up with a wheel that would withstand a season of World Cup level racing, but still be comfortable and practical for everyday riders like us. There’s just a bit of static here and there, but bear with us, the interview’s worth it.
We also discuss the mindset required to race, how he trained to stay at the top, and why he retired from enduro racing. Watts had the week off, so Zach joined Tyler to discuss how we test products at Bikerumor, what we’re thinking when we head into a product launch, and other aspects of reviewing new components. Lastly, we talk about why single-wall fat bike rims aren’t really the same as what Zipp launched.
