Zumbi Cycles 2011 Range

Zumbi’s have a new look and a new importer.  We catch up with them to find out about the 2011 range of bikes…

Zumbi Cycles New for 2011

Zumbi bikes have had a rough past in the last few years in the UK which has clouded the bikes themselves.  Zumbi are now working alongside suspension giants Bos and have updated their range.  Pearl Distribution have taken over importing duties and pushing Zumbi in the right direction. 
Take a look at gravity bike range:

New for 2011 4XR frame is dedicated for 4X racing and slopestyle. Designing and development with French mountain bike superstar Romain Olmos together we have created what we feel is an ultra light frame with a very wide destiny.  Unique concentric floating shock CFS suspension system designed by Zumbi where the suspension can be set to 100 or 120mm travel easily with an allen key. Chainstays made from four separate tubes welded together resulting in an ultra stiff and reliable design. The concentric BB pivot makes the frame single speed friendly. Shock is compressed from both sides in a progressive rate preventing harsh bottoming. Shock air spring pressure is set not only to riders weight but also to riders style.  Higher pressure for 4X racing where pedal efficiency is most important and the suspension works only when the riders makes mistakes on the new style hard core 4X racing tracks used today, Lower pressure for slopestyle applications. All pivot points use high quality sealed ball bearings. Custom made stainless steel bolts. Bos Suspension provides a specially made 120mm fork specially made for the 4XR frame. Easily built into a 12kg race ready machine.  Maybe a BOS air shock to come in the future??

New for 2011 is our Horus chainguide system offered in two models with or without taco and ISCG old and 05 standard mounting patterns with a Carbon fibre version in development.


Designed in cooperation with Łukasz Łata and Ireneusz Dulniawka from the legendary Old Pricks Racing Team. Water jet cut and CNC milled out of aircraft quality aluminium alloy. The main idea of our design is zero friction of the chain throughout the suspension travel with no additional pulleys, skid plates which lower your pedalling efficiency. Works freely even in very muddy conditions and is compatible with ISCG 05 or ISCG OLD mounting pattern. Two models with or without taco chainring protector and a carbon fibre version in development. Anodised in black, red, silver, yellow, orange. Lazer engraved logos.
RRP – £85

 

E-bikes:

And finally a new E-bikes developed with Jurg Lanz from boosty.ch.


Innovate or die as they say…

Our new line of battery powered electric motor mountain bikes are a result of cooperation with Swiss genius Jurg Lanz from Boosty.ch. Jurg worked over the past 5 years on an innovative idea using his cnc machining and electrical skills to bring to life the most powerful and lightest electrical bicycle motor systems available on this planet.

These bikes can get you to the hardest to reach terrain making it possible to climb steep non lift assisted slopes even on a fully built downhill bike! This concept opens up unlimited horizons to the widely named freeriding and exploring. We developed four models using the Boosty system. The E-44, E-22, El Voodoo, and El guru. New for 2011 is silent motor chainring making the whole system silent. More information on www.boosty.ch

Boosty System technical data:

MOTOR: Boosty 36V-500W Pedelec 250W with Thermostat, Boosty Freewheel, Crank with Pedelec, Boosty MOTOR CONTROLLER with THROTTLE, WEIGHT: E-22 bike 21kg Battery back pack (370Wh) ca. 4kg, The MOTOR LOAD with throttle is 500-600 Watt and reaches a peak of 1000W on wheel, with Pedelec 250W, RANGE with 570Wh battery full power without pedaling around 1hour or economy with pedaling 3-4hours.
