The Snabb is the dream bike that we always wanted to have - a machine on which you can keep up with the guys on DH rigs in a bike park on one day, and do an epic ride with your mates on XC rigs on the next. Praised for performance and reliability, great geometry and fine handling, we treat the Snabb as mission accomplished. Wanna hear some tech talk...? Ok... there is a fair amount of anti-squat built into the horst-link design - this is especially important for use with 1X drivetrains. The 2017 Snabbs now feature one piece rocker arm keeps the already very rigid rear triangle even stiffer. It drives the new generation of shocks from Sram with a trunion mount - longer, bigger, better. The combination of the new shocks and rocker arms result in a more linear suspension curve and overall smoother functioning of the system. The geometry is modern, low, long and slack. We know that NS Bikes customers are usually tough, aggressive riders and expect our products to hold up to seasons of abuse. That is why the frames are built to DH racing standards in both alloy and carbon versions and run on high-end MAX bearings for prolonged periods of smooth, service free use. #snabbmeansfast

The ultimate mountain bike. Although these frames are built according to DH fatigue and impact standards, the use of the highest grades of carbon fibre results in over 600g weigh savings over the alloy versions. The main purpose of the bike is to excel at Enduro races, but even if you don't race, this is probably the most versatile mountain bike of them all.

- new rocker arm, 1pcs design
- 150g lighter comparing to 2016
- stiffer rear end
- re-designed suspension curve
- new SRAM Super Deluxe metric shock
- designed for Trail & Enduro riding
- 160 mm travel
- modern aggressive geometry with long reach and slack angles

the frames have a good amount of anti-squat into the horst-link design, perfect for 1X drivetrains which tend to produce more squatting than traditional 2X setups. After many prototypes we achieved our desired suspension curves which make for a fantastic ride that gives a feeling of support but at the same time allows full range of travel to be used. The 4-bar Horst link suspension has a significant amount of rearward axle movement which helps to absorb square faced bumps. The system, unlike most other designs on the market (including virtual pivot designs) it is immune to brake jack (i.e. the torque generated by the brakes will not cause the suspension to stiffen).

Since the Snabb proved to be such a great bike, we couldn't resist making a a superlight carbon version. The Snabb C's frame is almost 500g lighter than it's alloy counterpart. We spent a lot of time on the R&D process to make sure our new product is perfect in terms of quality and stability of manufacturing. We use a high-end EPS moulding method in order to get the lightest, stiffest and most consistent frames. The frames have very smooth internal surfaces that prevent stress-cracking, delimitation and irregularities inside tubes.

Both frames have very long front ends, but the compact chain stays keep the wheelbase at bay. The Snabb E comes with a slack 66 degree head angle and slightly longer chain stays to help keep the bike stable and higher descending speeds. It's designed to be used with a 160-170mm fork. The Snabb T will work best with a 140 to 160mm fork which give a respective 67.5 - 66.5 degree head angle.
