The Zulu four is an amazing bike! This was a Christmas gift for my 6 year old - and it has helped to transform his riding! Before he was a solid rider on his 16” rigid single speed, we could do 4-6 miles rides, but there was many walking breaks. Now he flies! We’re up to 9-10 mile rides and he is pushing most of the hills and taking single track like a champ. He begs to ride more and is taking on obstacles like a stud. It did introduce a problem though, my 4.5 year old is chanceless of keeping up on the 16” hand me down bike and I’m eying the Zulu 3 20” for him. And Mom also needs and upgraded bike to keep up with him....
This is the best kids hard tail mountain bike I've been able to find for under $1000 for my 9 year old son. The geometry on this bike is dialed for young riders! Low stand over and low bottom bracket equals more confidence and ability to control the bike. Correct width handlebars get your kid in a good riding position and improves handling. My son has been having a blast since throwing a leg over this bike. It's light enough for him to climb on real single track trails and built for shredding back down. Hydraulic disc brakes give him plenty of stopping power and keep his little hands from getting sore and tired. Real air fork, grippy tires, crisp shifting and plenty of gears to keep up with mom and dad. I'd recommend this bike to anyone looking to get their kids out on the trails! Thanks for making a proper mountain bike that works for the groms!
My 9 year old was immediately comfortable on the bike which was an upgrade from a 20" wheel bike he had previously. No issues with order processing/shipping and assembly was easy.
The drivetrain is well speced. The brakes easily adjust for small hands. The fork is responsive for my 55lb rider. Frame is a beauty. The shipping was fast and customer service was top notch. Very pleased with this purchase. My son has a 22" inseam and is able to tear up the singeltrack on the Zulu. If you are in the market for a quality 24" hardtail that won't require immediate upgrades then this a great choice. Setup took all of about 15 minutes. Everything was tuned and setup prior to shipping. Four bolts for the handlebars, adjust the brake levers, throw on the pedals and you are ready to roll.
