Coco Zurita's Haro SD V2 setup
Pit stop at LAX
X Games BMX Vert professional Coco Zurita landed at Los Angeles International Airport and made a quick stop to shoot a bike check and share his personal ride. With an X Games silver medal under his belt from the 2013 season, as well as consistent placings in more recent years, Zurita's bike acts as an extension of himself. And his vert setup is unlike any other BMX Vert rider out there.
Have a seat
"I usually like to ride a long set up with a taller front end," says Zurita. "I like how stable and long it feels." And judging from his seat height, we're guessing Zurita doesn't do too much sitting while he's pedaling.
"I ride the Markit/Demolition seat," says Zurita, who gets parts flowed to him from Demolition Parts. "It has a lot more padding than what I was running before, and it's pretty comfy. It is a good size -- not too big or small."
"I run a Profile mini-cassette with a titanium driver and bolts," says Zurita. "That hub is laced up to a G-Sport Birdcage rim and wrapped with some Demolition Momentum tires."
"I actually just got the new Demolition Rig bars, with a 9.25-inch rise," says Zurita. "They are a bit taller than I would usually run and so far I really like the way they feel. The stem is the Premium Sub-10 v3 and I love the top-load version."
"The Premium Slim PC pedals are sealed and super lightweight," says Zurita. "Not only that, but you can change the pedal body whenever they wear out. They are simple and strong."
"I am running the Demolition Bulimia hub in the front," says Zurita. "They are reliable and simple and happen to be one of the lightest hubs out there -- even stock straight out of the box, without any titanium additions."
Frame of choice
"My frame of choice is the Haro SD v2 in black, with a 21-inch top tube and a 75-degree head tube angle," says Zurita. "It is a very comfortable frame and I didn't event feel the change from my old bike. After riding one of the lightest and lowest frames on the market before this, the switch was crazy to me." Bonus info: the frame is the signature frame of fellow X Games BMX competitor Dennis Enarson, who competes in BMX Park at X.
"The drivetrain is made up of a 25-tooth Demolition/Markit sprocket, a 9-tooth titanium driver, a Cult chain and a set of 3-piece Demolition Revolt cranks with a 175mm length," says Zurita.
"As far as tires go, I like the Demolition Momentum tires," says Zurita. "They are some of the lightest non-Kevlar beaded tires out. They happen to grip well and they can hold a lot of air pressure with no problem. The forks are actually the new Rob Wise prototypes from Demolition, which should be out soon."
Grips and shouts
"The grips that I ride are the regular ODI Longneck grips," says Zurita. "They feel broken in right away and tend to last for a good while. I've gotta give a shout out to Demolition Parts and Haro for this cool new set up -- they always help me out with my career and I appreciate it."
