It’s been a long time coming and for good reason. We have meticulously poured ourselves into every detail of this beauty. It is through and through a manifestation of the philosophy that guides us at Zerode - to give you the best possible riding experience.



We design in Rotorua New Zealand, mountain bikes that inspire confidence, reduce maintenance & increase performance on the status quo.


The new

Taniwha Mulét

We are excited to announce the release of a mixed wheel size option to expand our full suspension Taniwha lineup. The new Taniwha Mulét capitalises on the incredible versatility of the Taniwha platform to deliver a ride that combines the best elements of 29 and 27.5” wheels, and it is available immediately to global consumers in both 140 and 160mm travel versions.

Less MAINTENANCE & more riding

600% range of sealed gears that never need tuning & shift better the more they get ridden.

More traction = more fun

Rowdier lines, faster corners, more stability in the rough. By having the gearbox central in the frame, it decreases unsprung mass, greatly improving sensitivity which gives you a more compliant & confidence inspiring ride


"The advantages of a gearbox are real. The dramatic improvements in suspension function are unquestioned, as it is near silent & more reactive than anything else on the market."

Trev Worsey - Enduro MTB


"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."
