Size Guide and Model Comparison


  • Tubeless Ready Tires and Rims

    The Zulu Five is equipped with tubeless ready tires and rims, so you can ditch the tube, reduce flats, and get a more comfortable grippier ride. Bikes ship with tubes installed and will need to be setup tubeless by you or your mechanic.

  • Confidence Inspiring Trail Geometry

    The Zulu Five features Prevelo's signature confidence-inspiring geometry. Prevelo geometry utilizes a low bottom bracket that lowers the center of gravity of the bike and rider, making for a more agile and confident ride. The slack front end makes the bike forgiving to young trail riders experimenting with tough terrain.

  • Lightweight Wide Range Drivetrain

    Microshift Advent X with 10-speed Microshift Advent X G-Series 11-48T and easy to use trigger shifters gives progressing riders plenty of gear range to tackle a variety of trails.

  • Youth Optimized HEIR® Crank

    HEIR®crank lengths are custom sized for each size bike to make sure little riders have optimum pedal ergonomics. And they have ultra-narrow Q-factors to match the narrow hips of young cyclists. If that sounds like technical mumbo jumbo, here's the point - HEIR cranks will help make small riders more comfortable and efficient on their bike.

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.

    Note: The Multitool requires some dexterity and strength to remove from the bike and use.  We do not recommend this tool for children under 7 years old.
