THE STORY BEHIND NS

Forward thinking.
Open minds.
Caring about what we do.
Listening to our riders.
Working hard to achieve the results that we planned.
Not giving up somewhere in the middle of the road.
Doing only what we can do best.
Doing things differently.

These are just a few of the leading thoughts that have been with us since the beginning of NS Bikes.

When we started working on our first frame, the Street legal, pretty much everyone was shaking their heads in disbelief. Sure, it was a crazy project. At that time no one believed that we could go anywhere with that one. But we took the risk. We pushed the project through and built the frames. And guess what? We sold all of them much faster than we planned. How come? Well, probably because the frame was designed and developed by REAL progressive riders, and there happened to be a few other REAL progressive riders out there who needed that kind of product. Not many, but enough to inspire us and give us a feeling that someone appreciates what we do.

The same story repeated with several other products... we always heard voices doubting if what we were doing had any chance on the market. But in the end, the most crazy concepts always proved to be successful.

What’s interesting is that some companies are actually making their brand new frames based on our 2003 design - but so what? Since then our frames have gone through something like 10 evolutions. Riders evolve, the sport evolves, so our products are always up on the frontline. Always changing, adapting.

Our new products have gone a long way in the last few years. And we are not ashamed to admit that something can be changed, something can be improved. In fact, no matter how hard we try, we can't keep ourselves from redesigning everything each year. If something can be improved - we just have to do it.

I think that another thing that defines NS is that it's a company dedicated to making highly specialized products for a narrow group of customers. That means that we doubt whether NS will ever be the choice of the “Hey, I want to buy a mountain bike because it’s cool” customer. The beginner rider probably won't appreciate the details that make our products special either. And it means that you can be pretty sure that if you meet someone on an NS, they will speak the same language as you do, no matter what country they come from.

In the future, we hope that people will shake their heads the next time we show them our new design. It means that we are still thinking different. And that’s good.

Eccentric AL2_Grey:Orange_6.jpg

Eccentric Hard Trail


Eccentric

Trail HardTail 

 

The concept of a tough trail hardtail makes a lot of sense for many riders. The Eccentric will cover a lot of ground - epic all-day trips, pumptrack sessions and everything else in between too. 650B wheels, modern aggressive geometry and good specs make this a simple and beautiful freedom machine.

Fuzz 2_White:Orange_2.jpg

Fuzz


Fuzz

Downhill with no limits.

 

The launch of the Fuzz was a huge milestone moment for NS. It was a complex project that proved to be a really serious challenge for our team. But looking back, we have to admit it - it's a f&^%# great bike!

 

The Fuzz has been thrashed and flipped by Sam Pilgrim and it's proved itself in the racing environment too, taking podiums at major DH events worldwide. Racers have clocked their personal records on this bike and freeriders have taken lines that they didn't believe were possible.

 

The geometry is truly modern - it's low, slack, has a tight rear end and a long front triangle. The 4-bar Horst link suspension has a significant amount of rearward axle movement which helps to absorb square faced bumps. There is also a fair amount of anti-squat built into the design to counter pedal-induced bob. The shock, which is the most heavy part of the frame is tucked away near the BB to keep the centre of gravity as low as possible.

Snabb E2_Black:Blue_3.jpg

Snabb Trail & Enduro


SNABB 

Trail and Enduro 

The Snabb was designed with the aim to optimise the following traits: function, weight and reliability. Impressing the public with gimmicks, “patents” and “systems” was not on our list. So here it is - a simple and beautiful platform, light, strong and fast. Many elements of the frame, including the suspension characteristics are inspired by the Fuzz, our new DH frame that has proven itself on the race tracks around the world. We managed to build in a good amount of anti-squat into the horst-link design and at the same time achieved our desired suspension curves. The geometry is modern, low, long and slack. We took into account that NS Bikes customers are usually tough, aggressive riders and expect our products to hold up to seasons of abuse. But at the same time we made sure that everyone, including our team riders will be happy with the performance on race day.

The Snabb rolls on 650B wheels and is available in an Enduro version (160mm rear travel) and a Trail version (140mm). The differences apart from the travel are geometry and tubeset weight. Both versions have specifically designed suspension for the intended use.

Metropolis 1_Blue_4.jpg

Metropolis 1


Metropolis

The Metropolis is our dedicated steel dirt jumping bike. You can take it straight out of the box and head to Mellowpark to practice your 360 nosedives, or even go for a big backflip at a Crankworx event. If you are not planning to go so far, hit the streets and practice some off-the-bank tailwhips. The bike is ready for this kind of stuff because it has all the features of a modern pro-level dirt bike. The geometry and parts have been chosen by our top riders, therefore the build is significantly different than what you normally find in “corporate” bikes.

Movement


Movement

The Movement is our new dedicated dirt jumping bike line. With many of todays riders preferring aluminium frames over steel we decided to introduce an alternative to our popular Metropolis bikes. With the same geometry but a lighter and stiffer frame it is a great option to the Metropolis for riders who do not insist on cromoly.

Zircus_Smoke_4.jpg

Zircus


Zircus

 

The Zircus is perfect for playing in the city and off-road. With a lightweight and strong aluminium frameset, 100mm travel fork, single speed drivetrain with horizontal dropouts the bike is all that you will need to shred your local trails. 

This very successful bike form the last two seasons will be continued in 2016. A super strong and light frame with geometry influenced by our pro dirt jumpers combined with a selection of NS Bikes components and a great price makes this package is hard to beat. An optional derailleur hanger is available so you can convert this bike from single speed to gears if needed.

Soda Slope_Green_2.jpg

Slope Style


Soda Slope

A radical new-school slopestyle and dirt bike that can go where hardtails are just not enough. The heart of the bike is the tough and reliable frame with a concentric BB pivot system.

The bike can be run in single speed mode or can be used with a derailleur for freeriding. We applied the same geometry concept that we use in our hardtails so anyone who likes the feel of our Metropolis bikes or hardtail frames will feel at home on the Soda Slope. It is exceptionally nimble and manoeuvrable with one of the shortest chain stays we have ever seen on production full suspension bikes.

The Soda Slope was designed to feel just like a proper dirt jump bike that has a safety valve for big hits and high speed runs.
