Smart Simplicity par excellence: a bike couldn’t be more minimalistic! This unique hard tail features an 18-speed Pinion gearbox instead of a conventional exposed derailleur and a Gates Carbon Drive belt system instead of a chain. This is Nicolai’s recipe for a lot of trail fun. The Nicolai Argon AM dares to be different! A lot of technology and ‘state of the art’ German engineering hide inside this bike’s trimmed-down form, reduced to only the bare necessities. The geometry and 27.5” wheels ensure both comfort and smooth running, while remaining aggressive enough to really attack the trails! This unique bike has a high potential for fun!


  • Use of high-technology systems to enhance the handling and increase performance: Pinion P1.18 gearbox, Gates Carbon Drive belt
  • Smart Simplicity
  • Aggressive trail geometry
