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.

Hardtail Party

Looking at the geometry charts and parts spec I could tell these bikes were special. It was refreshing to see some pretty updated, modern geo on a kids mountain bike. When my son first threw a leg over the Zulu he was quickly at one with it. He was charging hard and wasn't hesitant or timid at al

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.
