NS Bikes Clash 1 Bike

The Clash is a true all-round fun bike with light alloy frame. Tough yet light, simple and multi-functional. The Clash is a hardtail that will feel great to ride hard on any kind of challenging terrain – from big drops and jumps to long climbs and winding singletrack. The bike will be stable at high speed and on big airs, but will also allow the rider to pedal back home quite comfortably. And even our hard-core dirt-jumping riders, who tried the Clash, reported that they felt totally at home with the riding position. So, if you want a do-it-all hardtail, you should be riding this bike. The Clash 1 is a top-of-the-line machine, packed with a bunch of high-end parts - you will get the new X-Fusion Slant 140mm fork with a alloy steer tube and 15mm axle for weight saving, lightweight Kenda tires, sealed bearing front and rear hubs by Octane One, Sram X5 1x8 drivetrain, NS Fundamental rims, and many more great additions, all mounted on the beautiful new alloy frame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent do-it-all bike I bought this bike at the start of 2013 and my plan was to use it as a XC/AM bike and on rare occasions at the local dirt-spot. Since i bought this bike i have improved my overall speed with 2 km/h on the local XC route, which i used to ride on my Cube XMS, and after changing the tires i had no problem taking on some epic AM tours in the swiss and italian alps, where it climbed like a dream and killed it while charging down through massive rock sections and narrow singletracks. I also got to use it on some of the concrete pumptracks/DJ-spots in Switzerland, where it performed perfectly. With the saddle all the way down and the proper setup of the fork it managed to outrun some of the locals, and i felt completely comfortable when i was flying over the big tables and gaps at the local dirt spot. Overall i'd say it is one of the best bikes i've ever owned. Great fork, haven't had any problems with the SRAM gearing and the single chain setup has a great range of gears for everything. If you want a bike to use for everything from AM and XC to DJ, you should definitly take the Clash into consideration. 26 August 2013
