    Karate Monkey is a highly-versatile trail bike that plays the part of 29er and 27.5+ equally well.

    Multipurpose Hardtail Mountain Bike

    Karate Monkey delivers a resilient, lively ride on all sorts of gnarly terrain. Its frame is a highly-versatile canvas for whatever dirty masterpiece your brain cooks up. According to our computing machine (Thor) it can be set up in approximately 487 different configurations.

    Originally designed as a 29er (and the frame that helped spark the 29 wheel movement), the latest Karate Monkey is designed to perform just as admirably as a 27.5+ rig as well. This allows you to pick your poison provided your poison is having a really great time while permanently donning a shit-eating grin, of course.

    • Modern trail standards: dropper post compatibility, 44mm headtube, Gnot-Boost rear spacing, thru-axles, suspension corrected fork
    • Compatibility with most mountain bike standards makes it the perfect parts bin bike (no rim brakes allowed though)
    • Clearance for 29 x 2.5 or 27.5 x 3 tires
