Bike info

The bike runs on big wheels, has 130mm travel and is just as tough as all our previous Snabb models - meaning you can push it to the limits on the descents, send it wherever you want and still be the first back on top of the hill. The bike comes fitted with 29” wheels however if you ever want to make a swap to big 27.5+ tires the frame has plenty of clearance to fit anything up to 3.0”.

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.
