The Karapoti geometry is where 29er mountain biking evolved and settled down into long distance race scene. This is a tried and tested 29er geometry designed for 80-100mm suspension forks. Rotational weight on XC tyres have got better and thats why the Karapoti fits from 2.0 to 2.4" tyres. This geometry might look old - however it works as it has evolved over time. The Karapoti is also available as a Pinion Gearbox Frame.
