The advantages of the all-mountain bikes are obvious. The well engineered suspensions guarantee far greater traction and unadulterated ride fun over roots and blocked trails as well as delivering efficient forward power on long climbs. The Nerve AL+, which is based on our successful all-mountain full suspension bike the Nerve AM, has everything you need for your next outdoor trail adventure. The new kinematic delivers the best possible anti-squat performance and 150mm of travel. This results in a minimum of energy sapping squat when climbing and optimum control on the downhill.
On top of that there's the new geometry a flat 67° steering angle for a smooth ride on fast passages and a 74° seat angle for an efficient transmission of rider power. The stiff frame will be even stiffer next season thanks to the X-12 thru-axle and this delivers a more direct and controlled feel to the ride. The fun factor is increased even further if you fit a RockShox Reverb Stealth Vario-seat post with internally routed control cable, which is possible on all Nerve AL+ models. Top all-round ability and a harmonious suspension coupled with precise handling characteristics - experience the new Nerve AL+ for yourself!
Steering precision is a key parameter for the riding characteristics of a mountain bike. Thanks to the tapered steerer the space for the steerer tube and the lower steering bearings is augmented. This leads to a 100% increase in stiffness of the steerer tube.
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.
