Zeus was a Spanish bicycle and component maker with a long history. Founded in 1926, the company was headquartered in Eibar, northeast Spain, in bike-mad Basque country. Zeus was one of the few companies to make both bikes and components.

Zeus parts were produced in a wide performance range, from reasonably inexpensive parts to the most exotic. Some were shameless copies of Campagnolo parts and others showed striking design originality. All of it was, however, truly well-made.

The Zeus factory failed sometime in the late 1980s, yet another European victim of Asian competition. The name was acquired by Spanish bike company Orbea, which still makes some Zeus parts.

In 1980 Zeus replaced its Alpha line of parts with New Racer components. They were roughly the equivalent of Campagnolo Nuovo Record.
