Zula 27.5"

The 27.5" wheel and the Zula platform are truly a marriage made in heaven. It's an evolution of one of Morewoods most iconic single pivots. Major improvements to stiffness without additional weight have arguably produced the company's most versatile bike yet. It's as capable of performing light trail duties as it is on multi day stage races.

SPI LITE

Stable Pivot Interface Lite

Simpler, stronger and lighter

Stable Pivot Interface is Morewood's solution to low-maintenance and simplicity for our single pivot frame designs. SPI Lite is the lightest version of SPI to date. It differs from the SPI and SPI2 by eliminating the bolt that usually holds the caps together and consists of only two caps that screw into one another. This reduces the overall weight of the system, and delivers the same reliable low-maintenance performance you have come to expect from Morewood. (Currently it is only found on the Zula, and cannot be used as a substitute on bikes with SPI2.)
