Outstanding - Test winner
The best bike around for the Transalp
Outstanding - Test winner
"Outstanding – test winner! Magnificent! The best bike in the world!" Within no time after its launch, the carbon full-suspension Nerve CF was already dominating tests conducted by the world's most important cycling publications. The design world has also delivered its verdict on the elegant design of the Nerve CF – "State of the art", as demonstrated by renowned, international design awards such as reddot, the IF design Gold Award and Good Design. The heart of the lightweight 1900g carbon frame is a one-piece full-carbon rear triangle with Flex Pivot seat stays that double up to function as the rear articulation point. Due to the design and properties of carbon, it is the stays with Flex Pivot technology alone that guarantee around 3.5 degrees of deflection, which is normally achieved by using bearings.
This innovative technology is maintenance-free and saves weight without making any compromises in suspension performance, lateral stiffness or durability. The optimised kinematics ensure outstanding climbing performance. With a floating rear shock and short, rigid, lightweight monocoque carbon rocker, the stiff rear triangle delivers the full 120 mm of linear travel with incredible sensitivity, allowing you to glide down trails. To guarantee the optimum seat position at all times whatever the terrain, all models come equipped with the remotely adjustable RockShox Reverb Stealth vario seatpost.
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 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.
