Bike info

With a big 170mm fork, burly tires and slacked out angles, the Snabb 160 is basically a mini DH bike that can also ride uphill - and can do it very quickly. This super versatile bike is strong, rigid and reliable, making it the ideal choice for anyone who wants to shred bike parks on one day and ride trails on the next. We offer the Snabb 160 in two frame materials. The alloy version is built using custom drawn 6061 and 6066 alloy tubes with strong double pass welds and will handle years of heavy duty service.


Tough alloy frame, double pass welds
Long front end, slack head angle
170mm front / 160mm rear travel
Rock Shox suspension
SRAM NX 1x12 drivetrain
35mm NS Bikes cockpit
Trunnion shock standard


Keep up with the guys on DH rigs in a bike park on one day and then do an epic ride with your mates on XC rigs on the next. Widely praised for performance and reliability the Snabb is the most complete mountain bike we can imagine.


The massive one piece rocker arm makes the rear triangle incredibly stable and drives the new generation of shocks with a trunion mount - longer, bigger, better. The suspension kinematics are dialled to perfection (“There is so little pedal-induced bobbing at play here that it sort of boggles the mind” - Pinkbike) and the geometry is modern, low, long and slack. 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. The Snabb range includes the all-out enduro bikes which come in 27.5” and 29” wheel sizes. These are basically mini-DH bikes can also ride uphill - and can do it very quickly. Those of you who want to spend a little more time pedalling should check out the the lighter Snabb 130 Plus version.
