The thing about conventional wisdom is that’s it’s just that - conventional. The Taniwha Mullet defies conventional wisdom and redefines the better riding experience. It combines the best of 29” and 27.5” wheels with the incredible Taniwha platform to give you a ride unlike any other. The best of both worlds show themselves in full force on this weapon — a bike that retains the poppy playfulness of 27.5” wheels, but offers the benefits of larger wheels up front where they count the most.

wide single speed hub

Wider flange spacing than anything super boost and symmetrical spoke angles means your wheel is ultra stiff. It also means you can build up lighter wheels.

world renowned zerode suspension

It’s no lie. We are renowned for the suspension performance of our bikes so don’t think the Taniwha is any different.

business and party

In addition to providing an ultra-stable front end, the 29” wheel up front slackens the geometry so that you'll have more confidence on the descent. It’s one hell of a rowdy party machine out on the trail.

float and stick

With unrivaled stability, the Zerode riding platform strikes the perfect balance between sticking to the ground when you need the stability, and having a rear end you can whip around when you need to react to the rowdiness.

simple

There’s no dinner plate sized cassettes or fragile derailleurs to snap off. It’s just simple, durable and reliable.

gearbox driven

At the heart of the Taniwha is the Pinion Gearbox. Instantaneous shifting, low maintenance and improved traction are just a few of the benefits the gearbox provides.

happy riders worldwide

★★★★★

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.

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 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.

Jamie Garrod

★★★★★

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!
