BLOWFISH build options
want to know more about the Blowfish frame?
Forget everything you thought you knew about "floatation... The Blowfish takes things to a totally new level.
With clearance for up to 100mm rims and 5.05" 2XL tyres, very little else comes close.
We wanted a bike. that would float over the worst that you could throw at it. But we still wanted a bike... one that rode like a bike.
We're pround to present... the Blowfish.
The Blowfish is made from our very own custom drawn, double butted, 7005 alloy Dropbear tubing. (it's heat treated after welding and alignment to ensure strength).
Geometry wise, we designed the Blowfish to go where others fear to roll. So the geometry has been tweaked a little to perform better at slightly slower speeds.
This might very well be the ultimate sand and desert bike!

As always, component specification is subject to change without notice.
This can be due to supplier delays beyond out control. In some cases, component substitution may be required.
All bikes are supplied in "kit" form. Only the wheels are pre-built, however the bike will need to be assembled and this is best done by an experianced bicycle mechanic.
Pricing above does not include dealer assembly costs which may vary from dealer to dealer
FREIGHT charges are not included above.
