ZumbiBikes aus Polen. Polen ist ja bei uns eher durch ihre Exportgeschäfte von gebrauchten Bikes bekannt… Jetzt machen sich neben dem tschechischen Hersteller Author noch eine zweite Truppe aus dem Ostblock daran, ein paar Bikes zurückfliessen zu lassen: Zumbi Cycles

Die Optik ist mehr als gewöhnungsbedürftig und auch technisch gibt es einiges zu bemängeln. Das bedeutet jedoch auch nicht mehr, als dass noch viel Optimierungspotential besteht ;)

Zumbi Cycles hat jetzt neu Fox-Federelemente dran und möchte an der Eurobike etwas Werbung machen. Mal schauen, ob wir noch mehr von dieser kleinen Bude hören. Hier mal ein paar Bilder und die Pressemeldung in Englisch:

ZUMBI cycles manufactures professional hardcore mountain bike frames and parts for the most demanding. Every ZUMBI product is designed in Myslenice, the mountain bike downhill heartland of Poland.

Techniker und Ingenieure aus der Flugindustrie produzieren die Bikes

Basing on the experience of our main engineer Pawel Matuszynski and top World class riders we bring to life the best, 100% Polish bike equipment for gravity addicted mountain bike enthusiasts. We want to deliver the best frames and parts out there and that’s why every ZUMBI product is manufactured by craftsmen from the aircraft industry who used to work with MIG jet fighters and tested by our riders and designers before getting on the market.

Our philosophy: design simple, use the best materials…back to the roots.

Eines der Bikes in Action

Pawel about ZUMBI: “As the owner and designer of ZUMBI I am an avid DH rider/racer and in my designs I’m trying to accomplish the ultimate ride. I have a masters degree in Engineering. Everything I do is connected with mountains which I love. Besides biking I snowboard, ski and climb. I designed and built my first frame in 2003.

We use the best materials like 7020 Oria tubing, 7075 aluminum, Ti6Al4V titanium and high grade stainless steel. All the frame parts are CNC machined and handwelded at our facility in Poland. Our welders are ex-MIG aircraft welders with over 30 years of experience. We are proud becoming a sponsor of a proffesional racing team this year with top ten World class athletes in DH, 4X and BMX.”

Very low center of gravity providing superior traction. Two shock mountings changing the suspension characteristic. Braking forces isolated from suspension thanks toa floating brake caliper which is a standard feature. The suspension path helps suck up those square edged bumps which slow you down.
