What the Press Says about the Zulu Five

I really do wish there was a Prevelo in my size. I would be on it in a heartbeat. Being able to tackle everything from dirt jumps and trail riding to long days bike packing has been a game changer for my son’s riding and viewpoint of bikes in his world.

Rascal Rides

Exceptional - 5 Stars

The perfect pony for young aggressive groms who are ready to move on from their 24″ mountain bikes, the 26″ Prevelo Zulu Five is the perfect mix of playfulness and technical ability. Its Goldilocks combination of light weight, large gear range, slack head tube, and narrow q-factor make it the perfect bike for intermediate to advanced single-track warriors.

Two Wheeling Tots

Prevelo makes my favorite bikes for kids and small riders. The quality of these bikes and their components is higher than many of the adult bikes I receive for review on the channel.

Hardtail Party

Sea Otter Best of Show Award 2024

The Prevelo Zulu is the bike that first drew us to thePrevelo’s booth at Sea Otter years ago. Now better than ever, the new Zulu received a makeover, not just a color refresh.

The Prevelo bikes come highly recommended because of excellent customer service and a passionate team of cycling parents.
