Prevelo is killing it!
The most trail-capable 16-inch kids’ bike we’ve ever tried.
My son was empowered riding the ZULU, and now he could climb the steep trails at our local single track and mountain bike for real. Our rides have gotten longer and more adventurous, and ZULU has taken all the slams with grace and little scuffs. I highly recommend the Prevelo ZULU for anyone looking for a kids bike that will foster a love of mountain biking and be solid to pass down for many kids’ uses.
Jumping on the Prevelo was a noticeable change in how he rode. I immediately noticed his feet were on the pedals correctly. Stopping wasn’t such a chore as he could reach the levers without removing all four fingers from the bars. Shifting was easier, too. The grip shift on his old bike had him moving his hand so much that he had to take his concentration from the trail and focus it on the shifting task. Plus, the grip itself was coming off the bars the more and more he shifted. With a standard thumb shifter, shifting wasn’t only easier, he learned to do it without looking.
If you are a two and a half or three year old that can ride a two wheeler, I highly suggest you drop some hints to your parents about this.
From the moment my kid hopped on the Zulu Three, she became a dramatically better rider. I was stunned.
Groms who hop curbs, skid around vacant lots, and pedal up and down technical singletrack will find their wings with the Zulu Three—and that’s a hard purchase to skimp on.

Prevelo's claims of making a better kids' bike were legit.
Both sets of parents were shocked at how quickly their little kids not only became comfortable on the bike, but how much better they were riding.
Prevelo is definitely onto something with the low-center-of-gravity kids' bike geometry. It's not just another marketing claim, it actually works as shown by the three different kids that hopped on the bike and instantly took off.
