Prevelo Bikes Announces Revised Zulu Series Bikes

PRESS RELEASE: Prevelo Bikes

Prevelo Bikes is stoked to announce our refreshed Zulu Series bikes. We’re always trying to make our bikes better, so we’ve been hard at work, even in this wacko supply chain world.

All Zulu Series bikes feature Prevelo Kids Specific Trail Geometry throughout the size range. Slack headtube angles and low bottom-brackets aren’t just for big kids, but little kids too. And every component is carefully sized to match the frame geo. We sweat all the details to dial in handlebar sizes, stem lengths, and saddle dimensions for kids. A notable item that’s commonly overlooked is cranks. We size both the length and Q-factor of cranks for each size bike. Not only do these offer more ground clearance and lean angle in conjunction with our low BB, but they provide the correct stroke for little legs and narrow hips.

l’m a dad, and a rider, and I want to make bikes that I want my kid riding. I’m constantly looking for ways to make our bikes better for young riders. We worked so many long hours on these bikes that we destroyed four coffee makers. Perhaps it’s an indicator of a hardworking team plowing through a challenging environment that coffee maker replacement expenses became a non-trivial budget line item. But it was worth it. I’m particularly excited about the new Microshift 9-speed Advent drivetrain on the Zulu Three. It’s awesome to have a component maker focusing on derailleurs for 20” wheels.Jim Huth, Prevelo Bikes General Manager and Product Lead

Every Prevelo Bikes ordered direct from us goes through a thorough check and tune before we ship the bike. Prevelo is a company run by parents. And it is Prevelo policy to never ship a bike that we wouldn’t put our own kids on. This policy lives side-by-side with our new shop policy to maintain a back-up coffee maker at all times.
