NS Bikes Decade Frame

The Decade is our brand new alloy hardtail. Tried and tested during the whole of the last year's season in various applications. The frame was not only used by dirt jumpers who prefer the feel of alloy frames but also by 4X racers and pump track riders. The name is not a co-incidence - it’s now 10 years since we launched our first steel hardtail. We know that steel is great but many riders simply prefer the looks and feel of big rigid tubes. The frame shares many of the tubes and the same style as the NS Soda full suspension frames. It features a removable ISCG mount (included), removable derailleur hanger (included), semi-integrated headset, and is designed to work with forks from 100-140mm of travel. The frame is incredibly strong yet still very light at just over 2.1kg.

The Decade's geometry is based on the Majesty Dirt and just like our flagship steel hardtail, the Decade also features sweet arched seat stay bridges that give lot's of tire clearance.
