The best bike around for the Transalp
"A top model watches its weight". This was the motto during the development phase of the high-end trail bike the Nerve CF. The elegant design can only be described as state-of-the-art. The core of the 1900g lightweight frame is the newly developed one-piece full carbon rear triangle with flex pivot seat stays, which replace the function of a pivot. The characteristics of the material and design of the seat stays alone allow a deflection of around 3.5°, which is normally delivered by a pivot bearing (Flex Pivot Technology). This innovative technology minimizes both weight and the need for maintenance without compromising suspension performance, lateral stiffness and service life.
The optimized kinematic guarantees outstanding climbing performance. The stiff rear triangle with its floating shock and the short, stiff and light monocoque carbon rocker sensitively delivers its 120mm of linear travel and allows you to glide smoothly down into the valley. In order to find the optimum seat position on the bike in technical sections, all models are fitted with a RockShox Reverb Stealth adjustable seat post, which can be easily operated from the handlebar via remote. Light, stiff and efficient are the adjectives which best describe the Nerve CF. This bike has a built-in trail fun guarantee!
The seat stays consist of an integrated and flexible carbon structure. That means they flex fractionally when compressing. The flex of just 3.5° is minimal. This does away with the need for pivots on the chain stays. This also reduces both wear and tear as well as weight.
The rocker is manufactured from one-piece full carbon. The lower shock eye is not fitted to the main frame, but moves together with the rear triangle on the extension of the chain stays. The tuning of the leverage ratios of the upper and lower shock eyes made the optimization of the kinematic characteristic curve possible whilst achieving the most efficient use of materials.
The entire rear triangle is made of full carbon and is all one piece without any weld seams or pivots. This makes the rear triangle extremely stiff whilst being very low in weight. In addition, the bike has a unique design.
The hydraulic line on the Reverb Stealth seat post runs inside the frame. This ends the need for the irritating expansion bend. For the Puritans who don’t want a Vario seat post, the guide hose and outlet connections at the front can be completely removed so that the bike isn’t a single gram too heavy. The frame displays a very tidy appearance both with and without the Reverb Stealth.
