Cero Design is a design studio based in Barcelona with clients including Mondraker bicycles, Gas Gas and many more. The young studio was founded by Cesar Rojo who spent 5 years working as a Structural Engineer & Designer in the moto Gp department at KTM and specializes in engineering, graphic and product design. Cesar is not only wickedly fast on his Mountain bike having been a factory rider for 5 years but also rides Motocross every chance he gets.
He recently traded in his 450 SX-F factory replica for a 2014 250 SX-F. In his own words “It feels like a two stroke compared to the 450, haha! nothing on the bottom, but once you rev it… I think you can keep up with stock 450’s. At least I was passing some on the straight in 4th gear… I think I can go faster on the 250. I did some times on the 450 and the 250 and I was just a very little bit faster on the 250. I’m not a very strong guy, so 250 suits me more. And coming from mountainbikes I’m pretty smooth, so I can keep the momentum quite well, so horse power I guess is not so critical to me. But we will see once I race it against a field of 450’s, haha!”
Give Cero Design a follow on facebook here, they have some pretty big things in the works! https://www.facebook.com/CeroDesign
Cesar has done quite a lot to his 250 SX-F! A lot of the pieces he transferred from his old 450 but this must be one of the most pimped out 250 SX-F’s outside of the KTM factory rig!

Cesar runs some custom Raptor titanium footpegs as used by the factory KTM team. If you want the lightest and sickest footpegs in the world, you can customize your own pair with different positioning options and whatever you want written on them here: http://www.raptortitanium.com/ I met the guys at Erzberg and they are a great father and son team behind the company with a pasion for racing and making amazing footpegs so I am happy to recommend them.
