The ultimate mountain bike. Although these frames are built according to DH fatigue and impact standards, the use of the highest grades of carbon fibre results in over 600g weigh savings over the alloy versions. The main purpose of the bike is to excel at Enduro races, but even if you don't race, this is probably the most versatile mountain bike of them all.

- Rock Shox Pike RC fork, 160mm travel

- Rock Shox Metric Deluxe Debonair RT3 with lockout

- all pivot points have durable MAX type bearings

- NS Bikes cockpit including: NS Quantum Lite stem, NS Evidence Plus handlebar & Octane One bolt-on grips

- 1x11 SRAM GX drivetrain

- SRAM Guide R hydraulic brakes

- NS Bikes sealed front & rear hubs

- Rock Shox Reverb Stealth dropper-post

- SDG Circuit MTN saddle w/Ti-Alloy rails

- available in 2 frame sizes M (17.0”), L (19”)

The Snabb is the dream bike that we always wanted to have - a machine on which you can keep up with the guys on DH rigs in a bike park on one day, and do an epic ride with your mates on XC rigs on the next.


Praised for performance and reliability, great geometry and fine handling, we treat the Snabb as mission accomplished. Wanna hear some tech talk...? Ok... there is a fair amount of anti-squat built into the horst-link design - this is especially important for use with 1X drivetrains. The 2017 Snabbs now feature one piece rocker arm keeps the already very rigid rear triangle even stiffer. It drives the new generation of shocks from Sram with a trunion mount - longer, bigger, better. The combination of the new shocks and rocker arms result in a more linear suspension curve and overall smoother functioning of the system. The geometry is modern, low, long and slack. We know that NS Bikes customers are usually tough, aggressive riders and expect our products to hold up to seasons of abuse. That is why the frames are built to DH racing standards in both alloy and carbon versions and run on high-end MAX bearings for prolonged periods of smooth, service free use.
