NICOLAI G16 – An eye for the details!

Long, longer, NICOLAI! The ION G13 is every bit as long as it looks!

Over at NICOLAI’s stand the most exciting new addition was easily the ION G16 E-BOXX, an E-MTB, which is largely because their equally impressive, conventional mountain bikes have already been presented. NICOLAI are devout advocates of extremely long geometry, and gave us journos the opportunity to get to grips with the benefits of such length. Alongside the ION G13 29er, the German brand also introduced the classic ION G16 with 27.5″ wheels and a pinion gearbox model.

Beautifully milled CNC parts in every direction.
NICOLAI have paired a long reach with a long rear end. Are we sensing a pattern?
This model with a pinion gearbox is even more extreme than the G13.
No chain! NICOLAI teamed the Pinion gearbox with a Gates Carbon belt drive.
The bike’s biggest asset: less mass at the rear = more sensitive and active suspension.
