2015 NS Bikes Clash 2(26inch) @ $1180

The Clash is a true all-round fun bike. Tough and light, simple and multi-functional. This alloy hardtail will feel great to ride hard on any kind of challenging terrain. It will tackle the urban jungle, rip at the pumptrack and let you ride comfortably back home as well. A nice price and great components are the only things that clash in this bike! You will find the lightweight NS Quantum stem and Sam Pilgrim signature grips, NS Terra handlebar, lightweight Kenda tires and Octane One saddle on this bike. All these components are mounted on the sweet alloy frame that is built to last.

2015 NS Bikes Movement(26inch) @ $1350

The Movement is our new dedicated dirt jumping bike. With many of today’s riders preferring alloy frames over steel we decided to introduce an alternative to our popular Metropolis bikes. With the same geometry but a lighter and stiffer frame it is a great option to the Metropolis 2 for riders who do not insist on cromoly. Our new dirt bike is ready to handle anything that you throw at it. The stiff and responsive frame is a great choice for riders who spend most of their time riding (or digging) dirt.

2015 NS Bikes Metropolis 1 @ $1650

The Metropolis is a dedicated dirt jumping bike. You can take it straight out of the box and head to practice your 360 nosedives, or even go for a big backflip at a event. If you are not planning to go so far, hit the streets and practice some off-the-bank tailwhips. The bike is ready for this kind of stuff because it has all the features of a modern pro-level dirt bike. The geometry and parts have been chosen by our top riders, therefore the build is significantly different than what you normally find in “corporate” bikes. The Metropolis 1 features loads of great parts mounted on a multi-butted NS cromoly frame. We spec’d our new Lick handlebars, Quantum stem, fast rolling Kenda Small Block 8 tires, sealed bearing hubs front and rear, a microdrive 25:11 drive-train, Sram hydraulic rear brake.

The geometry and parts have been chosen by our top riders, therefore the build is significantly different than what you normally find in “corporate” bikes. The Metropolis 2 continues into 2015 as our middle-of-the-range dirt bike. Built around a full cromoly NS frame with press fit BB, fitted with NS aftermarket components, a compact drive train and hydraulic brake this classic remains hard to beat.

2015 NS Bikes Metropolis 3 @ $1080

The Metropolis is a dedicated dirt jumping bike. You can take it straight out of the box and head to practice your 360 nosedives, or even go for a big backflip at a event. If you are not planning to go so far, hit the streets and practice some off-the-bank tailwhips. The bike is ready for this kind of stuff because it has all the features of a modern pro-level dirt bike. The geometry and parts have been chosen by our top riders, therefore the build is significantly different than what you normally find in “corporate” bikes. The Metropolis 3 continues into 2015 as our entry-level dirt bike. It’s built on a solid NS frame and fitted with high end NS aftermarket parts – rare in this price category. Our aim was to make a bike accessible to everyone and offer 100% of the function that high-end bikes have, with the only compromise being slightly higher weight. There are no “do-not-jump” warning stickers on this bike!

Ns bikes Soda 2014

Soda 2014

Since its introduction in 2012 the Soda has received great reviews and proved itself to be an incredibly versatile bike. Just check out the wide diversity of builds you can find on the internet. But what’s more important, the Soda has a great track record of problem-free use. The philosophy behind this bike was to make a platform that would be first and foremost fun and reliable, and it looks like this has been achieved in the long run.

For 2014 the Soda has received a major lift: lots of small details have been refined, the frame has lost weight without sacrificing strength or reliability and the frame sizes have been increased to improve seated pedalling ranges.

During the Alpine Trip where our main goal was to shoot the new Eccentric and Fuzz bikes Sam decided to take the new Soda 1 out for a spin. Our camera guys thought it would be cool to follow him and get some footage. All went well at first, Sam had some fun throwing the bike around the town of Zell am See and we got some cool shots. But then he decided to take a run down the bongo bongo and hang man trails in the Leogang bike park and things got ugly with the weather.

The slopes were so slippery it was almost impossible to even stand, yet alone ride. But the guys decided to keep going, and we managed to film a few of Sam’s runs. Check out this short edit showing want went on up there.

Stay tune for the arrival of the 2014 Soda in store!

NS Bikes’ New Downhill and Enduro Rigs for 2014!

NS Bikes Fuzz
Prototypes of NS Bikes’ new downhill bike were spotted earlier in the summer underneath the company’s team riders, and now, after a season of testing, the bike is ready for production. The new bike, called the Fuzz, sports an aluminum frame with either 201 or 207mm of travel depending on the rear wheel position. The effective chainstay length alters depending on rear wheel position as well, coming in at either 420 or 438mm. The bike’s true four bar linkage design has the rear shock passing through the rear seat tube before mounting on the rear swing arm, for a design that is intended to minimize brake jack and pedal feedback. With its roomy cockpit and relatively short chainstays, the Fuzz’s geometry is meant to create a stable yet quick handling bike, one that we could see being able to do double duty in the bike park and on the race course. Internal cable routing is in place for riders who wish to use it, but there is also the option of running the housing externally, which can come in handy for emergency equipment swaps on race day.

Two different complete versions of the Fuzz will be available, the Fuzz 1 and the Fuzz 2, as well as a frame only option. The Fuzz 1’s parts package comes equipped with a RockShox Boxxer RC fork and Vivid RC2C coil shock for €3699 (US pricing TBD). The Fuzz 2 is the more budget oriented option, with a kit that includes a RockShox Domain coil fork and a Kage rear shock for €2899. The frame only will run €2139 with a Vivid R2C.

Fuzz details:

  • Intended use: DH/freeride
  • Rear wheel travel: 201 or 207mm
  • Wheel size: 26″
  • Aluminum frame
  • 157x12mm rear hub
  • Internal or external cable routing
  • Frame weight: 3.5kg without shock
  • Head angle: 63.5 degrees, adjustable


The Fuzz has two rear wheel positions, which will change the chainstay length along with the amount of travel. Small details worth mentioning include the bike’s internal routing with wide ports for easy access, and an integrated seatpost clamp.

NS Bikes Snabb
NS also had a new all-mountain bike at the show as well. Called the Snabb (Swedish for fast), the complete bike comes set up with 27.5″ wheels, but has interchangeable dropouts for those who wish to run 26″ wheels, a useful feature for the “You can pry 26″ wheels from my cold, dead hands” crowd. With 163mm of travel, a 66 degree head angle and a true four bar linkage design, the bike looks like it could be a capable bike, one that’s designed to shine on the downhills. Plus, with a frame only option available, riders have the ability to build the bike up as burly or light as they want.

Snabb details:

  • Intended use: all-mountain / enduro
  • 163mm travel
  • Head tube angle: 66 degrees
  • Chainstay length: 433mm


The Snabb uses a true four bar suspension design, and features a tapered headtube and interchangeable dropouts.
