The advantages of all-mountain bikes are clear for all to see. A superb chassis provides extra traction when tackling root-riddled, rocky trails whilst allowing efficient power transfer to take on long ascents. With 150mm of travel to play with and outstanding anti-squat characteristics, you get the best of both downhill and climbing performance. The Nerve AL+ gives you everything you need to go and take on the mountains.
Its balanced geometry and slack 67° steering angle ensure a smooth ride in high speed sections while the acute 74° seat angle means you can transfer power efficiently. Frame rigidity is further increased by the X12 rear and 15mm front thru-axles that create more direct, controlled handling. For even more fun when out on the trails, all Nerve AL+ models come equipped with the RockShox Reverb Stealth vario seatpost with internal cable routing. The best all-round capabilities, a co-ordinated chassis and precise handling – experience the Nerve AL+.
Steering precision is one of the most important parameters for ride features. Thanks to the Tapered Steerer the package space for the fork shaft and the bottom headset. It also allows conical fork shafts to be fitted which give a more direct feel at the front during braking and steering.
We have optimized the pivot points and make use of the tensile forces which are exerted on the suspension. The annoying squat is now a thing of the past - and all this without using the Lockout function. Squat is caused by the changing forces exerted when pedalling and the constant up and down movement of the body. Squat is far more pronounced when the rider is turning smaller gears rather than larger ones. In order to supress squat, our anti-squat-kinematic causes the chain to pull the suspension apart. The ingenious thing about the whole thing is that the supression of squat is much more intense in the smaller gears and much less so in larger gears. The shock therefore needs neither Lockout nor an extreme amount of compression. The rear triangle thus operates much more responsively and delivers greater comfort and control.
The most prominent feature of the modern alloy frame is the one-piece top tube. Thanks to the most modern hydroforming method no gusset is required on the connection to the seat tube. This avoids a further weld seam and a greater reliability and durability is achieved.
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.
