We are on the hunt for an ambassador!

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."
