NS Bikes Snabb Trail Frame Monarch RT3

The brand new Snabb platform was designed with the aim to optimise function, weight and reliability. Impressing the public with gimmicks, “patents” and “systems” was not on the list.

So here it is - beautiful, light, strong and fast. We took into account that NS Bikes customers are usually tough, aggressive riders and expect our products to hold up to seasons of abuse. But at the same time we made sure that everyone, including the NS team riders will be happy with the performance on race day.

The Snabb T is best described as an aggressive trail bike with a slightly steeper head angle, 143mm of travel, modern geometry and tough but lightweight construction. It will work best with a 140 to 150mm fork which give a respective 67.5 - 67.0 degree head angle.

The frame has a good amount of anti-squat into the horst-link design, perfect for 1X drivetrains which tend to produce more squatting than traditional 2X setups. After many prototypes NS achieved the desired suspension curves which make for a fantastic ride that gives a feeling of support but at the same time allows full range of travel to be used. The 4-bar Horst link suspension has a significant amount of rearward axle movement which helps to absorb square faced bumps. The system, unlike most other designs on the market (including virtual pivot designs) it is immune to brake jack (i.e. the torque generated by the brakes will not cause the suspension to stiffen).

Also equipped with the latest RockShox Monarch RT3 Debonair shocks with a linear spring curve and amazing small bump sensitivity.
