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.
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.
Other sponsored brands to beef up the riders and rides come from Fox Suspension (Mojo), Fox race kit and casual wear, Mavic, Funn, Hope, Maxxis, Biketart.com new addition Rockstar Energy who wanted to support a World class team for 2009.
After completing such a master piece 4Mountains asked one of their top riders Neil Donoghue to test the downhill bike, these where Neil's comments. ”2009 sees a lot of big changes for myself as I move on from from Mountain Biking UK to a whole new team with new bikes and new team mates. It is an exciting time for me as I make the transition onto a different bike, but things could not have gone more smoothly. The Zumbi F44 Ti is a pretty amazing bit of engineering and I found it really easy to get on with straight away. I tested the bike back in December and it took me less than half a run at Hamsterley Forest to know that it was all sweet and a really competitive bike. I have been fortunate enough to ride some pretty special, factory tuned bikes during my career and this one does not disappoint. The team has some amazing support this year from companies with really nice kit and the team vibe is buzzing. I can’t wait to get racing and get my Zumbi up on a few podiums”.Meet the 4Mountains World Team
