Very pleased with the guys at Prevelo and their willingness to answer my questions before I ordered the bike. The quality is exceptional and the looks of the bike are on point. So much so that my wife asked if they make the Zulu in her size.
The first pedal bike I bought my son was a 16" version of a Haro freestyle bike. Although the build quality of the bike was good, but it was heavy and essentially a scaled down version of a full size bike. As such the ergos were awkward for my little guy and the bike weighed nearly as much as he did. We tried multiple times to get him going and he was never comfortable enough and eventually he got so frustrated he told me he would never ride a pedal bike and he was going to ride his balance bike forever. After this I got into research mode and after a couple weeks of reading reviews and comparing specs I landed on the Zulu 2. Once it arrived the assembly was minimal and I put my apprehensive grom on the bike to adjust seat, bars and levers. After that I gave him a little push down the street and he has had a ear to grin for the past month. Living in the PNW we have access to great trails and the bike has held up great. Its light enough for my 4yo to pick it up over logs and the hydraulic disc brakes have all the stopping power needed on the downhills. For us it was a game changer! So happy companies like Prevelo are making legitimate mountain bikes specifically for kids.
Very pleased with the workmanship; fit and finish both quite satisfactory. The lad loves riding his new bike. The shorter seat post, which was included in the purchase, proved to be just the cat's whiskers. Overall, we are happy with our purchase.
My son loves his new bike. We have been out mountain biking almost every day since he got it. Upped our game with a TowWhee and my 5 year old is covering all levels of terrain in the Wasatch. High praise for Prevelo.
My whole experience with Prevelo has been great! Bought the Zulu 2 for my 5 year old and fits him perfect. He rides with confidence always wants to go riding. Customer service was great as well. I had a problem with the brakes and they told me to go to a bike shop to get it bled/fixed and they would cover the bill. I plan on upgrading to the three once my son grows out of this bike. Would recommend Prevelo to anyone with small children who want a great experience with biking. Thanks Prevelo!
