BIKE CHECK: TRICK OR TRID

WHO'S RIDING WHAT: ZHIWEN ON A RARE TRID ZZ

 

 

The Trid ZZ is Polygon's answer to FMD and all things on the slopestyle side of MTB. Developed with Sam Reynolds over 2 years, it features some neat bits like the downtube-mounted shifter and a solid build that's like … really bomb-proof. It is neither a trail bike or a downhill bike. As such, bikes like these are rare at the shops and more rare on the streets. We spotted one and cornered the owner into letting us take a couple of photos for a bike check. Lucky for us, he agreed. So, here's Zhiwen's Trid ZZ!
