One of the most popular Nicolai bikes available is the Nicolai Ion 16 enduro model. The first ION16 was introduced at the Eurobike 2013. The new kinematic works; the bike responds immediately. Every single push on the pedals results in acceleration. Shock tuning has been optimised. The back of the bike responds sensitively whilst remaining sturdy in travel. recently reviewed the Nicolai Ion 16 and said “it seems almost unfair to compare it to virtually any other 160mm bike.” The Ion 16 proves that German Handbuilt Quality is still the best in the world. With Nicolai producing the bike all in house from tip to tail the bike is the ultimate enduro bicycle in the world. Riders have been ordering the bike for the past year and have no problem waiting in line while their custom Ion 16 is in production.

The next family member to the Ion 16 is the Ion 20 Downhill bike. The Ion 20 Downhill Bike was introduced recently with the Effigear and Gates Carbon Drive. With no derailleur to smash on rocks and no greasy chain to maintain, this big-hit full suspension bike is clean, quiet, low-maintenance and extremely durable. This type of innovation is what has made Nicolai apparent in World Cup Finals. Most recently Nicolai Ion 20 was named one of the Dirt 100 featured best downhill bikes of the year. This bike will be on display at Interbike 2014.

Nicolai bikes are known for their Gearbox bikes. One of the most popular is the Helios AC. The Helios AC with Pinion feels just as good on a mega avalanche as it does on fast flat trails. made with a 140mm fork, sturdy tires and a lightweight construction of around 12kg as well as with a 160mm fork and fat studs at 14kg.

The relationship between Gates Carbon Drive and Nicolai is evident in how easy both Nicolai frames and Gates belt drives can be applied. The technology behind Gates Carbon Drive is rooted in high horsepower motorcycles and dragsters. This high performance technology has been perfected for a wide variety of bicycles. At the core of the drive is the CenterTrack belt. Made in the USA, this 11-mm pitch, carbon-fiber belt is stronger than and as efficient as a traditional bike chain. The drive is completed with innovative sprocket designs and your choice of internally-geared or single-speed applications. The patented Gates Carbon Drive gives you a longer-lasting, lower-maintenance drive, and most importantly, an unbelievably awesome ride.
