Profile Racing – Why the Z Coaster?

Yesterday, we got a look at how the slack cam rings work on Profile Racing’s Z-Coaster, now we have two videos featuring Chad DeGroot explaining how the Z-Coaster works! There’s also some flatland riding from Chad putting the hub to good use to go with it. No word on exact release, but Profile Racing said this is the month, so keep your eye out if you’re on the hunt for one.
