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.

 I went and checked out their website: a polish bike company, Using aircraft engineers and the finest materials, They are using MIG technology. where is the mount for the booster rocket? and I want my nuts back........

 They just contacted me but I don't speak polish. Guys; I don't want my Nuts attached on my back. could you just get them out of the coil spring.. OH! and the spokes....and I think one just rolled over by your foot....
Does this mean I get in free for ladies night?

 That frame looks totally old school. That spring rate would be ridiculous. I once heard of a guy at whistler getting his nuts torn off between the saddle and tire landing a drop. I would be scared this would pinch them off. that or if the shock mount failed you would get raped by a dhx 5.

 I lol'd so hard, yes stupid comment but imagine if your nuts went down there...

 Their was a press release but it is the 4Mountains team not Zumbi, they are just one of our many sponsors and 4Mountains.co.uk did not really get mentioned. However we are doing a Polish road trip with Dirt in April, going to do a Polish national so we are all stoked!

 Good luck to the new team, I'm a bit curious, what about the compression on the rear of Zumbi F44-Ti, it seems shock angle is a bit brutal, I had a frame similar to this shock angle and the shock was blown very often, I hope this issue is solved this time, and the team have a realy master pice of modern bikes and parts Smile to step on the podiums.. Smile

 We was worried about this if honest but when The Don tested the bike with a 450 spring it was fine and he knows how to test a bike...

 "Myslenice, the mountain bike downhill heartland of Poland" śmieszni jesteście! a z tym Wałęsą to już przesadziliście. Pierw się wypieraliście jeszcze do niedawna że spawane wszystko w Myślenicach a teraz wykorzystujecie fakt spawania w mielcu marketingowo bo tam na zachodzie to nikt i tak o ich "renomie" nie słyszał... PS. ciekawe jak szybko zniknie ten nieprzychylny komentarz

 did hatch used to ride for southfork?
cos I'm sure I've seen a pic of him in a southfork jersey
  • + 0
 Yes Hatch did, good to see him with a fresh squad! And they are just winter race jerseys that are not really branded with sponsors, Fox are sorting us three different coloured kits, they have been unique.

 Poczytaj troche o systemie wprowadzania wolnego rynku w panstwach np jak nasze pokomunistycznym A. Shmita. I zwróc uwagę jak to wykorzystali do zalania naszego rynku obcym kapitałem.
To tyle w skrócie.
Jak by się wziął za to ktos odpowiedzialny (o poglądach patriotycznych) było by inaczej (czytaj lepiej)
