Outstanding - Test winner
The best bike around for the Transalp
Outstanding - Test winner
"Outstanding – the test winner! Magnificent! The best bike in the world!" Within an amazingly short time after its market launch, the carbon Nerve CF full-suspension bike was already dominating tests conducted by the world's major cycling magazines. 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, IF design Gold Award and Good Design. The heart of the lightweight carbon frame weighing only 1900 grams is the one-piece full-carbon rear triangle with Flex Pivot seat stays which carry out the function of the rear articulation point. It is the properties of the material and the design of the stays alone that guarantee the deflection of about 3.5 degrees, which is normally effected by a bearing (Flex Pivot technology). This innovative technology minimises weight and maintenance work without making any compromises in suspension performance, lateral stiffness and durability.
The optimised kinematics ensure outstanding climbing performance. With a floating shock and short, rigid and light monocoque carbon rocker, the stiff rear triangle sensitively delivers the 120 mm linear suspension travel and allows you to glide gently into the valleys. As a means of guaranteeing an optimum seat position at all times, even in technically demanding sections, all models are equipped with a RockShox Reverb Stealth Vario seat post which allows easy operation from the handlebar.
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.
