The Nerve AL (formerly Nerve XC) was awarded the "Bike of the Year" title six times by Mountainbike magazine.
The 120mm all-rounder is continuing its triumphant run and is just teeming with energy. The motto is to feel good and have fun. Premium anti-squat-kinematic, internally routed cables and asymmetric seat stays give this bike dream marks in all the tests. The test winning frame is fitted with the RockShox Reba RL. The fork absorbs shocks reliably and keeps the bike exactly where it belongs, which is on the trail. The Fox Float Evolution shock with the integrated CTD system delivers a sensitive response and can be operated intuitively during the ride.
Climb, Trail, Descend – a perfect suspension set-up at the simple turn of a lever. Thanks to a scintillating anti-squat-kinematic the bike literally catapults you up to the top of the mountain and then releases its travel in a pleasingly linear fashion on the downhill, thereby guaranteeing increased traction and safety. The Mavic Crossride wheels deliver increased stiffness and the Schwalbe Nobby Nic folding tyres a little more grip. Precise handling, a drive-train neutral rear triangle and outstanding comfort – this textbook tourer is just unbeatable!

braking forces better
Radial pivot bearing
The radial pivot bearing is 20 times stronger than a conventional industrial bearing. Considering the small space it takes up and its proximity to the bottom bracket, it is an important building block for the drive neutrality of the frame.
The integration of hydroformed tube sets in the Nerve XC frame allows a new freedom in design. Flowing, smooth transitions direct the loads, which are generated during cycling, safely and directly through the material. In addition, reinforcing plates (gussets) become unnecessary. This saves weight while maintaining full stiffness.
Asymmetric seat stays
While the seat stay on the left of the frame has to deal with high braking loads, we were able to get the weight down on the less stressed right side. The asymmetrical design of the stays provides maximum braking power on the one hand and a weight advantage on the other side.
Internally routed cables
A superb appearance and protected from weather, the shift cables run inside the frame. To prevent rattling in the down tube we created the crossed cable routing, for which a patent is pending. The cables stabilize each other in this way. By eliminating the cable housing we were again able to reduce weight.
