Parlee Z Zero Mapei Tribute


This was a fun and rare project for us. We’ve done a few Colnago Mapei edition bikes but here we were given a Parlee Z-zero from our friends at Nice Bike in Colorado and asked again to do a Mapei paint scheme.

We thought it was a good opportunity to flip things around and made some playful adjustments to the original scheme. The familiar trowel pattern of the top tube became a repeating Parlee logo here while keeping the feel of the Colnago Mapei bikes. If you know the inspiration you may be able to find a few other subtle shifts in our design.
