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 ultimate riding experience means more than just time on the trail. Gone are the days of continuous drive train maintenance and upgrades that take up your time and lighten your wallet.

Hey Ali! Its Josh again. I absolutely love my bike and recommend it to everyone. It helped me pull a few more podiums before the season ended and is an absolute blast to ride!Josh WatsonUtah
I’m completely gobsmacked! This new Katipo is revolutionary! It just flies through the rocks and lands jumps like a feather. I climbed pitches all my younger buddies had to hike-a-bike. Just sold all my 11-speed derailleurs, chains, shifters, etc… never going back. All future bike purchases will be gearbox bikes.Will LangeArkansas - USA
I rode my local DH trail yesterday and I am beyond stoked with the Katipo. ..... This bike changes the sport, literally! As soon as the borders open I will head over to Rotorua with the family and ride it on home turf.

This thing is the most stable, sickest bike I've ever had. It's perfect on the janky techy steeps I like to ride here in Rotorua. I don't think I'll ever go back.Sam SuttonRotorua, New Zealand
