Take a fatbike, mix in a gearbox, then give the rider a pen and we have a truly radical machine.
Liam Crook, our team rider loves his Henderson and has been ripping up the trails not only in his home woods in Cranham, but also several enduro events.
Then chuck in his experience on other extreme bikes and his love of the Pinion Gearbox and you have the recipe for the crazy TiPin LS

The Pinion core technology is built around spur gearing. This provides high-precision shifting. Permanently reliable, wear-free, low maintenance. Pinion transmission delivers long-lasting performance and reliability perfectly suited to go with a fatbike. Centrally integrated in the bicycle frame and protected by an enclosed housing, the gearbox is the epitome of innovative bicycle drive technology.
Our first test bike was fitted with the P1.18 version. After many hours of testing we have decided to spec the more affordable and lighter C-Line.
The C1.12, which is 12 speed and has a lighter magnesium casing and still has all the benefits of its more expensive bigger brother.
