The Snabb was designed with the aim to optimise the following traits: function, weight and reliability. Impressing the public with gimmicks, “patents” and “systems” was not on our list. So here it is – a simple and beautiful platform, light, strong and fast. Many elements of the frame, including the suspension characteristics are inspired by the Fuzz, our new DH frame that has proven itself on the race tracks around the world. We managed to build in a good amount of anti-squat into the horst-link design and at the same time achieved our desired suspension curves. The geometry is modern, low, long and slack. We took into account that NS Bikes customers are usually tough, aggressive riders and expect our products to hold up to seasons of abuse. But at the same time we made sure that everyone, including our team riders will be happy with the performance on race day.
The Snabb rolls on 650B wheels and is available in an Enduro version (160mm rear travel) and a Trail version (140mm). The differences apart from the travel are geometry and tubeset weight. Both versions have specifically designed suspension for the intended use.
The Snabb E2 is an ideal choice for anyone looking for their first real enduro bike. It’s also a great base to build up from, especially since it’s heart is the same aftermarket frame that it’s higher end brother uses. It climbs like an all-mountain bike but when pointed the other way it turns into a real mini-DH shredder. The Snabb E2 features a new fork from Rock Shox – the 160mm travel Yari, and is powered by a 1×10 drivetrain with a climbing cog. The package includes NS aftermarket parts such as the Quantum stem and Terra bars.
