Introducing the all new Taniwha!
The Taniwha is everything that the brand Zerode believed in, manifested into a tangible form. It is more than just a bike, it is a platform to give you the best possible riding experience and inspire you to ride your best. It is Zerode thinking differently, pushing the boundaries of what an enduro mountain bike can be and taking a big stab at the status quo.
Born from a devotion to a better riding experience, the Zerode Taniwha is a complementary blend of the latest gearbox technology and highest quality carbon fabrication. It will instill you with confidence and have you riding your best. The latest Taniwha is now longer, lower and lighter, with two exciting new colors to pick from.
By moving the unsprung weight of a derailleur and cassette from the back wheel to the bottom bracket, the suspension is free to work like no other bike you have ever ridden - giving it more traction and allowing for a much more compliant and confidence inspiring ride. A derailleur's chain line is always changing as it clambers up and down a cassette resulting in inconsistent pedaling performance. Because of the Taniwha's fixed chain line, pedaling performance is constant and efficient across all gears. Designed and manufactured by hand in Germany, Pinion transmissions are a compact and innovative package. They keep working reliably and virtually maintenance-free.
The new Taniwha has been tweaked to offer a longer lower cockpit. By reducing the seat tube length of each size you can slam your seat, choose a longer reached frame or even just stay as you are. Zerode have based the frame sizes on the reach length as we feel this is the most important factor when deciding on your perfect bike. Some people prefer short and snappy characteristics, where others prefer long and stable. The choice is yours.
