The traditional German manufacturers have been presenting their new products in hall A2 for years now. Next to the Helius AC, Nicolai will offer single bikes as complete bikes in 2015.

The guys at Nicolai have reworked the popular Helius AC and have changed the geometry of the bike almost completely. As a result the rear is shorter in combination with a longer main frame, as well as completely changed characteristics. The Helius AC is available as a frame set (including RockShox Monarch RT3) for €1949 or as a complete bike for €4699.

Das Nicolai Helius AC ist von nun an auch als Komplettbike für einen Preis von 4.699€ erhältlich.
From now on, the Nicolai Helius AC is as a complete bike priced at €4699.
