profile

Just a quick glance at this super-light bike is enough to get the pulse racing of any 29er fan. It climbs, manoeuvres and accelerates with the very best whilst offering the smoothest ride around. The hydro-formed tubes mean this premium aluminium frame is incredibly stable, not to mention unique with its flowing design. In addition, every piece of componentry on this bike is first class.

Fox Float Factory series forks and rear shock take care of any terrain. Both are finished with the excellent, friction-reducing Kashima coating and can be remotely adjusted from the handlebars between Climb, Trail and Descend modes. Following the theme of light weight and stiffness, the Nerve AL 9.9 SL comes with a Mavic Crossmax SLR 29 wheelset with milled rims to reduce inertia and provide lightning-quick acceleration.

Bike Classification

Bikes in this category include those from categories 1 and 2 and are designed for harsher, unpaved terrain. The scope for these bikes includes occasional jumps up to a maximum height of 60 cm. Jumps of this scale can cause inexperienced riders to have accidents on landing, which can result in injury. Hardtail mountain bikes and full-suspension bikes with short travel are included in this category.

Anti-Squat-Kinematics
Thanks to the position of the bearing points on the four-link, the so-called anti-squat kinematics, compensates pedal induced bob. Any lockout and high compression damping can be avoided. The rear triangle works sensitively, without any power loss and provides more comfort and traction.

X12 thru-axle
Stiffness is the greatest asset. This doesn't just apply to the frame, but also to the axles. By using an X12 thru-axle the stiffness is increased and bike handling is significantly improved.

Tapered Steerer
More rigidity: The stiffness of a fork can be increased 100% by enlarging the bearing diameter to 1 1/2 inch. The tapered head tube ensures the light weight of the entire system.

Hydro 14
The hydroformed tubes are produced in 14 reforming stages, and they make a frame design possible with optimum stiffness-to-weight ratios. The number of required welds is reduced because of the now superfluous gussets.
