Our ION 18 has become indispensable in just one season. It’s a real freerider, regardless of whether you have a double crown fork to rush down downhill tracks or a single crown fork for playing around in bikeparks. Many riders value its low weight, considering it’s a long-travel bike and they like the way it climbs, thanks to the NICOLAI-Sram-direct-mount front mech and the 2x10 derailleur system. Some customers have built sub 15Kg ION 18 bikes proving you can climb and descend equally well.
The Pinion gear box offers 18 speed and an overall gear ratio of 636% - more than any other derailleur system or internal gear hub. The gearbox is perfectly integrated into the bicycle frame and it requires almost no maintenance. The centered balance and the lighter rear wheel have a positive influence on handling, the driving dynamics and rear-end suspension performance. The transmission responds instantaneously to switching commands.
Almost all NICOLAI models can be equipped with the Pinion P1.18 gearbox, exept these: ION 20, ION 16 and Nicolai E-Boxx models.
