NS Bikes Core 1 2012 Mountain Bike


The NS Bikes Core 1 2012 Mountain Bike is a true Freeride Hardtail that will feel great to ride hard on any kind of challenging terrain – from big drops and jumps to long climbs and winding singletrack. We believe that steel is the ideal material for this kind of bike -it’s strong, not prone to catastrophic failure and does not transmit vibrations as harshly as the aluminium in frames that most manufacturers specify. The geometry of the Core is identical to the Surge aftermarket frames. The bike will be stable at high speed and on big airs, but will also allow the rider to pedal back home quite comfortably. And even our hard-core dirt-jumping riders, who tried the Core, reported that they felt totally at home with the riding position. So, if you want a do-it-all Hardtail, you should be riding this bike.


The Core 1 is a top-of-the-line Freeride machine, packed with a bunch of high-end parts – you will get the new Marzocchi 55RS fork with a custom alloy steer tube for weight saving, Hussefelt cranks, lightweight Kenda tires, Sram X7 1×10 drivetrain, sealed bearing front and rear hubs by Octane One, NS Fundamental rims, and many more great additions, all mounted on the beautiful multi-butted cromoly NS frame.
