Drawing from the years of research, development and learnings from the iterations of the G1 and G2 and our enduro riding platforms, the G3 represents the embodiment of our origins and the reason the company started - removing complexity from the riding experience and using simple design and the unequivocal principles of physics to improve suspension performance through the gnarliest of terrain. The G3 comes in mullet set up and combines a high pivot design with a belt driven gearbox.

.THE PHYSICS
BEHIND THE PERFORMANCE

At the heart of all our bikes is the concept of Low Unsprung Mass and the G3 leverages this to its full extent. 

Unsprung Mass is the mass of every component unsupported by the bike's suspension that needs to move/rotate when the wheel hits a bump;  wheel, tyre, some of the rear stays, brakes, and of course cluster and derailleurs. When the rear wheel hits an obstacle we want it to react in a way that minimises the disturbance to the chassis and rider.

Thus maximising grip, minimising rider fatigue and reducing resistance to motion. The lower the unsprung mass the less disturbance is transferred to the chassis and rider. This results in more grip, the ability to hold higher speeds through rough sections, less fatigue and a more stable ride.Removing the weight of the cluster and derailleur and moving this to a low centralised position in the gearbox has a significant impact on unsprung weight and suspension performance.

Some may argue the weight of a modern cluster and derailleur is relatively low, but as a ratio to  the other unsprung components, a cluster and derailleur can easily make up 15% of the overall unsprung mass of a traditional bike.

In a world of incremental gains, a 15% improvement in unsprung mass and suspension performance is huge.

I sure as hell felt like I was full of indestructible teenage courage & angst. With traction for days & tank-like stability, you can go wherever you want when you're riding the Taniwha. The bike has a stability to it, or maybe a calmness is a better way to put it, that makes a rider feel like they're more skilled & brave.

This is the best bike I have ever owned. By miles. I can never own another bike a with a derailleur. Ever.

Not only does the Taniwha have the best suspension and handling in it's class, in my view it has the best value because it doesn't need constant maintenance and replacement.

I have never felt so stable and confident that my my bike is going to grip to the ground or pop when I want it to.

I was instantly flashed by the performance of this bike. All the little things i disliked with my eagle drivetrain are gone... shifting while standing (top of the hill) or smashing a couple of gears.. I dont think I am ever going back to a "regular" drivetrain.

I just returned from 4 weeks riding in Italy, and I took my Katipo. The bike performed flawlessly in every situation it put it in. I have been super happy with the Katipo from day 1 out of the box and this trip cemented my happiness!

This thing handles WAY more than it should for a Trail bike!

Having ridden normal enduro bikes and also extreme singlespeed configurations, I was simply amazed: the Taniwha combines the best of both worlds. It gives the absolute dynamic of singlespeed with an ultra-light rear, while combining a complete and responsive transmission system. The weight distribution gives the bike extraordinary stability. And the belt transmission gives a feeling of absolute serenity by eliminating all vibrations in the frame. This is the best bike I have ever ridden! And by far!
