Division Gets 4/5 In WMB Grouptest
Not a bad start, eh?
The Zealous Division is featured in ‘Hardcore 29er Hardtails’ grouptest in the current What Mountain Bike (issue 165, Sept. 2014) and we scored a rather nice 4 out of 5!
Up against competition from established brands, it was always going to be hard for us, but we got third overall in the test coming behind 2 bikes that are significantly more expensive and from way bigger companies. A win would have been amazing obviously, but we’re stoked with the result – especially as the Division is, in our opinion, a much more specific & focussed beast than the 2 bikes placing higher – more aggressive with a focus on smashing technical trails to bits. We think they got it right, and we’re really happy with the summary:
“Laser accurate and agile hardcore hardtail that’s brilliant for skilled trail bombers but unforgivingly stiff”
and particularly happy with this quote:
“A ferociously fast, involving and rewarding ride”
