Ever get tired of people showing you pictures of their kids? Well, I’m about to be that guy. Don’t worry, this time it will actually be worth it. Big shout out to Prevelo, a kids bike brand from Southern California, who provided a new upgrade for my daughter’s wheels. Previously we had been using Woom bikes-an Austrian company making extremely lightweight kids bikes. The Woom 1 was an exceptional first bike and came highly recommended, along with its older sibling the Woom 2. Children’s bikes can have a great return on investment, but more importantly we all just want to see our kids take some risks having fun. And MAYBE wipeout once or twice between the fruit roll ups, chocolate milk, and “cookie snacks” (Lara Bars).
The Zulu Two will be a big change for my daughter because of the increase in tire size, the addition of disc-brakes and better geometry for the trail. Oddly enough, a 27.5 to 29 has only 5% difference in tire size, while a 14 to 16 is 12.5%! Us grown ups will have a hard time relating to what big of a change that must be. After riding through parts of Galbraith with my daughter, we started to see some people riding around on Prevelo bikes. A beginner trail we would frequent is the Cedar Dust Green Jump Line, and sure enough I noticed Prevelo’s sponsorship of the trail.
While bubblewrap is the main attraction for any kid (or adult), there was an excellent kids bike that came along with it too. Prevelo builds legit kids bikes and are definitely kid-tested.
Huge shoutout to Prevelo who was kind enough to hook us up with this bike. Here is a link to the Prevelo site, and anything you purchase will help my channel. Thanks in advance!
