Robert Shivnan (2015-2016, 2023-)

Howat #3 was ordered back in 2012, but wouldn’t be completed till 2015 when Robert Shivnan & “Hairy” made their debut at Round 1 in Whanganui.

Bert & Hairy come from a Winch Comp background in the Tararua’s. Together they both ordered their own frames with to suit both Trials & Winch comp needs. Originally featuring Coil Spring suspension and winch plates!

It didn’t take long for the popular Fox Air Shocks to find their place, as the duo completed a handful of rounds in the 2016 season.

After 7 years off Bert makes a return at the Wairarapa!
