Size Guide

Size Guide and Model Comparison


  • Microshift Advent Super Short Drivetrain

    The Zulu Three features the new Microshift Advent Super Short derailleur. The super short cage provides ample ground clearance for small wheels, while simultaneously providing best in class gear range. The clutch helps minimize chain drop while still providing crisp, accurate shifts.

  • Confidence Inspiring Trail Geometry

    The Zulu Three 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.

  • Kid Optimized Crank

    Prevelo 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 - Prevelo cranks will help make small riders more comfortable and efficient on their bike.

  • zulu three fork

    Air Suspension Fork

    The RST First Fork helps keep the rider comfortable and in control. With adjustable air pressure, the fork can be easily tuned to individual riders weights. Adjustable rebound damping helps you further tune the fork for your local terrain and your littles ones riding style. This fork also features a lock-on function to eliminate any unwanted movement on long climbs.

  • heir tubeless wheels

    Lightweight Tubeless Ready Heir Wheels

    Wrapped with Kenda Booster Pro tires, the HEIR wheels can be easily set up tubeless so you can reduce flats, improve traction, and shave another ~200 grams from the bike's weight. The sealed cartridge thru-axle hubs make these wheels some of the fastest and most reliable wheels found on any bike. The quick-engagement rear hub sounds awesome and helps riders navigate tricky terrain.

  • prevelo zulu pivotal saddle

    Pivotal Saddle

    The Pivotal system lowers the stack height of the seat, resulting in a 30mm lower seat. This helps get small riders on big wheels. This system also helps reduce weight and increase durability.

What the Press Says about the Zulu Three

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.


Exceptional - 5 Stars

There are not a lot of other kids bikes out there right now that have been thought out this well. If you’re looking for a trail bike that can handle climbing and descending on mellow rides as well as some serious single track that will test the skills of any kid, the Zulu line-up has you covered.

Two Wheeling Tots

From the moment my kid hopped on the Zulu Three, she became a dramatically better rider. I was stunned.


7-year-old tester: "This thing is awesome!"

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.

Bike Radar

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.
